Betting update

The pre-emptive moves at Doncaster last night assumed a deluge would hit Town Moor. With it looking increasingly unlikely that it will arrive before racing, both Captain Colby (2.35) and Idaho (3.45) are firming up to something more like their prices on Friday afternoon. These moves tend to keep going once they gather momentum, especially in the big betting races, as the Portland and St Leger undoubtedly are.
