Today's movers come from the meetings at Newcastle and Newmarket.

"Trained by Malcolm Saunders, this consistent filly always runs her race having been placed in six of her last eight starts though without a win since July 2015. Her last run gave the impression she is ready to win again very soon as she was forced wide to switch when in a challenging position."

Back Pixeleen @ 5.24/1 in the 17:20 at Newmarket

Back Bogardus Each Way @ 5.95/1 in the 14:55 at Newcastle

We start the day at Newcastle where we find our lay of the day in the 14:20 6f Novice Stakes. Hyperfocus is the horse we are opposing after an alarming drift 1.865/6 out to 2.6213/8. This two-year-old colt is only having his third start, he came good on debut to win at Leicester by an impressive five lengths, but failed to progress as expected when he was thrown straight into a listed race second time out at Epsom. Hugo Palmer is probably expecting a win now in calmer waters but punters have other ideas as the Richard Fahey newcomer has been backed off the boards (7.06/1 into 3.1511/5) and may soon be favourite with this sort of gamble we are taking on the once short price favourite Hyperfocus.

Staying at Newcastle for our each-way selection in the 14:55 1m2f Handicap where Bogardus has been very well supported 8.415/2 into 5.95/1. Patrick Holmes' five-year old has been shaping well on the all-weather recently. Even though his last win was in December at Kempton he has steadily improved and looks to be well in with the handicap. The Danger could be Briardale who is coming back off a recent win where he pulled off a career best.

Finally it's over to Newmarket for their lucky last, a 6f Handicap at 17:20, where Pixeleen has received strong support from 7.06/1 in to 5.24/1. Trained by Malcolm Saunders, this consistent filly always runs her race having been placed in six of her last eight starts though without a win since July 2015. Her last run gave the impression she is ready to win again very soon as she was forced wide to switch when in a challenging position.
