Today's Follow The Money comes from this afternoon's meetings at Leopardstown, Newbury and Doncaster.
"The Grey Taylor hasn't really done too much wrong since winning in October, but he finds himself in an extremely competitive contest today with plenty of others making appealing claims."
Our first selection of the day comes from Leopardstown where Court Frontier has been steadily backed this morning in betting on the 12:10 2m5f Handicap Chase, moving in from 4.67/2 in to 2.9015/8. A dual points winner who easily landed a hunters chase at Downpatrick in March before slightly underperforming in a better contest at Fairyhouse in April. However, he improved massively when bolting up and winning a handicap hurdle on his reappearance at Fairyhouse 41 days ago. He looked suited to the emphasis on stamina and should maintain his progression today whilst making his handicap chase debut.
Our each-way selection comes from Newbury in the 12:50 2m6f Nov Hcap Chs where Simply The West has been backed from 15.014/1 in to 9.417/2. He was very competitive in his first two chase efforts and although he was disappointing at Ludlow he was back at a good level when third at Taunton to market rival Sandy Beach earlier this month. However, he is 13lbs better off for today's meeting and should enjoy the soft ground.
Finally, our lay comes from Doncaster in the 13:10 2m Nov Hcap Chs where The Grey Taylor has seen some negative market movement this morning, drifting form 3.052/1 out to 3.3512/5. He is a useful dual hurdles winner who opened his chasing account at the second attempt at Carlisle in October. He hasn't really done too much wrong since, but he finds himself in an extremely competitive contest today with plenty of others making appealing claims. Katachenko has been progressing nicely and Long Lunch should be very dangerous dropping back in trip to two miles. Chase debutant Baltimore Rock is another to keep an eye on.
