Today's Follow The Money comes from Tuesday afternoon's meetings at Taunton and Wolverhampton...
Kicking off at Wolverhampton in the 14:20 7f Handicap where Scot Daddy has been backed all the way in from 18.017/1 to 8.415/2. This ten-race maiden seemed to find the longer trip of 1m1f here at Wolverhampton too far last time out and now drops back to a more favourable distance of 7f, with Dougie Costello taking the reins. This looks a weak race, with only the favourite Mr Christopher a potential concern, so we feel the David Dennis-trained gelding is an excellent each-way option at the prices.
Over to Taunton in the 15:05 2m Novice Handicap Chase where the Paul Nicholls-trained The Brock Again has been supported in from 3.3512/5 in to 2.6213/8. Nicholls is red hot at the moment with a 39% strike rate over the last 14 days and he has a 28% strike rate at Taunton. This is The Brock Again's third run since coming back from having breathing problems and a leg problem which kept this chestnut gelding off the course for more than a year. Last time out the selection ran into a useful looking horse, in the shape of Venetia Williams-trained Pressurize, but today's race looks a little easier and, with the market support, we are happy to back him to win.
Staying at Taunton for the 2m3f Novice Hurdle where we are willing to take on Antartica De Thaix at the price of 3.412/5, after a drift from 2.962/1. Having shown a fair bit of promise in a couple of bumpers, this Nicholls-trained runner fluffed her lines in her hurdling debut at Wincanton, unseating Nick Scholfield at the third hurdle. Favourite Robinesse has been solid in the market and looks to be still improving so, with what looks like a two horse race, we are more than happy to Follow The Money and oppose Antartica De Thaix.
Back Scot Daddy each way @ 8.415/2 in the 14:20 at Wolverhampton
Back The Brock Again @ 2.6213/8 in the 15:05 at Taunton
Lay Antartica De Thaix @ 3.412/5 in the 15:40 at Taunton
