We take a closer look at the horses moving in the markets across the UK and Ireland today.
First up in the 12:45 at Leicester, EXCELLENT TEAM is now just 4/1 best price and as short as 10/3 after being 7/1 earlier this morning. A winner of four hurdle races and a previous winner over this afternoon’s distance, he should provide stiff competition to the market favourites.
Next in the 14:30 at Carlisle, KNOCKNAMONA is top of the betting and is now 4/1 best price after being 8s earlier. A winner over this gruelling 3 mile distance, the stamina he has shown on multiple occasions should stand him in good stead with this heavy ground today.
Finally, in the 15:00 at the same track, WESTERN RULES is 4/1 best price in from 7s, and is only 4lb higher than when he won at Ayr earlier in the year. He is most definitely one to think about.
