Follow The Money: Punters counting on Number to land the spoils at Southwell

Today's first two bets go at Taunton

Today's Follow the Money comes from Taunton and Southwell.

"Today's testing conditions should not be an issue and as this is only Midnight Request's sixth start he remains unexposed and the market supports suggests he can continue the good form of the stable."

Back Midnight Request @ 3.185/40 in the 15:40 at Taunton

We start at Taunton where Moujik Borget has drifted from 3.65 out to 4.47/2 in betting on the 14:40. This is an open looking handicap and the market is against the Venetia Williams-trained runner. He made a winning return at Haydock back in November after being off the track since finishing last in the 2012 Fred Winter. His latest effort came at Kempton a couple of weeks ago but he again ran poorly and finished a well-beaten last. The stable do have a good strike rate at this track, but the overall form of today's runner means we are happy to take him on at short prices. 

Our next selection also runs at Taunton and in the 15:40 where Midnight Request has been supported from 4.84/1 in to 3.185/40. The Tom Symonds-trained runner is lightly raced having only made his racecourse debut in October. His best effort so far came in Handicap Company at Leicester last week where he finished runner-up. Midnight Request made a slight error three out but still finished 19 lengths clear of the rest of the field. The ground that day was heavy, so today's testing conditions should not be an issue and as this is only his sixth start he remains unexposed and the market supports suggests he can continue the good form of the stable.

Today's final pick is at Southwell where Victorian Number has been backed from 6.411/2 in to 3.9 in the 15:50. Trained by George Baker, Victorian Number has some good form on the all-weather having won three times on the surface in 2013. He put in a decent effort at this course earlier this month when finishing runner-up to Basingstoke who has gone on to win since, he stayed on well that day and he looks to have a strong chance today racing off the same mark.
