We start with today's market negative News Show who rides in the 15:15 at Southwell. An improving winner last time out on soft ground at Yarmouth, the switch to a fibresand debut today seems to be the main concern for this three-year-old filly from the Simcock yard. She's also running under a penalty so jockey Alice Haynes will do well to get the better of her rivals in what is a competitive handicap and the market suggests that she may struggle. The traded price has moved from 1.8910/11 out to 2.35/4.

We stay at Southwell and a 1m Hcap at 16:20 where Brown Pete has been backed in from 10.519/2 to 7.26/1. The four-year-old gelding ran over course and distance in April when he stayed on strongly after a characteristic slow start but just failed to win by a nose. Equipped with an eye shield today and, up against a mediocre field at best, the market suggests that this Richard Guest-trained horse could run a big race.

In the 17:45 at Ayr, Chapellerie ridden by William Carson has been subject to a huge gamble early on today. Backed in from 8.07/1 in to 3.259/4, this three-year-old filly, trained by Richard Guest, has had good recent form, although she's yet to follow up her maiden win of last winter. She's a stand out in an un-convincing field. The drop down to 6f will suit and the good ground will work to her favour, as will the re-applied set of blinkers.
