The markets have been reviewed and today's three Follow The Money selections come from the meetings at Ayr and Cartmel...
We start with today's lay bet. Urban Dusk follows up her Sligo win with a raid on the 14:45 Cartmel. This is a Mares' Handicap Hurdle, a good opportunity on the face of it but betting suggests her seven-pound penalty may just tell against her; she has struggled more times than not over this distance when rated in the 90s. Preference in the market is for Slipper Satin and Stand Clear and we're recommending a lay at 4.1 having seen her drift from 3.613/5.
On to Ayr for our back selections. The first is Apricot Sky in the 15:05, who has been supported from 10.09/1 to 7.413/2. Last seen finishing midfield in one of those big sprints at York, today's opposition looks slightly easier, the drop in distance should suit and with Anna Hesketh taking an additional seven-pounds off of the bottom-weight, hopefully Apricot Sky has something of an unfair advantage.
Yat Ding Yau has been the subject of a gamble from 11.010/1 in to 5.85/1 in the 16:10 Ayr. She's a winner in France and has run a couple of good races over here. Last run was modest but the race was deemed a tactical affair. With an extra furlong to cover, the betting suggests that Yat Ding Yau will show up well today.
Lay Urban dusk at 4.1 in the 14.45 at Cartmel
Back Apricot Sky at 7.413/2 in the 15:05 at Ayr
Back Yat Ding Yau at 5.85/1 in the 16:10 at Ayr
