It's two selections from Wetherby and one from the all-weather at Southwell for the Follow The Money team on Tuesday afternoon...
We begin the day at Wetherby in the 13:10 2m Juvenile Hurdle where For Goodness Sake has been on the drift from 2.568/5 out to 3.39/4. This well named horse for the Hippy Hippy Shake Partnership finished a reasonable second on her hurdling debut at Warwick seven weeks ago but did jump right when coming under pressure which has also happened in her flat career. With the support for Pinkie Brown in the race in from 3.02/1 to 1.981/1, which has also ran in a Grade Two race in Auteuil, we feel For Goodness Sake may have to wait to show us her best moves and is therefore today's lay of the day.
For our first positive of the day we move codes and look at Southwell and the 13:30 1m Maiden Handicap where we have seen good support for Rubis, being backed in from an early price of 2.8415/8 in to her current price of 2.1411/10. On her handicap debut last time out at Kempton, and from an unfavourable draw Rubis finished an eye catching fourth and had one of her rivals (Adventure Zone) well behind her that day. With what is a very weak race we feel Rubis has the perfect opportunity to open her account today and boost our coffers.
For our each-way selection we move back to Wetherby and the 14:50 3m Handicap Hurdle where Rocky Stone has been supported in from 7.413/2 in to 6.05/1. When Donald McCain and Noel Fehily team up at Wetherby they have a 60% strike rate and we are hoping Rocky Stone will improve that strike rate today. Both his wins have come in testing conditions over distances of 2m3f and 3m1f so today's trip and going shouldn't be a concern. The only other horse with any support for it is Notonebuttwo 16.015/1 in to 9.617/2 but his for figures of late are the kind of tiles I get at scrabble so we are confident that our selection Rocky Stone will at the very least run in to a place.
Lay For Goodness Sake @ 3.39/4 in the 13:10 Wetherby
Back Rubis @ 2.1411/10 in the 13:30 Southwell
Back Rocky Stone each way @ 6.05/1 in the14:50 Wetherby
