- Lay Master of Finance in the 14:25 Hexham @ 3.953/1

- Back Queen Deirdre in the 17:35 Gowran @ 2.89/5

We kick things of with our lay of the day coming in 14:25 2m maiden hurdle at Hexham. The horse in question is the Malcom Jefferson trained Master of Finance. He's the classiest horse in the field based on flat ratings but there are concerns over how fit this son of Mastercraftsman will be first time up over hurdles today, having transferred to Jefferson from Mark Johnston's yard earlier in the summer. This looks a competitive maiden hurdle with Spirit of Kayf and Cloud Monkey both looking as though they could be involved at the finish. We advise laying Master of Finance at 3.953/1 having drifted out from as short as 2.8815/8 this morning.

Brigiadoro represents our each way bet of the day in the 14:35 1m handicap at Ascot. Having been an impressive winner of a 1m handicap at Yarmouth in July, Brigliadoro proved to still be in good form when finishing strongly in a hot handicap at Newmarket seven days ago. Down in grade and getting the assistance of Silvestre De Sousa today we make our selection a confident each way bet at 8.07/1.

Finally, our back of the day comes in the last at Gowran Park the 17:35 2m listed bumper for mares. Our selection here is the Willie Mullins trained Queen Deirdre. This daughter of Kings Theatre was last seen when destroying her rivals by 12 lengths at the Galway Festival. That form has since been franked by the second horse that day Joy's Gift who comfortably landed a competitive bumper at Down Royal at the end of August. Queen Deirdre represents powerful connections who know what it takes to win this race having landed it 12 months ago. Having been matched at 2.727/4 early doors we make Queen Deirdre a confident selection to make it two from two and recommend backing her at the 2.3811/8 currently available.
