Market Movers


12:55- Move in Time- 9/2 from 6/1 - Got his head back in front last time and has some useful C&D form.


2:55- Educate- 6/1 from 15/2 - Selected by Value Bet, this five-year-old will relish any rain that falls.

3:25- Psychometry- 7/1 from 10/1 - We've seen money for everything Ryan Moore rides today! This filly has been disappointing so far this season but it wouldn't be a surprise to see her bounce back.

4:00- Provenance- 11/8 from 7/4 - Value for more than the winning margin at Sandown, this well-bred filly looks progressive.

5:05- Satellite- 5/2 from 7/2 - Bumped into a good one at Doncaster last time and surprising if we've seen the best of William Haggas' charge yet.


3:20- No Poppy- 5/1 from 13/2 - This mare was a good winner two days ago and has been backed to go in again.

4:55- Run with Pride- 4/1 from 13/2 - Derek Shaw rates this fellow highly and the form of his latest run is working out well.

Trader's Tip

2.30 Newmarket- Master of Finance

The rain came in bucket loads yesterday and that will suit Mark Johnston’s 3 year old and he can show his older rivals a clean pair of heels reverting to his favourite surface.

Cam Hardie takes a very useful 5lbs off his back and a below par effort can be forgiven at Royal Ascot on quick ground as he stumbled coming out of the stalls and was looked after late on by William Buick.

He looks a value call at around the 5/1 mark.
