Today's Follow The Money comes from meetings at Musselburgh and Lingfield.

"Under Jack Garritty's capable hands, James Given's runner is a confident selection to make light work of a reduced field of four."

Back La Fritillaire @ 2.447/5 in the 15:30 at Musselburgh

Back Rashfords Double each-way @ 10.09/1 in the 14:00 at Musselburgh
Lay Anonymous John @ 2.01/1 in the 15:10 at Lingfield

Today's each-way selection comes from Musselburgh where Rashford's Double goes in the opening EBF Maiden Stakes at 14:00. Having been as high as 18.017/1 this morning it now trades at as low as 10.09/1. This Zoffany colt improved from its debut seventh to finish fourth at Epsom last month and with a similar level of improvement has realistic ambitions of going close here. While up against a pair of smart Mark Johnston two-year-olds, any horse from Richard Fahey's stable deserves the utmost respect at the moment, having sent out 11 winners in the last two weeks.

Our lay selection is Anonymous John in the 15:10 at Lingfield. Though backed in from 2.89/5 to 2.01/1 the selection is simply unbackable at these odds. A quick look through this four-year-old's form figures suggests the gelding cannot be relied upon, having not got its head in front in the best part of a year does not instill confidence. His last three runs at Lingfield have resulted in sixth-, seventh- and eighth-place finishes and while the booking of Adam Kirby is a plus, there are more than enough reasons to oppose this David Evans inmate.

The day's win selection also comes from Musselburgh where La Fritillaire bids to follow up his two recent wins in the Gloria Roche Handicap due off at 15:30. Having shortened from a price of 2.789/5 the selection currently trades at 2.447/5. The 6lb penalty she carries for his Ripon success last week may not prove to be enough to prevent the hat-trick. Winning distances of a head in both recent victories suggests this filly gives her all and seems to relish a two mile trip. Under Jack Garritty's capable hands, James Given's runner is a confident selection to make light work of a reduced field of four.
