One of the best-backed horses of the day so far is SWANTON BLUE at Bath this evening.
Still a maiden after 11 starts, the Ed de Giles 3yo has finished third on his last two outings, including a solid effort over C&D last week when beaten 2l at 6/1.
11/4 on first show last night, he's now into as short as 7/4 in places.
At Newmarket there has been support for the very warm favourite IN THE CITY.
Beaten only a head when second of 15 at 15-8jt-fav on his latest outing at the course over 7f earlier this month, William Haggas' charge has been backed to make amends this evening.
Opening at 11/10 last night, 8/13 is now the best price on offer among the bookies.
Another runner at Newmarket that has been subject of strong support is WILD HACKED.
A winner at 1m on good ground four starts ago, the Marco Botti trained colt has shown good form in strong handicaps on his last two outings including finishing a 4l fourth of 13 at 11/1 over C&D earlier this month.
As big as 7/2 last night, bookies have him as a general 13/8 shot.
Finally it's to Thirsk we go where there has been plenty of money for SAFE VOYAGE.
Having shown some promise in a couple of maidens this year, a mark of 67 looks reasonably fair on his handicap debut and the John Quinn 3yo should have more scope for improvement than any of his rivals.
The punters have latched on to this and his price has contracted from 9/2 overnight to as short as 11/4 in places.
