Today's Follow The money selections come from Lingfield and Ayr.
"Punters believe Forest Des Aigles is well handicapped on his old Gallic form today and has been backed accordingly, moving from 8.27/1 into 5.14/1."
We begin with our lay, Naseem, which runs in the 11:50 1m 2f Maiden Stakes at Lingfield. Ridden by Nicky Mackey, this unraced son of Sea The Stars has to beat some race fit opponents including a stablemate, while Lingfield's tricky downhill final bend has caught out many talented individuals first time out in the past. Punters have no faith today, with this two-year-old gelding drifting from 2.56/4 out to 3.55/2. We feel this is one to take on today.
Our back bet is Progress Drive which runs in the 12:10 2m 4f Novices' Hurdle at Ayr. This Nicky Richards trained runner has had all three of his lifetime runs at this Scottish track including an impressive win in a bumper in February. Punters expect the five-year-old gelding to break his duck over hurdles in this weak race on his way to better things, having been backed from 2.111/10 into 1.75/7.
Our each-way bet is Forest Des Aigles, which runs in the 13:45 2m 2f Handicap Chase at Ayr. This son of Balko had good form in France for Charente Maritime-based trainer Guillaume Macaire last year. Now transferred to Lucinda Russell's yard punters believe he is well handicapped on his old Gallic form today and has been backed accordingly, moving from 8.27/1 into 5.14/1.
Lay Naseem @ 3.55/2 in the 11.50 at Lingfield
Back Progress Drive @ 1.75/7 in the 12:10 at Ayr
Back Forest Des Aigles Each Way @ 5.14/1 in the 13:45 at Ayr
