Follow The Money: Two huge gambles at Newmarket and a Haydock lay

Will those gambles produce winners?

Today's Follow The Money movers run at the Newmarket and Haydock meetings

"Despite all Cape Classic's wins being at shorter distances, punters do not seem worried and will be hoping to see that electric turn of foot they witnessed at Doncaster."

Back Cape Classic @ 4.67/2 16:50 Newmarket

We start with today's lay, up at Haydock in the 14:05, where the Tom Dascombe-trained filly Northern Star has drifted from 2.829/5 out to 3.3512/5. The daughter of Montjeu has found a tricky race as she attempts to shed her maiden tag with the Charlie Hills-trained Society Pearl looks her most likely danger. Her recent effort in a listed race in France is the best form on offer, but there are plenty of likely improvers she will have to fend off and punters feel today will not be her day.

We go to the 16:50 at Newmarket for our first positive where we have seen a huge gamble on the William Haggas-trained Cape Classic which has forced his price in to 4.67/2 from 8.88/1. This son of Cape Cross looks one of the most progressive horses of the season, winning with enough in hand last time out to suggest an 8lb rise would not prevent another victory. Despite all his wins being at shorter distances, punters do not seem worried and will be hoping to see that electric turn of foot they witnessed at Doncaster.

Our final positive is Sun Central in the 17:25 at Newmarket. Also trained by Haggas this son of Galileo has attracted huge amounts of money that has seen his price fall from 11.010/1 in to 7.06/1. The form of his Ascot victory and his Sandown second has stood up well and the punters feel Sun Cerntral has scope for further improvement and can make a swift return to the winners' enclosure. The trip and ground conditions offer no concerns and the jockey booking of the talented Joseph O'Brien has encouraged the punters to really get stuck in to this one.
