Lay Yourholidayisover @ 2.486/4 in the 14:10 at Plumpton

Back Fujin each way @ 5.79/2 in the 15:05 at Southwell

We start today with our lay selection in the 14:10 at Plumpton, a 2m Handicap chase. The Tom Gretton-trained Yourholidayisover has been in good form this season, running well without winning until last time out. The ten year old has been creeping up the weights ever so slightly but the handicapper may appear to have the measure of him today, raising him 8lbs for winning what looked a poor race last time, may prove too much. The layers seem to be of similar opinion in a market which has seen a steady drift, from 2.1211/10 out to 2.486/4. We see this continuing and recommend laying Yourholidayisover at his current trading price.

Our back selection comes in the 14:45 Plumpton, a 2m4f Novice Hurdle. The Philip Hobbs-trained Jerrysback makes his rules debut after making a strong impression on the Irish point-to-point scene. The son of Jeremy won his last start in impressive fashion under the hands of Derek O'Connor and is interesting to note that Barry Geraghty has made the trip to the Sussex racetrack for only this ride. The money has come for the five year old being backed early doors from 2.1411/10 in to 1.845/6. A confident selection here from our Follow the Money team who recommend backing him.

Our final selection sees us move to Southwell for the 15:05, a 6f Handicap. The Shaun Harris-trained Fujin looks to have come back to himself in the last two weeks with back-to-back wins at Chelmsford and Lingfield. Punters are of a belief that he can land the hat-trick today which has seen him backed in from 7.87/1 in to 5.39/2. While he does run under a penalty today and has been risen 10lbs for his last two efforts, we still feel there is further improvement and backers should take advantage of his rude health. In an open race with the two market principles weak this looks an each-way bet to nothing at 5.79/2.
