Today's FTM movers come from the meetings at Epsom and Ripon...
"With Kieren Fallon booked and the longer trip may be just the tonic to bring about the required improvement."
Starting at Ripon in the 14:00 selling stakes over 1m 2f, Future Wonder has drifted out to 3.55/2 from 2.727/4. The three-year-old filly ran badly last time out, only managing a disappointing fourth from five runners when starting as an even-money favourite at Yarmouth in another seller. It remains to be seen whether new trainer Brian Ellison can bring about the necessary improvement; admittedly she did win at Leicester by 3 ½ lengths the time before, so clearly is inconsistent and the punters may have looked elsewhere. She will need to improve significantly on her last race in order to win today.
Over to Epsom in the 14:15 nursery over 7f, Romanoff has been backed in to 6.05/1 from 10.09/1. The two-year-old colt hasn't shown much so far, finishing tenth in three maiden races, two at Newmarket and while his form does not look very good, those were much classier races, and with Kieren Fallon booked and the longer trip may be just the tonic to bring about the required improvement.
Finally staying at Epsom in the 17:00 Handicap over 1m 2f, Debating Society has been well supported in to 4.84/1 from 6.05. He has been dropped 3lb since his last race when he finished sixth at Sandown starting as a 2/1 favourite. That was on soft ground and he tends to run better on good ground, which is forecast for today. Also the price move may be influenced by having a renowned trainer in Sir Michael Stoute.
