Recommended Bets

- Back Globalisation EW @ 7.413/2 in the 14:00 Doncaster
- Lay Broughtons Fancy @ 2.747/4 in the 15:25 Lingfield
- Back Bags Groove @ 2.89/5 in the 16:20 Huntingdon

We open at Doncaster in their 3m Handicap Chase at 14:00 where Barry Geraghty takes the mount on the Rebecca Curtis trained, Globalisation. He blundered early on in his last start at Newbury and was pulled up to spare him a hard race, however previous to this he made an eye catching start to his chasing career with a win at Ffos Las over 2m3f. If he runs anywhere near this from he should be in contention today. The step up to 3 miles will suit and although he has strengthened in the market from 11.521/2 in to 7.413/2 he is still a decent each way price.

With not many short price runners drifting in the morning markets we look to the polytrack at Lingfield for our lay of the day. The 7f Claiming Sakes at 15:25 seems to have given us an interesting match bet between Ralph Beckett's gelding, Custard The Dragon and the David Evan trained filly, Broughtons Fancy. However the former is very strong in the market having over 80% of the money traded on it to date. This seems to indicate that Broughtons Fancy who was below par on her latest outing at Wolverhampton in December will not be breaking her 10-race maiden tag today and with her price drifting from a low of 2.11 out to 2.747/4 she is still a reasonable price to lay.

Finally to Huntingdon for the Bumper at 16:20 where Harry Fry trains the stand out horse in the race, Bags Groove. He showed strong form on his debut at Ascot in November with the front two pulling clear and he was only headed in the last 100 yards by Criq Rock who himself is looking a very smart prospect. Bags Groove has strengthened in the market from 3.39/4 in to 2.89/5 and we are confident that Fry's only runner at Huntingdon today can make the 179 mile trip from Dorset worthwhile.
