Today's Follow The Money bets run at Lingfield and Catterick.
"Compton Mill has steadily improved this year since winning over a mile at Chelmsford in April, showing promise when finishing a notable second over an extended mile at Leicester last month. That run suggested today's further trip of ten furlongs should suit."
First up we are going to Lingfield where we are opposing Ennaadd who has taken a walk out to 2.9215/8 from an early price of 2.546/4 in betting on the 13:30. This two-year-old colt will be making his polytrack debut having given a solid account of himself during his first run on the Windsor turf earlier this month. While his pedigree demands respect we feel the unknowns of a new surface plus an unfavourable wide draw give us reason to oppose Roger Varian's runner today. It is also heartening to see him up against the well-supported, John Gosden-trained Von Blucher who has Ryan Moore in the saddle.
Next we head to the 13:40 Handicap at Catterick for our first positive of the day. Straightothepoint is trading at 7.26/1 having started at an initial price of 13.012/1. This Bryan Smart-trained three-year-old put in a solid performance to take second two starts ago at Hamilton. He did follow that with a disappointing run at Haydock but the draw did him no favours that day and should have a better chance today. It is also worth noting that jockey Paul Mulrennan has an impressive course win percentage of 20% and in a fairly competitive race it is impossible to ignore such a strong move so we are recommending a back.
Finally we return to Lingfield where we are recommending a back of Compton Mill in the 15:10. It has been encouragingly backed in all morning and is now trading at 3.65 from an initial price of 5.24/1. This three-year-old gelding has steadily improved this year since winning over a mile at Chelmsford in April, showing promise when finishing a notable second over an extended mile at Leicester last month. That run suggested today's further trip of ten furlongs should suit and throw into the mix a notable drift on the main threat Naizah from 3.02/1 out to 5.04/1 and we are feeling good about our chances.
