Taranis has been well backed ahead of this evening's run

Andrew Twitchen with all of the latest market movers from the Sky Bet trading room.

Taranis 11/4 from 10/3 - 8.20 Cheltenham

Hard to know what to expect from this former high class chaser. Has been very fragile in recent years and fresh has been the time to catch him so we'll see how he goes given he won a Point to point recently although he hardly had a race that day. Today's trip would be a minimum but always the chance he could totally outclass these rivals at this his favourite track.

Pastoral Player 7/2 from 9/2 - 3.00 Ascot

Hughie Morrison has started the season quite well and although he's stated this horse will come on from the run it hasn't stopped some solid support.

This trip is the limit of his stamina and is possibly suited to big fields where he has a strong pace to run at but he has a good record fresh. No doubt George Baker will be waiting as long as he can before making his move.

Eastern Destiny 5/1 from 6/1 - 3.55 Pontefract

Tough son of Dubai Destination who won't go down without a fight but a slight suspicion he wants softer ground to be seen at his best. This race has some potential improvers but Richard Fahey's horse already has some proven form in the book and a decent claimer taking off 5lb.
