Today's Follow the Money movers come from the meetings at Cartmel, Redcar and Leicester
"Neptune Equester's stable is bang in form and the selection, with less miles on the clock than most 10-year-olds, definitely has the ability to go close."
There have been a few market moves in the Grand Veterans' Handicap Chase at Cartmel today (15:40), but the one that takes our eye is on Neptune Equester. The dramatic 25.024/1 in to 10.09/1 has transformed the Brian Ellison inmate from no-hoper to live contender as far as the market is concerned. The stable is bang in form and the selection, with less miles on the clock than most 10-year-olds, definitely has the ability to go close.
Brasingaman Eric only missed out by a head (with 10 lengths back to the third) when running over the same distance two starts back. Swapping Musselburgh for Redcar today, the six-year-old looks sure to put in a bold bid to go one better with market confidence, in from 7.16 to 4.67/2, and conditions, on his side.
Playbill, a daughter of Medicean Paper running in the 17:10 at Leicester, has been on the slide this morning settling at 5.24/1 after an initial 3.55/2 was matched. The Stoute/Moore combination behind this runner looks initially promising, but further inspection reveals strong opposition in the form of Fersah, and a weak looking make-up to the selection's previous outing, a class six auction maiden on the all-weather. At roughly 4-1 she's worth taking on.
