Today's Follow The Money comes from Newton Abbot, the Curragh and Stratford.
"Fourth in the Coronation Stakes exactly a month ago, the step up in trip should be ideal and the market suggests My Titania is certainly the one to beat today."
Our first positive is Ittirad, ridden by Jack Quinlan in the 15:20 at Newton Abbot. John Ferguson's six-year-old has been steadily backed this morning, in from a high of 3.86 to a current price of 3.613/5. Back to winning ways in a handicap here only last week, this gelding should take some beating today regardless of the penalty in the process gaining revenge over Street Entertainer who got the better of him at Fontwell in May. David Pipe's 7yo will prove a stern test, as will the likes of Royale's Charter and Maxi Chop, but after looking an improver last week in cheekpieces, we are confident Ittirad can follow up that victory with another one this afternoon.
It's over to the Curragh for our second positive, which runs in the Group 2 race at 15:45. My Titania has been heavily supported, in to a current price of 2.1211/10 from a morning high of 2.89/5. Fourth in the Coronation Stakes exactly a month ago, the step up in trip should be ideal and the market suggests she is certainly the one to beat today. It's difficult to make a case for anyone other than John's Oxx's 3yo, but Mango Diva could be the danger after her respectable fifth in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Epsom at the beginning of June. We confidently recommend backing My Titania to succeed in this one.
Our lay comes from Stratford this afternoon. Miss Mobot runs in the 17:30 and has been easy to back all morning, out to a current price of 2.466/4 from a morning low of 2.245/4. You could argue that it's too easy to make a case for this filly after winning her debut against males at Ffos Las back in May. Of the opposition Jonjo O'Neill's newcomer, Petrovic, must be respected with record breaker AP McCoy on board while point winner Blurred Lines is another danger from another top yard and, with all these factors to consider, we recommend taking on Miss Mobot this afternoon and laying her at a current price of 2.466/4.
Back Ittirad @ 3.613/5 in the 15:20 at Newton Abbot
Back My Titania @ 2.1211/10 in the 15:45 at the Curragh
Lay Miss Mobot @ 2.466/4 in the 17:30 at Stratford
