STARTERS ORDERS Thursday

 

Welcome to Starters Orders. Our new daily midday update from the trading room at Star Sports with our key market movers for the day across all sports.

Thursday 13 June

Busier morning with some top class racing at Newbury this afternoon and Leopardstown tonight (two Group races) attracting the interest of our punters.

On the golf front we’re underwaay today with the US Open and we’ve laid Tiger Woods today after yesterday’s drift. Bits and pieces of interest on Tiger who is now 11/2 as we head into battle.

Newbury 1.50
Plenty of money flying around for Toast Of The Town (6/4 > 11/10) who was only pipped at Ascot last time behind a smart sort.

Newbury 2.20
Richard Hannon runs two debutants but the money horse has been Showpiece – we’ve laid 11/4 and is still that price.

Newbury 2.50
Plenty of money for the Sir Michael Stoute debutant Astonishing (4/1 > 100/30).

Newbury 3.25
No surprises that Lady Nouf is proving very popular (7/4 > 5/4) given she was second to subsequent Oaks winner Talent at Newmarket last time out.

Godolphins runner Music Chart is friendless.

Newbury 4.00
We’ve seen plenty of interest in the Luca Cumani trained Pleasure Bent (7/2 > 5/2) who was also well backed when winning at Warwick last time out.

Leopardstown Tonight
Plenty of support for the market leaders already. Bracelet (6/4 > 11/10) in the opener, Reply (6/4 > 11/10) in the first of the Group 3 races and Tickled Pink (11/4 > 9/4) in the second Group 3 which would be a poignant winner for Lady Cecil.
