It's one from Aintree, Leopardstown and Wincanton for the Follow The Money team on this busy Sunday afternoon of racing...
We start with the opening race from Aintree where past winners have included Cue Card and Wichita Lineman and our selection, The Last Euro has been backed from 5.04/1 in to 3.412/5. His only run so far came in an Irish point over 3m in April where he finished second and has since joined the Emma Lavelle yard. With so little form to judge some of these on, the market support in normally a good guide in these novice hurdle races and with the main rivals Champagne Present and Vintage Vinnie drifting all morning, the market suggests The Last Euro can make a winning debut over rules.
Today's negative comes from Leopardstown and in the 13:10 where Sir Isaac Newton has drifted from 1.645/8 out to 1.834/5. Aidan O'Brien trained horse is making his racecourse debut today, an intriguing race with the well bred Sir Isaac Newton already trading around 16 in our Derby antepost market. The trainer has an excellent record in this race, having won this seven times in the last ten years. With so many interesting newcomers in this race, we are tentatively taking on the favourite today.
Our final pick is in the 16:40 from Wincanton where Presenting Arms has been very well supported from 7.513/2 in to 4.216/5. The Harry Fry trained runner possibly surprised connections with his win in a jumpers bumper race at Kempton back in February as he was sent off with a BSP of 82. His two efforts since have been a little disappointing, although his form suggests he is better after a break and with a break of 194 days, today could be the right time to back him.
