Follow The Money: Valentine's day?

Will Frankie lose out to Silvestre again?

Today's movers run at Haydock and Newmarket

"The handicapper seems keen to give Dhaular Dhar one last glory-day with a constantly slipping mark and he is now two stone lower than in his heyday."

Back Dhaular Dhar @ 30.029/1 Newmarket 16:35

Once-raced Vicky Valentine has been well backed the in the 15:05 at Haydock today. The Rock of Gibraltar-filly hails from the Ayr Gold Cup-winning stable of Kevin Ryan so shouldn't lack for fitness. She's been matched solidly from 3.13 down to 2.6413/8 and has the form to beat a coupled of promising debutants.

Not many sliders on the markets today, but one runner that punters have taken an aversion to is Retrieve in the 16:00 at Newmarket. This ex-Australian five-year-old has been running consistently this season but after some initial money at 3.412/5 he's now available at 4.03/1. Frankie Dettori takes the ride and has an opportunity to show young gun Silvestre de Souza (on stable rival Songcraft) who's boss. Unfortunately, as has been that case all too often in recent times he might get collared by the younger man, so take heed of the market vibe and lay rather than back.

You could make ten selections in today's 'Silver Cambridgeshire' at Newmarket 16:35 and still not bag the winner but one runner that takes our eye is Dhaular Dhar. A grand old servant with nine wins under his belt, he needs one more to match his age (he's a ten-year-old). The handicapper seems keen to give him one last glory-day with a constantly slipping mark and he is now two stone lower than in his heyday. One of his nine successes did come less than a year ago so he still has it in him; conditions should be ideal and the market move of 44.043/1 to 30.029/1 is the icing on the cake.
