Today's Follow The Money brings bets from the meetings at Wincanton and Southwell.

"Extreme Supreme has struggled in recent times, but the return to familiar surroundings might make the difference. The market support certainly suggests he is in with a strong chance in this open field."

Back Extreme Supreme @ 3.9 in the 13:50 at Southwell

Lay Lifeboat Mona @ 3.052/1 in the 13:30 at Wincanton
Back Dolores Delightful @ 8.27/1 in the 15:05 at Wincanton

First up we are going to Wincanton for our negative in the 13:30 mares novice hurdle, where we are opposing Lifeboat Mona who has taken a walk out to 3.052/1 from an early price of 2.427/5. This six-year-old mare from the Paul Nicholls yard looked fairly promising in bumpers last year and went on to lose her maiden status over hurdles when winning at the first time of asking over course and distance. Whilethat form does demand respect, she was pulled up on heavy ground in her last run at Taunton in December. It is also heartening to see her up against the well-supported Brise Vendeenne, half-sister to the slightly more gifted Vroum Vroum Mag, who has 6lbs in hand on Lifeboat Mona today. Bearing this in mind, we hope today's testing ground will prove too much and we are recommending a lay.

Next we head to the fibresand of Southwell for our first positive of the day in the 13:50 handicap. Extreme Supreme is trading at 3.9 having started at an initial price of 5.06. This Derek Shaw-trained gelding has done most of his best work around this course and distance with two wins and a place from three runs. In recent times he has struggled, but the return to familiar surroundings might make the difference. The market support certainly suggests he is in with a strong chance in this open field.

Finally we return to Wincanton for our each way back in the 15:05 handicap hurdle where we are recommending Dolores Delightful. This mare has been encouragingly backed this morning and is now trading at 8.27/1 from an initial price of 9.89/1. She returns to hurdles today after an indifferent start to chasing, but was a course winner on similarly testing ground a year ago. With the likely champion jockey in waiting - Richard Johnson - in the saddle for trainer Nick Williams today, there are plenty of reasons to have confidence in this each-way selection.
