Some quality racing on Sunday afternoon and today's Follow The Money selections come from Kelso and Fairyhouse...
We kick things off with our lay bet of the day coming in the 12:50 Novice Chase at Kelso. The horse we're taking on here is the Paul Nicholls' trained former Cheltenham Festival winner Aux Ptits Soins. The horse has undoubted talent but having only been seen once last season and having been well beaten in on his chasing debut at long odds-on last month it would suggest that he is not the easiest horse to train. Friendless in the market all morning having drifted from 1.774/5 out to his current price of 2.0811/10 we feel that today might not be his day and recommend laying him at current prices.
Our each-way bet comes in the 14:10 2m Handicap Hurdle at Fairyhouse. Gordon Elliot has the top two in the market in the shape of Campeador and Mick Jazz. The former is the current favourite across the boards but it is Mick Jazz who has seen the most money on the exchange this morning having been backed from [6.89 ]into his current price of 5.85/1. Having switched to Elliott's yard from Harry Fry early this year this horse made a winning start for connections when landing a modest maiden hurdle at Clonmel in October. He stepped up on that performance last month when a good second in a Grade 3 hurdle at Navan. Up 5lbs for that performance and with more improvement likely we feel his current mark of 133 is very workable and recommend backing him today at 5.85/1.
Our win bet of the day comes the grade one Drinmore Chase at 14:40 Fairyhouse. We're siding with another of Gordon Elliott's who we're hoping will carry his red hot form from Navan last week through to Fairyhouse today. The horse we're backing here is the Gigginstowns former useful hurdler A Toi Phil. Having landed a Grade 2 chase at Punchestown last month in impressive style forging clear of some talented horses we feel that form is the best on display here. Open to more improvement today and solid in the market we recommend backing him at the current price of 3.8514/5.
