Market Movers

3:20 Catterick  Chester Deal  14/1 to 9/1  

Has a plater's mark after three runs in maidens but represents a shrewd yard and the booking of Franny Norton takes the eye.

4:00 Lingfield  Pabusar  25/1 to 11/4

Not the force of old but still capable on his day and we've seen a few successful gambles from the Ann Stokell yard this season.

4:20 Catterick  Megaleka  6/1 to 3/1

In-form filly represents the canny Alan Bailey and her chance must be respected.

4:50 Catterick  Cahal  6/1 to 10/3

A winner here in April, he drops in trip but should have the pace to cope and isn't badly handicapped.

6:05 Sandown  Black Minstrel  8/1 to 11/2

Landed a right touch on his reappearance before flopping last time - the market suggests that run is best ignored.

8:20 Sandown  Gambol  6/4 to 5/4

Shaped as though he's have more to offer over this trip when winning well at Doncaster lasat time

8:50 Sandown  Tom Sawyer  5/1 to 7/2

C&D winner who found only one too strong last time and has clear claims of going one better under the excellent apprentice Megan Carberry who is very good value for her claim.

Trader's Tip of the Day

7.55 Leicester – Monsieur Rieussec

Monsieur Rieussec looks the one to be on at Leicester this evening having shaped with promise on both his starts so far this term .

The son of Halling is still unexposed beyond a mile and left the distinct impression a return to the winning enclosure was imminent when fifth at Windsor last month, still a close-up third when stopped in his run late on and not persevered with thereafter.

Tonight’s race doesn’t look as competitive, and with the extra furlong expected to really play to his strengths,  a big run is confidently expected from Jonathon Portman’s representative.
