Thursday's Market Movers from Oddschecker

First up is the last race of the day at Chelmsford where Roger Varian's newcomer LAQAB has been the subject of heavy support. Not yet seen on a racecourse, the 3yo is a half-brother three winners. As big as 10/1 this morning, he's now as short as 13/8.

Over at Pontefract there has been money for Saeed bin Surror's MEMORIAL DAY. Off the track for the best part of a year, the 5yo looked progressive before his long absence winning three times from 1m to 1m 4f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft. 6/1 on first show last night, the 5yo is now a general 7/2 shot.

On to the bumper at Perth where WOODFORT is a strong favourite for trainer Nigel twiston-Davies. The form of his point-to-point run in Ireland looks to be nothing special but it would be no surprise if the four-year-old had strengthened and improved now in the care of a trainer who knows how to prime horses for their first outing in bumpers. 5/1 when the race was first priced up last night, the 4yo is now as short as 9/4 with one firm.

Finally, we're back to Pontefract for Sir Mark Prescott's CARTWRIGHT who has been backed in from 9/4 to 6/4 favourite. The 3yo landed a couple of minor handicaps before heading for the Polytrack at Chelmsford where he appeared to find the 1m6f beyond him. This race looks more his trip though and the market suggests he can return to winning ways.
