A speculative start to the Premium Bets today as little has really caught my eye if I'm 100% honest.

It's going to seem quite strange not to see Ryan Moore on board the Abdullah horses trained by Sir Michael Stoute following the appointment of James Doyle (left) as retained rider for the wealthy owner. It's probably a good move but I can't help but feel Ryan Moore may have something to say about that at Sandown today. On my figures I have both MISSION APPROVED and LABARINTO at value prices in their respective races today although neither are consistent and both have question marks. Mission Approved has a wide draw for starters and is dropping down fairly markedly to 5f, both those would be enough to dissuade me but on the other hand he has been gelded since and is a hard puller so if allowed his head today and providing he doesn't over-race too much in the early stages I can see him out-running his double-figure price. Labarinto isn't at all consistent but did win this race last year from a 4lb higher mark and ran ok at Goodwood a couple of outings ago. Try, if you can, to take advantage of the Bet365 4/1+ CH4 offer for the latter.

Sandown 2.05 MISSION APPROVED 1pt each-way @ 14/1 (Betvictor BOG)
Sandown 3.50 LABARINTO 1pt each-way @ 12/1 (Bet365 BOG & CH4 4/1+ Offer Race)
