Follow The Money: Lily is a lay but Bob must be backed

Will you follow the FTM advice today?

Today's selections run at Lingfield, Newcastle and Nottingham.

"Winter Spice seems to like a sound surface, which Nottingham should provide, and has been a steady order in the 17:05 market, 6.05/1 in to 4.57/2. Being younger than most of the opposition entitles him to a good weight allowance, too."


Back Winter Spice @ 4.57/2 in the 17:05 at Nottingham  

Spider Lily must be opposed in the 15:20 Lingfield. She has won her last three races but has rocketed up the weights as a consequence, leaving the first of her recent victims, Johnny Splash re-opposing with a significant weight pull today. The market agrees, and even at her current 4.03/1 from 2.56/4 , Spider Lily is today's designated lay. Incidentally, these two are matched in the AvB market and it looks a "no-brainer". 

Market followers will remember Bob from the "legends" race for old jockeys, three weeks ago at the St Leger meeting. Although Dale Gibson won by just a head at the finish, he left the impression that he was always confident of landing the gamble that day. He has gone up just 1lb for that and should still be well handicapped. Although ground, trip, and jockey are different today, the money is down again 7.1 in to 4.57/2 and we're taking Bob to refill the coffers for ultra-shrewd connections.

Winter Spice is still a maiden but the grey-gelding has been catching the eye lately as he steps up in distance; third last time at Bath behind firm-ground specialist Sunny Future. He seems to like a sound surface himself, which Nottingham should provide, and has been a steady order in the 17:05 market, 6.05/1 in to 4.57/2. Being younger than most of the opposition entitles him to a good weight allowance, too.
