Follow The Money: Let's get Lucky with a Lady at Kempton

They're over the obstacles at Kempton today

Today's Follow The Money movers come from the meetings at Hexham and Kempton.

"After two years off the track, Tekthelot doesn't have many miles on the clock for his age, handles any ground and although bidding to defy a penalty the manner of his latest success suggests there is more to come."

Back Tekthelot at 5.39/2 in the 15:10 at Hexham

We start with Hexham's 3m Maiden Hurdle at 14:00 in which Alto Des Mottes has wandered out in the betting to a price of 3.814/5 from 2.962/1. The five-year-old gelding, now with Henry Hogarth, had some fair form earlier in the season when with Paul Nicholls, but that was all around 2m and this step up in distance on quick ground is far from guaranteed to bring out the best in him. Sent off a short-priced favourite over 2m5f at Market Rasen a week ago he failed to make the frame and could be vulnerable again today, with Definite Soldier looking a big danger.

Later on the Hexham card Tekthelot has been strongly supported for the 2m4f Handicap Hurdle at 15:10, now trading at 5.39/2 he was previously available at 7.413/2. Trainer Keith Revely seems to bring out the best in this nine-year-old, as shown by his win last time at Carlisle and there may be more to come. After two years off the track, he doesn't have many miles on the clock for his age, handles any ground and although bidding to defy a penalty the manner of his latest success suggests there is more to come.

Finally to Kempton where One Lucky Lady has been the one for money, in to [3.6 ]from 4.57/2, in the 2m5f Handicap Hurdle at 16:30. Nicky Henderson's mare has not shown a great deal since winning a maiden chase back in September. However she has been dropped 9lbs since disappointing at Ascot in January and this looks a feasible opportunity for the seven-year-old. Some encouragement can be taken from her last effort at Ludlow when staying on stoutly for third over an inadequate 2m trip. This return to further on a sound surface will suit and she can make her presence felt here against an ordinary-looking field.
