Saturday's Market Movers:


14:40 – Al Kazeem 7/4 from 9/4

Lacks a recent run obviously but favoured by the weights on his return and the Group 1 wins on his CV are drawing the punters in.

16:25 – Time Test 10/11 from 7/4

Roger Charlton-trained newcomer in the Abdullah silks and he's clearly been showing up well at home.

Market Rasen

13:45 – Vosne Romanee 11/4 from 9/2

Consistent on the level, albeit at a lowly level, and he takes to hurdles for the first time in public this afternoon.

14.20 – Enchanted Garden 3/1  from 9/2

Won here on his penultimate start and has since gone close on the level at Musselburgh.


15.05 – Jellwa  4/1 from 7/1 

Strong each-way support for Mick Channon's newcomer, whose dam is a half-sister to Dylam Thomas.

15.40 – Lady Horatia 3/1 from 9/2

Stable going great guns at present and this one looks on the verge of another success following placed efforts on her last three starts.

16.50 – Crowdmania 11/2 from 10/1

Almost halved in price following strong support and it's worth noting a lot of Mark Johnston's three-year-olds have really picked up their form lately.


15.55 Endeavor 5/1  from 7/1

Stable does well with their runners at this venue and this gelding is also entered to run here on Monday.

16.30 Cool Baranca 9/2 from 13/2

Another Dianne Sayer-trained runner being backed at the Cumbria venue and this one has a course record in the formbook.


19.30 - Lord Ben Stack 5/1 from 14/1

Entered in next year's Derby so clearly held in the highest regard and the support says it all.

19.30 – Maftoon 7/2 from 10/1

Shaped with promise first time out at Newmarket and his trainer clearly has a good line on the two-year-old form.

21.00 – Equitable 11/2 from 10/1

Lady Cecil won't have too many horses rated in the 70s and this Dansili colt could have stacks of improvement to come.

Today's Price Boosts:

6.00 Lingfield - Al Bandar

7.30 Haydock - Here Now

8.00 Haydock – Professor

Newbury 2.40 - Al Kazeem

Newmarket 3.05 – Arethusa

Curragh 5.45 – Tarfasha

Ripon 2.35 – Khawaater

Ripon 4.20 – Jodies Jem

Cartmel 4.30 – Manjakani

Market Rasen 4.05 – Parlour Games

Trader's Tip:

Life and Soul – 4.30 Cartmel

The fairly valuable lady riders handicap on the card looks a good betting heat and Donald McCain’s Life and Soul makes plenty of appeal.

Although yet to really fire on all cylinders this term, that has resulted in some respite from the assessor, now 2lb lower in the weights than when successful in the corresponding event last season, and things just didn’t go his was when last seen at Aintree.

The re-fitting of headgear and the booking of Lucy Alexander also bode well for his chances of repeating last year’s win.
