Follow The Money: Vodka n Tonic not to our taste at Southwell

We are opposing Henderson's Vodka and at Southwell Tonic today
We are opposing Henderson's Vodka and Tonic at Southwell today

Today's Follow The Money column offers bets from Musselburgh and Southwell...

"Northside Prince has been strongly supported from 10.519/2 in to 7.06/1 and he has strong recent course form, having won and placed in his last two runs over today's distance. He does like a bit of give in the ground so the going should suit, and today we are recommending a back."

Back Northside Prince @ 7.06/1 in the 15:30 at Musselburgh

We start things off with our first positive, which runs in the 14:30 at Musselburgh. In this seven furlong nursery we are going to back Novinophobia who has been supported steadily this morning from 4.61 in to 3.613/5. This two-year-old colt definitely has room for improvement and ran a solid fifth in a tough nursery at Goodwood, when the competition was more fierce than today's field. Throw into the mix trainer Richard Fahey's strong course record with a 24% strike rate, and we feel confident in this selection today.

We remain at Musselburgh where we are backing Northside Prince in the 15:30 handicap. This gelding from the Alan Swinbank yard has been strongly supported from 10.519/2 in to 7.06/1 and he has strong recent course form, having won and placed in his last two runs over today's distance. He does like a bit of give in the ground so the going should suit, and today we are recommending a back.

Finally we head to Southwell for the 16:20 two mile handicap hurdle. Vodka n Tonic has drifted from 2.8415/8 to a current price of 3.052/1. This Nicky Henderson-trained gelding is coming back from a disappointing last run over 2m4f in May, and while the drop in trip may suit him we feel the in-form Mac Bertie offers a strong alternative. All things weighed up we feel there are enough reasons to oppose Vodka n Tonic so we are going with a lay.
