Follow The Money: A Beautiful bet at The Curragh

Can Ryan Moore get us off to a winning start?

Today's Follow The Money comes from the meetings at the Curragh, Cartmel and Uttoxeter.

"Our Chief has proven easy to back this morning drifting from 3.19 out to 3.9. He found little off the bridle here 11 days ago over 2m 7f when finishing fourth, and in such a competitive field we feel at least one will be too good for him."


Lay Our Chief at 3.9 in the 17:45 at Uttoxeter

We head to the Curragh for today's first positive which runs in the 15:55 Grp 3 over 6f. Selection Most Beautiful has been well backed this morning from a high of 3.65 to the currently trading 2.767/4. An impressive winner at Navan last time out, the victory gained much greater significance when runner-up Waterloo Bridge went on to win the Norfolk Stakes. The positive indications from today's jockey Ryan Moore in his Betfair article is a further plus, and we feel a repeat of her Navan performance will be enough to take the spoils.

Our second positive comes from Cartmel in the 16:55 over 2m 1f. Selection Court Minstrel has seen heavy support this morning backed from 8.27/1 in to 5.49/2. Although failing to really leave a mark in Grade 1 company over the spring, the impressive hurdler should have the beating of today's rivals off a fair mark.

Finally to Uttoxeter for today's negative in the 17:45 2m 4f Hcap. Selection Our Chief has proven easy to back this morning drifting from 3.19 out to 3.9. He found little off the bridle here 11 days ago over 2m 7f when finishing fourth, and in such a competitive field we feel at least one will be too good for him.
