This afternoon's Follow The Money comes from the meetings at Sandown and Beverley...
We start at Sandown for today's first positive in the 15:05 7f Novice Stakes. Latharnach has seen heavy support this morning backed from a high of 2.35/4 in to the current price of 1.875/6. This looks to be a two horse race, with market rival Time Test also boasting a course and distance victory. However, Latharnach's course form has been nicely franked by subsequent victories for the placed horses that day, Tom Hark and Elm Park and we favour him to come out on top. Although unlikely to make you rich at the price, we feel he still remains value in the small field.
Over to Beverley for today's negative in the 15:15 7f Maiden. Selection Multi Grain has drifted steadily today out to 3.613/5 from 2.982/1. In a weak field we feel fellow market principal Grand Proposal will likely prove too strong, having dropped back down into maiden company.
Back to Sandown for our final positive in the 15:40 1m Listed Race. Producer is a winner of a Group two race over this distance in Turkey and was an impressive second in a group three at Salisbury last month. Richard Hughes' mount has seen decent support this morning backed from 3.39/4 in to 2.526/4 and looks set to return to winning ways.
