Taunton serves up a pair of bets for the FTM team today
Taunton serves up a pair of bets for the FTM team today

This afternoon's Follow The Money comes from the meetings at Taunton and Kelso.

"After showing promise back in January, winning on his first start for the yard, Guaracha seems to have regressed and has been soundly beaten in his last three starts."

Place lay Guaracha @ 3.8514/5 in the 15:10 at Taunton

Other Recommended Bets
Back Yorkist @ 5.49/2 in the 15:30 at Kelso
Back Bilbrook Blaze each way @ 6.05/1 in the 16:10 at Taunton

Firstly we head to Taunton for today's negative in the 15:10 Handicap Chase over 2m. Selection Guaracha has proved easy to back this morning, drifting from 13.5 out to 18.017/1. We'd never recommend a lay at that price but are happy to put him up as place lay, where he can be opposed at 3.8514/5. After showing promise back in January, winning on his first start for the yard, he seems to have regressed and has been soundly beaten in his last three starts. This looks to be a competitive race with the in-form Edeiff's Lad the likely winner, and we feel Guaracha can be backed to finish outside the places.

We head to Kelso for today's first positive in the 15:30 Handicap Chase over 2m 1f. Selection Yorkist has seen steadily supported this morning backed from a high of 7.613/2 in to the currently available 5.49/2. Second to today's rival Chestnut Ben at Musselburgh last month, he wasn't embarrassed in defeat and we fancy him to have his revenge now he is 7lbs better off once jockey claims have been considered.

Back to Taunton for our each-way bet of the day in the 16:10 Handicap Chase over 2m 2f. Selection Bilbrook Blaze has been well backed and is now trading at 6.05/1 from this morning's 7.87/1. Pulled up last time out and a faller the race before, he doesn't exactly jump off the page as a bet! However, he was shaping to be a decent horse when placing in a large field at Ascot last October and his team must be seeing something positive at home to continue running him over fences. With the market support we feel he is worth an each-way punt at the price.
