The Follow The Money team are heading to Ireland for today's two back selections, while Catterick is the venue for this afternoon's lay bet...
For today's first positive we head to Thurles and the 14:15 Handicap Hurdle over 2m. Selection Mick The Boyo has seen steady support this morning, backed from an early 8.61 in to the currently trading 5.79/2. Fourth last time out at Fairyhouse after proving a little keen and suffering some interference two out, we feel with the money down and the yard in good form he will be bang in the mix today.
We remain at Thurles for today's each way pick in the 15:25 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 6f. Selection Positive Approach has been well backed this morning, starting the day at 9.08/1 and now trading 6.611/2. An impressive winner at Limerick last time out in December, showing real grit to come from behind and out-battle Figuartive on the day. He is up 4lbs for that performance, but a repeat should see him worthy of at least a place.
We head over to Catterick for today's negative in the 15:35 Handicap Chase over 1m 7f. Selection Nautical Twilight has proved easy to back drifting from 2.6813/8 out to 4.1. Despite running out an easy victor last time out at Newcastle, he is now up a further 8lbs for that performance and we feel in this much more competitive race that will prove the deciding factor. Were happy to take him on at the price and Star Presenter looks the one to watch out for after comfortably blowing away his rivals over course and distance last month.
Back Mick The Boyo @ 5.79/2 in the 14:15 Thurles
Back Positive Approach each way @ 6.611/2 in the 15:25 Thurles
Lay Nautical Twilight @ 4.1 in the 15:35 Catterick
