Find out what one of the UK's top pro-punters is backing or laying today.
LOOK BUSY - 3:30 Chester - Back at 2.0 or more
Look Busy has already won six races this year, so there's no doubting her attitude and she's also proven on soft ground. Her recent form, including a win in a Group 3 in Ireland last time against male opposition, puts her well ahead of her rivals in this race restricted to fillies and mares, so the one question mark is the 6F trip. All her wins have come over 5F, but they've all seen her doing her best work in the closing stages - she tried 6F over C+D three runs back, but could only finish sixth from an impossible draw in stall 12. Even then she had almost four lengths in hand of Angus Newz, who looks the main danger today. With a vastly better draw in stall 2 this time, she should be able to get a lead from Angus Newz (drawn 1) and I expect the pair to dominate the race.
FOXHAVEN - 4:05 - Chester - Back at 5.0 or more
Foxhaven hasn't won for two years, but his last win came in this race, so we know he handles the track. In two starts this year, he hasn't had his favoured soft ground, but he's run close to his best in decent company. He looks excellent value here as the opposition all has big question marks - Veracity returns from a long layoff and showed his best form over much further, so he's surely being prepared for better races rather than coming here 100% ready - Crime Scene ran a shocker on his only start this year and was well behind Foxhaven that day - Strategic Mount ran well here last month, but he's basically a top class handicapper and has a bit to find to feature at this level.
