Market Movers:


2.30 Captain Scooby 3/1 from 9/2

On a long losing run but is well enough handicapped and has conditions to suit.

3.05 Christopher Chua 2/1 from 10/3

Yet to win in 27 attempts but has been knocking on the door and this race won't take a great deal of winning


4.25 Fieldgunner Kirkup 2/1 from 4/1

The Trader's Tip of the day from the Sky Bet team (see below), David Barron's charge has clearly caught a few other eyes.

5.30 Crossley 10/3 from 7/1

Another maiden but he was only beaten narrowly on last season's reappearance and has a top claimer booked for this season's return.


6.30 Polybius 6/4 from 15/8

Showed distinct promise on debut and is fancied to step up on that for a yard still looking for their first turf winner.

7.00 Like A Prayer 9/2 from 15/2

Disappointing favourite on turf after winning back-to-back races on the all-weather and could prove that form to be all wrong.

8.00 Clear Spring 13/2 from 14/1

Won the Great St Wilfrid consolation race last season and better judged on his reappearance rather than a disappointing run at Ascot last time.


8.15 Mariners Moon 9/2 from 11/2

Trained by the bang in-form David O'Meara, he got stuck in the mud at Doncaster but should appreciate the better going this evening & he's still unexposed.

Price Boosts:

Crowleys Law        Leicester- 3:55

Fathom Five          Chepstow- 2:30

Giovanni Boldini    Naas- 2:50

Hospital                    Listowel- 3:45

Hanno                    Leicester- 5:00

Percy Alleline            Winsdor- 6:00

My Spirit                    Carlisle- 7:45

Trader Tip:

Fieldgunner Kirkup- 4:25 Leicester

Fieldgunner Kirkup has won most of his races on the soft side of good and today looks like his day to get his head back in front. He has dropped 6 pounds since his last win and despite only coming midfield in his last race at Newcastle (won by the well handicapped King Torus) he looked ready to win again soon, travelling very well before been outpaced at a crucial stage on firmer ground than ideal (traded at just 1/5 in running to win the race). With Graham Gibbons board for the in-form David Barron stable, he looks sure to run a huge race this afternoon.
