First up today it’s off to Ireland for a 6f handicap.
BLAIRMAYNE was far from disgraced when fourth over 7f at Galway last time and is a potential improver now cutting back to 6f, over which he struck at Fairyhouse in June.
Certainly punters believe this to be the case. 10/3 first show last night, the best odds on offer now are 2/1.
Next up is the last race of the day up at Newcastle and FUTOON.
A previous winner over 5f, he finished 5l behind the eventual winner when fifth of 14 at 16/1 on her latest outing at Newmarket over 6f (good to firm) last month.
Today’s conditions should be more in favour for her this time around with the drop in trip and class both positives.
7/1 on first showing last night, she is now best-priced 7/2.
Over at Wolverhampton, DENMEAD has been the subject of strong support.
Placed twice in seven starts, the 3yo was beaten 2 1/2l when second of 12 at 9/1 on his latest outing at Kempton over 1m 4f on Monday.
Taken to build on that performance by punters, the 5/1 available yesterday evening is gone with 3/1 the best odds now on offer.
Finally it’s to Brighton and a 6f handicap.
MONSIEUR VALENTINE was beaten 10l when last of 7 at 33/1 on his latest outing at Chepstow over 1m (soft) in June and has shown no real form since a soft ground success last summer.
The market believes there will be a change in fortunes today as the Tony Carrol trained 4yo is as short as 9/2 from 20/1 last night
