Today's Follow The Money selections come from the after meetings at Exeter and Wolverhampton...
Starting off in the first at Wolverhampton, the 13:10, where we look to back the well supported Mukaynis who has been backed in from 8.17 to 3.3512/5. The move is no doubt a mixture of support as well as significant withdrawals in the field but none the less it is still an eye-catching move. Last seen 12 days ago when finishing a respectable fourth in a competitive field over 5f at Lingfield the horse stayed on well in the final furlong so the step up to 7f today should suit. Kevin Ryan's four-year-old's last victory came over this surface when successful back in November and connections must be confident of another strong showing.
The 13:50 at Exeter is our next port of call where we look to lay Magheral Express, who has drifted from an early 2.829/5 out to 4.03/1. This one will look to get off the mark over hurdles third time around with the horse improving after each run. Question marks have to be raised though, the ground being one of them with the horse seeming to prefer better ground, and although the horse has put in a couple of improving efforts he still has only finished midfield without challenging the subsequent winners. The money has come for market rival Mountain Of Mourne who has halved in price, and with all questions raised, we're happy to take on Magheral Express.
Over to the 15:10 at Wolverhampton for our final back, Ferryview Place, who has been backed down from 7.87/1 in to 4.94/1. Perhaps a little unfortunate last time out after being hampered in the closing stages of the race and as a result finishing down the field here just over a fortnight ago. Although this gelding's last success came back in June he has shown some positive form and judging by how he was going in his last race he should put in a prominent display today, and as there still looks to be a bit of value to be had, the back is the call.
