Today's Follow The Money movers come from the meetings at Brighton and Nottingham.
The gamble on Toga Tiger in Brighton's 16:30 can't be ignored, having moved from highs of around 8.07/1 in to 3.3512/5. You'd have to go back to 2010 for the selection's last win, and he's changed hands a couple of times since then too. However, our colleagues at Timeform have commented that he has been given a big chance by the assessor, and the weight of money suggests that today may be the day for win number three.
While you could hardly say today's action is top class, it is still certainly very competitive. As such, it is a bit of a struggle for us to find a decent short priced lay bet. Undeterred by this, the tentative call comes in the 16:45 at Nottingham in the shape of Yanabeeaa. He has drifted from early lows of around 2.506/4 out to 3.505/2. While the non-runner and subsequent reduction factor has almost certainly played a part in that, we have still seen solid and sustained support for Westwiththenight. At the prices it does look like a two horse race, but punters, and therefore we, have decided to take on Yanabeea and the lay is the close call.
All the action is taking place in the later of the afternoon races today it seems, and we go back to Brighton and the 17:30 for our next positive move. Whatsofunny has shortened dramatically in the betting, moving from 8.07/1 in to 3.4012/5. Roger Varian's charge seemed not to like the soft going in her last race at Doncaster last month, so today's good to firm should be more suitable. While she hasn't yet got her head in front in three starts, she has showed a fair amount of promise, and is taken to do the business today now handicapping.
