Today's Follow The Money comes from Southwell and Wetherby...
We kick off proceedings with our lay of the day which runs on the artificial surface at Southwell and is due to post at 14:40. Native Prospect has solid form in the book having chased home the highly-touted Raheen House on his last start. Today's race looks like a competitive heat on paper with some of the top stable represented. Oisin Murphy's mount was last seen on a race track almost five months ago which may leave him vulnerable to some race-fit rivals today. The market vibes haven't been strong either so we recommended laying him at 2.3411/8 which is currently on offer, having been as short as 2.001/1 this morning.
We're staying on the sands of Southwell for our back bet of the day which goes in the 6f handicap, off at 15:10. Custard The Dragon is unbeaten at today's venue having recorded three victories from three starts at the course. He also produced a career best last time out when landing an 11 runner handicap over today's trip. Cheek pieces have be installed for the first time today and only up 4lbs from his last outing we're backing him to extend his unbeaten run at the Nottinghamshire track, and recommend taking the 3.55/2 that is still currently available.
Finally our each way play comes in the 2m3f Handicap Hurdle at Wetherby off at 16:00. We're taking a bit of a shot in the dark and hoping that Jennie Candlish's Aengus can rediscover some of his decent Irish form from a couple of seasons ago. Once a relatively high class hurdler for Noel Meade in Ireland two years ago Sean Quinlan's charge has been out of sorts since joining his new stable last September. However off a mark of 107 today if he was to rediscover some of his old form he could go close in what looks a weak affair, and we advise taking a chance each-way at 9.417/2 having been clipped in from 15.014/1 early doors.
Lay Native Prospect in the 14:40 at Southwell @ 2.3411/8
Back Custard The Dragon in 15:10 at Southwell @ 3.55/2
Back Aengus each-way in the 16:00 at Wetherby @ 9.417/2
