Market Movers: Let it Roll
The Sky Bet traders head to the Melbourne Cup for their tip while Michael Shinners has the domestic movers and boosts.
Tiger Roll is a Price Boost at Wexford
4.30 – Ballybough Niamh 28/1 from 50/1
13.55 Galway – Free Expression
14.10 Plumpton – Queens Well
14.50 Kempton – Yalawin
15.15 Wexford – Tiger Roll
16.00 Hereford – On Demand – Feature Boost
04.00 Flemington – Melbourne Cup – Almandin
The ex-German trained Almandin looks to be the ideal type for Australia's races the stops a nation. When campaigned in Europe he had really strong form, finishing second to none other than multiple Group 1 winner Solow. He then went on to easily beat 2014 Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist on only his fourth start. Since then he's clearly had a few issues but has really found his feet during the last two months Down Under. On only his eighth start last month he was a very impressive winner in one of the main trials at Flemington. He's clearly still unexposed with the potential for even more improvement when stepped up to this trip. Jockey Kerrin McEvoy is in flying form this Spring Carnival and if he can get a good position early from stall 17 he looks sure to finish in the money. With Sky Bet offering six places he looks a superb each-way bet around the 12/1 mark.
