We take a closer look at the horses moving in the markets across the UK and Ireland today.
The first market mover of the day is ROSSDERRIN in the 14:50 at Downpatrick. He has shortened from 14/1 into a best price of 11/2 and as short is as 4/1 in places. This four-year-old put up a respectable showing when seventh at Navan last month. He struggled before that at Ballinrobe but punters believe he showed enough last time to think he can do the business today. He steps up slightly in trip which should bring out further improvement. He may be beginning to bring it all together and the money for him suggests plenty think he can land the first victory of his short career so far.
The next mover of the day is running in the 15:15 at York. THE BELL CONDUCTOR in the 15:15 was as big as 6/1 earlier in the betting but is now a best price of 10/3 and as short as 5/2. This two-year-old ran a very good race on debut when finishing a neck second being Toro Strike. The winner is now rated 94, so that form suggests there is a lot more to come from Richard Fahey’s colt. He showed bags of speed and the move for him suggests punters think he can follow up that promising debut here today after a while off the track.
Lastly, JAWWAAL is running in the 16:20 at York. Some bookies were 12/1 but that is now long gone with a best price of 13/2 available and as short as 11/2 in places. Michel Dods’ four-year-old is running over 5f for the first time in his career and punters have been flocking to back him. He had excuses in both of his last runs and with more luck this time he should go close. He is now two pounds under his last winning mark so a contest like this is well within his reach. Punters think today could be his day where he finally gets off the mark for the season.
