First up we are off to Lingfied and the 15:00 2yo Median Auction where BRIAN RYAN has been extremely well supported. The un-raced Robyn Brisland-trained colt was as big as 28/1 last night but is now just 3/1 with some firms (best price 4/1).
In the 15:20 at Exeter, punters have been backing TIKKAPICK to continue the great form of trainer Colin Tizzard. The 7yo is still chasing his first but has been placed in three hurdle races and three chases from his 18 starts. Pulled up when last seen 33 days ago when sent off at just 9/2 at Wincanton over 3m 1f (heavy), it appears today’s better ground and drop back in trip are expected to do the trick. 8/1 on first showing yesterday evening, he’s now as short as 7/2 in some places (best price 4/1).
Back at Lingfield and TURNBURY is the one backers want to be on in the 17:00. A four-time winner, the 6yo is the only one of the 10 runners to have previously scored at today’s venue and his recent runs have been better than the final placing suggests. 9/1 last night, he’s now battling for favouritsm and is 3/1 with one bookie (best price 9/2).
Finally it’s back to Exeter where OUR CHIEF is the one punters want to be on in the 17:50 Hunters’ Chase. As big as 20/1 last night, the 8yo is now just 11/2 with a number of firms (best price 13/2).
