Today's Follow the Money movers come from the meetings at Epsom and Perth...
"Mark Johnston’s colt Mister Impatience has been solidly backed from 3.02/1 into 2.427/5."
Firstly to Perth for today's negative, where in the 15:00, a 2 mile 4 furlong Maiden Hurdle Donald McCain's Valleyofmilan has been easy to back moving out from 2.0421/20 to a current 2.747/4. The 6 year old gelding has been knocking on the door of late when it comes to breaking the maiden status tag however the lack of market confidence appears to suggest that he doesn't have the beating of his main rival today.
Now to Epsom and the 15:20, a 1 mile 2 furlong Conditions Race which has the added incentive (for those not gelded) of win and you're in this years Derby. Mark Johnston's colt Mister Impatience has been solidly backed from 3.02/1 into 2.427/5. Having romped home last month at Doncaster impressively the trainer believes he will have improved from that run and now appears to be seriously considering his Derby chances.
Finally moving back to Scotland and the 17:35, a 3 mile Handicap Chase where Pigeon Island has seen a lot of support moving from 10.519/2 into 5.69/2. Nigel Twiston-Davies 10 year old veteran runs of top weight but has shown a recent return to form winning at Ascot 17 days ago which may account for the almost halving in price. With the added factor of both trainer and jockey having decent strike rates at the track the market move could point to a fourth win over the larger obstacles.
