The markets have been reviewed, and today's three Follow The Money selections come from the meetings at Lingfield and Wetherby...
Our lay of the day runs in the 14:20 at Wetherby. It's hard to look past the Nicky Henderson hot pot in this race, which is why we see Flute Bowl drifting from a low of 3.3512/5 out to 4.67/2. Gary Moore's 4yo gelding was quite impressive on his hurdling debut, however that was in Juvenile company and on dead ground. He is up against older and more experienced horses today and with the ground riding a bit quicker, we can see why punters are keen to take him on, even with his age allowance.
We switch to the all-weather for our first positive, Jeremy Noseda's The Best Doctor is being backed off the boards in the 15:00 at Lingfield, matched as high as 3.96, smashed in to 2.265/4. Not seen since October where he was fourth of 12 in a hot maiden over the extended mile at Windsor, a race which has thrown up multiple winners. He's making his handicap debut today and with the trainer's unbelievable strike this year it's no surprise he's probably the best backed horse of the day.
We stay at Lingfield for the other back of the day. Lady Ibrox has been well supported in the 5f Handicap at 16:40. The Alan Brown Filly has been backed early, trading as high as 19.018/1 and is now down to 11.010/1. She blew hot and cold last season, the pick of her form was a close up fourth to Moviesta at York. She has never raced on the all-weather, so the surface is an unknown, however her U.S. breeding would indicate this shouldn't be a problem. The filly performed well at Chester, so the hustle and bustle of a tight track shouldn't pose any significant problems.
