Follow The Money: Hughes to lay down the Law at Sandown

Richard Hughes is aboard our two back bets today

Our three FTM selections run at Chester and Sandown...

"Law Enforcement is seeking a hat-trick of wins following an Epsom maiden win at the beginning of August then taking a decent looking nursery over a mile eight days ago."

Back Law Enforcement @ 2.01/1 Sandown 16:30

We start with the opening race at Chester, a 7f Maiden at 13:55 where we find today's negative in the shape of Becky Lou who has eased in the market out to 3.259/4 from 2.427/5. This Jeremy Noseda filly has the best bit of form on offer - if her sixth in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot is anything to go by - but she was turned over at odds-on last time out with one of today's rivals ahead. That was pretty disappointing, as was the way she hung that day, and although open to improvement the same could be said of a few of her rivals. Becky Lou looks one to take on today.

Next up, Sandown and the 7f Nursery at 16:30, where Law Enforcement has been solid at the top of the market shortening to 2.001/1 from 2.3411/8. This progressive Richard Hannon colt is seeking a hat-trick of wins following an Epsom maiden win at the beginning of August then taking a decent looking nursery over a mile eight days ago. This does not look as strong an event as that latest effort and with more improvement likely to come, he looks ready to win again.

We stay at Sandown for our final selection which comes in the last race on the card, the 1m2f Handicap at 17:35, where has been decent support for Hip Hip Hooray who has been backed in to 7.06/1 from 9.617/2. She has been running consistently well of late and deservedly got her head in front again last time out when winning over a mile at this track. Prior to that she ran well to finish second over today's trip behind a progressive sort. Richard Hughes keeps the ride and another bold show looks likely.
