Today's Follow The Money movers all come from the meeting at Southwell.
"Freshened up since August Powerful Wind has won at Southwell in the past and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back to form. In an open betting heat he makes plenty of each-way appeal and it would be disappointing were he not to make the frame."
We start with the 1m Handicap at 13:00 in which Tigers Home has been easy to back, wandering out to a price of 4.1 from 3.02/1. The selection has enjoyed her trips to Southwell of late, winning twice in the bottom grade, but was beaten off this mark when stepped up to Class 5 and the mare may find the going tougher still in this contest. Capelita and Noblest have been well supported and both those younger opponents look open to more improvement than the selection who is readily opposed.
In the 13:30 1m3f Claiming Stakes Brassbound has been all the rage, now trading at 2.56/4 from 4.3100/30. Michael Appleby's experienced campaigner, twice a winner at this venue, tends to save his best for the Fibresand surface and is taking a considerable drop in class. Two starts ago he was narrowly beaten here in a Class 4 Handicap so an event of this nature is well within his capabilities. Although this trip may be on the sharp side main market rival Masterful Act has it all to prove after running no kind of race at Wolverhampton following a long absence.
Finally to the 14:30 5f Handicap and Powerful Wind has seen sustained support from 12.011/1 in to 7.613/2 so rates a solid each-way option. The money behind this one looks significant as the gelding makes his debut today for the Charlie Wallis yard having lost his way over the summer. If the change of surroundings reinvigorate the selection then he has a good chance at the weights having won off 2lbs higher last year and 2lbs lower this year. Freshened up since August Powerful Wind has won at Southwell in the past and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back to form. In an open betting heat he makes plenty of each-way appeal and it would be disappointing were he not to make the frame.
