Follow The Money: Go to war with Combative at Ascot
Firstly we head to Redcar for today's each-way selection in the 15:25 Handicap over 7f. Selection Shamaheart has seen steady support this morning backed from a high of [10.5] in to the currently available [8.0]. A winner at Nottingham last time out he faces a 5lb penalty and jump in class today. Despite this he has shown considerable promise and remarkable consistency for each way backers, placing or winning on his last six starts and were happy to be supporters at the price.
Our second positive comes the 15:30 Shergar Cup Classic at Ascot over 1m 4f. Selection Combative has proved popular with punters and is now in to [6.6] from [9.2]. A winner on debut at Lingfield, he hasn't set the world alight since but showed signs of improvement in a competitive race at Goodwood a week ago when staying on well to take fifth. The step up in trip will likely suit and with the money down were happy to follow the gamble on this one.
Finally we head to Newmarket for today's negative in the 17:00 Handicap over 1m. Selection Daily Bulletin has drifted like a barge out to [2.8] from an early [1.87], on paper he looks to be the winner with a Grp1 entry and a win last time out. However the drift is disconcerting and with the prolific winner Sir Roderic firing on all cylinders and seeking the four timer in the race today we are happy to be layers.
