It's a Kempton special from Follow The Money today, with two backs and a lay for Monday's action...

Recommended Bets
Lay Joules @ 3.39/4 in the 14:10 at Kempton
Back Barleysugar @ 3.613/5 in the 15:10 at Kempton
Back Percy Veer @ 7.413/2 in the 16:10 at Kempton

We start with our lay in the first race of the day at 14:10, where Joules has been unsteady in the market, drifting to 3.39/4 from an early 2.789/5. Charles Hills' two-year-old had a decent second last time out but there are many dangers in this field. Teresar was subject to a unjustified gamble last time out when finishing third at Lingfield on debut and it looks interesting to see a similar gamble formulating today. Other dangers include Just That Lord who should also improve on a course and distance third last time out while newcomer Hamish Mcgonagain is one to watch. Lay is the call.


Moving to the 15:10 for our first back, Barleysugar, who has been supported in from 5.24/1 in to 3.613/5. The selection made her racing debut last month when second over course and distance here at Kempton. Plenty of positives can be taken from that run as this filly was only beaten a length by a warm favourite that day and her main market rival here, Farandine, is weak in the market. Trainer Sir Michael Stoute has a respectable 17% strike rate here and Barleysugar looks sure to go well today.


The final back is Percy Veer, who is looking to get back to winning ways in the 16:10 having been backed from 10.519/2 in to 7.413/2. A solid effort last time saw this consistent performer finish third in a handicap here over the distance of two miles just over a fortnight ago. Today's drop in trip to 1m4f should be ideal, being a dual winner over this distance this season, and the selection ticks most of the boxes to be competitive in this one.
