Follow The Money: Bolero backed to be the punter's Buddy
Today's Follow The Money comes from Leicester and Ludlow...
Starting at Leicester and today`s negative on a morning where there has been an absence of any notable drifters Franklin Roosevelt now trades at [2.88] from an early [2.64] in the opening 14.00 contest. Backers haven't exactly fallen over themselves to get involved with David Pipe`s seven-year-old who finished tailed off on his chasing debut earlier this month. His previous hurdles form would give him a decent chance this afternoon however he cannot be backed with any confidence given the run last timeout so a lay looks the call.
Our next mover is in Ludlow`s 14.40 race where there has been some interest in Brockwell Park who has shortened in to [4.5] from [6.6]. This one ran an eye catching race at Huntingdon last time out under today`s pilot Nick Scholfield when making late headway to run on for a place. His mark allocated for this afternoon`s handicap debut appears very fair so looks of interest given the early money.
Back to Leicester for our final selection where Buddy Bolero has been a very solid market leader in the 15.30 race having been backed in to [2.0] from [2.74]. This is another one trained by David Pipe and comes here looking for a three-timer following wins at Folkestone over hurdles and Exeter on chase debut last time out. He is upped in trip on handicap debut today but that is unlikely to stop this Cheltenham Festival entry.
