Today's Follow The Money comes from the meetings at Exeter and Uttoxeter...
We begin with a back selection in the 13:50 2m4f Handicap Chase at Uttoxeter in which Minellaforlunch has come in from 2.546/4 to [2.08 ]. Ridden by James Davies for the Henry Oliver yard we expect Minellaforlunch to cope well with the ground and to register a first win despite competition from Silver Dragon in particular. After earlier distance experiments this 2m4f trip looks best suited.
Our lay of the day is Jac The Legend which runs in the 15:20 2m7f Handicap Hurdle also at Uttoxeter. Jac The Legend is ridden by Craig Gallagher for the Brian Ellison stable and has gone out from 3.06 to 3.814/5. A winner last time out and a decent stayer we feel the extra 6lb being carried this time and strong competition, including San Telm, will prove just a little too much.
The final selection is an Each Way play on Never Say Never in the 16:00 2m1f Handicap Hurdle at Exeter. Never Say Never has come in from 6.72 to 4.67/2 and is ridden by Harry Cobden for the Anthony Honeyball yard. There is little form to go on but the weight of money and a solid enough record on today's going suggest it has a decent each way chance in what is a fairly modest field. Competition is likely to come from Legion Dhonneur and Hollywood All Star.
Back Minellaforlunch @ 2.0811/10 in the 13:50 at Uttoxeter
Lay Jac The Legend @ 3.814/5 in the 15:20 at Uttoxeter
Back Each Way Never Say Never @ 4.67/2 in the 16:00 at Exeter
