Follow The Money: We prescribe a bet on the Doctor at Cartmel

Will you back Flying Doctor at Cartmel?

Today's Follow the Money comes from Cartmel, York and the Curragh.

"Questions have been asked of Flying doctor since returning from a winter break, but write him off at your peril - this course and distance winner has slipped to an eye-catching mark of 90."

Back Flying Doctor @ 4.03/1 15:05 Cartmel 

We begin at Cartmel where the impressive Flying Doctor has been very well supported in to 4.03/1 from an earlier price of 9.28/1 in the 15:05. Trainer Alistair Whillans has high hopes this afternoon after previously seeing his 10-year-old win here exactly a year ago, taking his tally of wins at Cartmel to three. Questions have been asked of Flying doctor since returning from a winter break, but write him off at your peril - this course and distance winner has slipped to an eye-catching mark of 90. 

Next up is 15:50 at York. Tiger Cliff has received some interesting backing this morning, moving in to 5.69/2 from 9.42. After winning over the same distance back in May (beating De Rigueur) on his first run since being gelded, continued support has arrived for Lady Cecil's 4 year old. Although some will argue that it will be a tougher test today up another 4lbs and with a wide draw, respect has to be shown, especially after an excellent second in the Ascot Stakes recently. After passing eleven horses on the straight last time out, Tiger Cliff likes to catch them on the line.

We conclude today's column in Ireland with today's lay, which can be found in the 14:35 at Curragh where  Expedition has progressively drifted from 3.211/5 out to 4.67/2. Following his impressive debut win in a 7f maiden at Limerick, you could argue that it's a strange decision by Aidan O'Brien to bring his 2yo back to a 5f trip here at the Curragh. Headgear could well prove to be a concern and Expedition certainly doesn't strike you as a sprinter, thus the minimum trip could be his downfall today.
