Will George Baker be smiling after Capitol Gain has run today?

Wednesday's Market Movers:

14:30 Catterick – Thrust Control 7/1 from 10/1

Knows this track well and entitled to respect in bottom grade, even if outside draw is no help.

16:00 Catterick – Dark Castle 4/1 from 13/2

Non-runner at Ponty last week when the heavens opened, conditions ought to suit better here.

15:10 Lingfield – Bold Runner – 11/4 from 15/2

Rookie trainer looking for first winner and confidence behind this one to give him the breakthrough.

17:10 Lingfield – Capitol Gain – 4/1 from 13/2

Interesting connections and possibly still open to improvement on the Flat for this stable

16:50 Uttoxeter – Tregaro 13/2 from 12/1 and That’s The Deal 14/1 from 40/1

Two outsiders backed against the shorter-priced horses, even though both seem to have a lot on their plates.

19:55 Worcester – The Omen 5/1 from 7/1

Has some potential on point-to-point form, but his backers will be hoping for a better round of jumping.

19:40 Sandown – George Cinq 2/1 from 10/3

Stable absolutely flying and escapes a penalty for latest victory in an apprentices' handicap.

Today's Price Boosts:

2:00 Catterick- Miami Carousel

4:30 Catterick- Irondale Express

4:20 Uttoxeter- On The Record

4:40 Lingfield- Clear Mind

5:40 Killarney- Tigris River

7:25 Worcester- My Nosy Rosy

7:40 Sandown- Billingsgate

Trader's Tip:

6:35 Sandown- Biotic

The Rod Millman trained Biotic looks to have a great chance in the ultra-competitive seven-furlong handicap at Sandown this evening. He left his three very modest runs at two behind him when returning as a three-year-old, backed as if defeat was out of the question on his seasonal debut at Kempton, and duly obliged under today’s rider Andrea Atzeni. He has been a model of consistency since that win without getting his head in front with three further placed efforts. With Azteni back on board, this prominent racer looks sure to go close today.
