Today's movers come from the meetings at Leicester, Southwell and Wetherby...
"Today's race sees a drop back to 6f and connections are trying a visor for the first time, which should give Go Far a great chance at gaining his first success with Robert Winston getting the leg up."
We start the day with the lay in the 12.35 2m Handicap Chase at Leicester, where there has been a noticeable drift on Christopher Wren from a low of 2.3811/8 out to 4.1. Nick Gifford's runner has notched up 7 wins in his career, the most recent being on the first of this month over today's course and distance on good to firm ground. However, that wasn't a tough race and with a hike in the weights of 8lb combined with today's soft going, plus stronger opposition, the market suggests Christopher Wren is worth opposing.
Off to Southwell for our first positive where we find a strong move for Go Far, in to 2.9215/8 from a high of 3.7511/4, in the 13.55 Maiden Stakes. This gelding by Dutch Art is yet to win a race but not through lack of trying, finishing in the frame 9 out of his 12 starts. The most recent being in a handicap over 7f at Kempton 8 days ago. Today's race sees a drop back to 6f and connections are trying a visor for the first time, which should give Go Far a great chance at gaining his first success with Robert Winston getting the leg up.
Ending the day at Wetherby with the second positive, in the 15.25, Burnthill is a lively outsider, in to 6.611/2 from a high of 14.013/1. This 8-year-old gelding has gained one success from 23 races under rules, which was back in March 2011, and although his form has been patchy since, a revival looked on the cards after his last start where he had received a drop in the handicap. This was a 6 length 4th in a 3m Handicap Hurdle last month, and being on the same mark today, with Gerald Quinn back on board, you can see why the money is coming for Claire Dyson's runner today.
