Follow The Money: Back Jack!

Can Harry Fry turn Hinton Indiana into a winner?

Today's Follow The Money comes from Musselburgh, Towcester and Plumpton.

"Karaka Jack seems to save all his best form for the first half of the flat campaign. He won twice from his first four runs at the start of last year’s flat season, with one of those wins over today’s distance of 1m1f."

Back Karaka Jack @ 6.25/1 in the 15:05 at Musselburgh

We start the day at Musselburgh where we are backing Karaka Jack who runs in the 15:05. Early money for the horse has seen the price fall from a high of 8.415/2 in to 6.25/1. Last seen at Doncaster a few weeks ago, when finishing midfield in a competitive field, he should be sharper today for that run. This horse seems to save all his best form for the first half of the flat campaign. He won twice from his first four runs at the start of last year's flat season, with one of those wins over today's distance of 1m1f. He's 2lb better off from his last success (May 2013) so it looks a smart option to back Karaka Jack today. 

We move over to the 15:15 at Towcester next where we will lay the drifting favourite Fine Moment. The layers are happy to take this one on as the horse has moved from a low of 2.21 to an available 2.6613/8. Victory here last time out, after some fairly modest bumper form, has come at a cost of an 8lb rise in the weights and there are others in this field that make more appeal on better marks. Most notable among today's opposition could be Etania, who looks relatively unexposed in this field and should give a better showing of herself running on good ground.

We finish with the 16:55 at Plumpton for our second back, our selection being the well-supported Hinton Indiana. Supported at a high of 5.85/1, he is now trading at 3.412/5. The support cannot be explained by his recent form as he has only managed to finish one of his last four runs, being pulled up on the other three, and his sole success come over a hurdles debut for Nicky Henderson three years ago. Harry Fry is the fourth trainer to attempt to get Hinton Indiana back to winning ways and his poor form has left him on a very tempting mark. The market move looks significant and off this mark the horse should have a big run today.
