Maidens backed to get their heads in front
TWO horses in maidens, one at the start of Beverley's card and one at the end of Lingfield's, have been heavily backed to get their heads in front today.
Our Channel (2.10 Beverley) has form figures of 32 and punters clearly expect a 1 to be next in that sequence with the William Haggas-trained runner backed into 13-8 (from 4).
While that one has the benefit of racecourse experience, in the 5.30 at Lingfield Musaddas is being punted to making a winning debut. The Godolphin runner has hit a low of 6-4 having been priced up at 6-1 on the first show.
In the race before at Lingfield (5.00) Santadelacruz has been cut to 9-4 (from 11-2) to win for Gary and Ryan Moore.
Back up at Beverley, the other horse for money this morning has been Hail Bold Chief who is into 2-1 (from 7-2) for the 5.45.
