Follow The Money: Betting Points to a winner at Newbury

Our lay features at Ffos Las today

Today's Follow The Money bets come from the meetings at Newbury, Ffos Las and Wolverhampton.

"The extra distance should not be a problem for Sbraase and Luke Morris looks set to guide home yet another winner on his way to an all-weather record of 100 winners in a season."

Back Sbraase @ 2.427/5 in the 16:00 at Wolverhampton

We start with the 15:40 Handicap Chase at Newbury where Westward Point is trading at 7.413/2 having started at an initial price of 12.5. This Warren Greatrex-trained gelding is lightly raced and although he was pulled up over course and distance 26 days ago he has won over this distance at Wetherby. We believe he will have a point to prove today on ground that suits for a yard in top form. The market support certainly suggests he is in with a strong chance in a tricky affair.

Next up we are off to Ffos Las for today's lay, Aigle De La See, who runs in the 15:50, and has taken a walk in the betting out to 4.3100/30 from 3.02/1. We believe that this step up in trip on heavy ground could prove a step too far for this five-year-old gelding. He was disappointing last time at Sandown when sent off favourite and a fairly long season may be taking its toll. Of his rivals there has been very strong support for the Mark Bradstock-trained Flintham who has been very strongly backed in from 4.57/2 in to 3.211/5, that's understandable as the yard is in great form and has a 45% strike rate at the course.

Finally we move to Wolverhampton where we are recommending Sbraase in the 16:00 following encouraging backing this morning - he is now trading at 2.427/5 from an initial price of 3.39/4. This four-year-old colt from the in-form James Tate yard has a superb course record, having two wins and four placed efforts from six attempts. He is going over 1m4f for the first time today but his form is strong and there should be more to come from him. The extra distance should not be a problem and Luke Morris looks set to guide home yet another winner on his way to an all-weather record of 100 winners in a season.
