Follow The Money: Diamanda is an Ascot lay

It's day one of Ascot's Betfair Weekend

Today's Follow The Money movers come from the meetings at Ascot and Haydock.

With Diaminda’s yard in poor form at this track it may pay to take her on today.

Back Paddyfrommenlo @ 4.003/1 Haydock 14:00
Lay Diaminda @ 4.003/1 Ascot 14:10
Back Cruise Tothelimit @ 3.8514/5 Haydock 15:40


In the 14:00 at Haydock, Paddyfrommenlo has had steady support to move from 5.24/1 to 4.03/1. After progressing fairly well in maiden and claiming company he got his first win when making his handicap debut last time at Chester. Although he's under penalty for that win, he responded well to the increase in distance and will appreciate the cut in the ground. With further improvement not out of the question he should put on a bold show.

At Ascot, in the 14:10, Diaminda has been on the drift this morning from 2.829/5 out to 4.003/1. She made a promising debut at the end of last month, finishing second at Doncaster in a race which has seen the form work out well. However, the form of her main market rival, Pearl Bell, is even more impressive and explains the market confidence in her. With Diaminda's yard in poor form at this track it may pay to take her on today.

The final selection is in the 15:40 at Haydock where Cruise Tothelimit has been backed in to 3.8514/5 from 4.607/2. After switching to Ian Williams' yard this season he has performed creditably, culminating in a win and a 2nd place finish in his last two runs. His front running style should keep him out of trouble and with conditions likely to suit he should have every chance.
