03.02.17 Fridays Market Movers
There has been strong support for CRITICAL THINKING in the 15:00 32RedSport.com Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Lingfield. Julia Fielden’s 3yo was last seen finishing a close 2nd at the course over 7 furlongs seven days ago. Stepping up to 1m2f today, the mount of Shelley Birkett has been backed in from as big as 18/1 with one bookmaker to as short as 13/2 in places.
In the 19:15 32Red.com Handicap DUTCH GOLDEN AGE has been backed to continue his upward curve over 6f. The 5yo did not quite get home when beaten over 7f last time out but he had been successful over this C&D the time before and punters have snapped up the 8/1 on offer this morning with Gary Moore’s son of Kodiac now 9/2 with some firms.
NOMOREBLACKJACK is a springer in the market for Catterick’s 14:15 Free Racedays With The Racegoers Club Novices' Handicap Chase. A winning point-to-pointer over 3m, Sue Smith’s 6yo was sent off the 5/2fav at Newcastle over 2m 11 days ago when pulled up two out. As big as 7/1 this morning with some bookmakers, the support has seen his odds cut to just 7/2 with one firm (best price 5/1).
In the 13:15 Racing To School Juvenile Hurdle at Catterick WALSINGHAM GRANGE is a very hot favourite. Pam Sly’s 4yo has yet to run a bad race over hurdles and today appears to be an ideal opportunity to break his maiden tag over obstacles. 9/4 on first showing last night, the market leader is now 5/4 with most firms.
