Michael Shinners reveals the Sky Bet Trader's tip of the day along with the firm's Price Boosts and market movers.

Market Movers


2.15 Canny Kool       8/1  from 20/1 - beaten 23 lengths on debut but we've seen good support for Brian Ellison's youngster

2.45 Craggaknock     3/1 from 11/2 - in-form C&D winner who receives weight all round

3.45 Hoodna             5/2 from 9/2 (10p Rule 4) - respectable runs in top handicaps the last twice, clear chance here

5.20 Teetotal            4/1 from 8/1 - three of his four wins have come over C&D and he's back on a workable mark


3.00 Off The Ground     7/2 from 9/2 - Alex Hammond's nap of the day has been popular in the offices

4.05 Barizan       5/1 from 13/2 - talented performer on his day and McCoy is an eyecatching booking

5.05 Kilfinichen Bay     3/1 from 5/1 - 10 race maiden could be suited by the step up in trip on debut for a new yard

Trader's Tip

5.15 Dundalk – Victor’s Beach

Mick Halford’s runner may be without a win since January, but he’s proven himself better on the all-weather in the past and, having dropped down the weights after a mixed turf campaign, he returns to his favoured surface from what looks a very handy mark.

All 3 of his career wins have come at the track and 7f/1m are his optimum conditions. The excellent Shane Foley takes over from a claimer and all things point to a big run from a good draw.
