Some interesting juveniles being supported today including Bated Beauty at Leopardstown and Tom Dascombe's Arthur Kitt at Haydock - we round up all the movers and shakers.
Just about something for everyone on a busy Friday programme and the prospect of rain in the afternoon hasn't deterred punters from getting stuck in at Haydock, where the Tom Dascombe-trained two-year-old Arthur Kitt is very strong in the betting.
Aidan O'Brien's newcomer Cape Of Good Hope has been heavily backed at Leopardstown to beat California Daddy, who was a fine second to Van Beethoven first time out, while there has been nibbles for Solar Flair and Sir Titan at Goodwood.
The best-backed runner with Sky Bet this morning is Bated Beauty at Leopardstown. The Bated Breath filly makes her first racecourse appearance in the mile maiden.

Despite not being devoid of ability in two bumpers early last year, it was hard to envisage WHITLEY NEILL creating such a deep impression on hurdling debut at Exeter last month. That said, David Pipe’s novice was having his first run for a year when landing that race, suggesting that any issues that were restraining the six-year-old in those bumpers may have been ironed out. The form took a significant boost when the second (Darling Malatix) ran competitively in a warm novice event for this time of year. Despite the burden of a penalty, there should be plenty more to come from the youngster who represents the same owners of Grand National hero Amberleigh House.
