Market Movers

3.10 Ascot - Solar Magic 11/4 from 9/2

Plenty to like about recent Nemarket debut but John Gosden's charge goes up in class here.

3.40 Punchestown - Maguire’s Glen 8/1 from 11/1

Seeking a hat-trick and the good ground is a huge positive or him.

3.45 Ascot - Tac De Boistron 3/1 from 7/2

Better than ever at the back end of last season and will like the ground.

4.15 Ascot - French Navy 2/1 from 5/2

Handles soft ground and made very encouraging reappearance at Newmarket for Charlie Appleby.

4.20 Punchestown - Medieval Chapel 8/1 from 14/1

Represents Nicky Henderson and never lived up to lofty reputation so far - but faces different ground this time.

5.30 Punchestown - Lyreen Legend 5/1 from 6/1

Right back to his best in the Cheltenham Gold Cup last time and being backed to follow up with another bold show.

Traders' Tip

Highbrow Blue 3.40 Punchestown

An impressive 16-length winner over fences on his debut for the Paul Nolan yard last time, Highbrow Blue stamped himself as a much-improved performer that day at Wexford and is totally unexposed over timber for these connections. With that facile success in mind, the handicapper looks to have taken a big risk by giving him an opening mark of just 107. The booking of the promising young rider Shane Shortall is a further boost to his already strong claims.
