Ludlow - Wednesday 19th December 2018

1 12:20 PM - Tanners Burgundy 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle

Carlisle winner Good Boy Bobby runs under a penalty, as do recent Huntingdon scorer Cervaro Mix and Massini Man, who took a forward step when striking over 2m at Hereford. In receipt of weight from the aforementioned trio, the one to be on could therefore be OAKLEY, who appears to be improving between runs and posted a career-best effort when runner-up over the extended 1m7f at Southwell last time.

2 12:55 PM - Alfa Aggregate Products Beginners' Chase

Chameron was having his first start since undergoing wind surgery when falling at Chepstow last time and commands respect on these terms providing that tumble hasn't left its mark. Preference is instead for PSYCHEDELIC ROCK, a hurdles winner in August who shaped encouragingly on his fencing bow behind Thomas Campbell over C&D last time. Any money for Equus Secretus, who returns from an absence, would also be noteworthy.

3 1:25 PM - Tanners Wines Handicap Chase

Sternrubin has been raised 5lb for his easy victory over C&D last time and has place claims along with Theflyingportrait, who won emphatically at Wetherby when last sighted. For win purposes, however, it might be worth taking a chance on C&D winner BIGMARTRE in the hope the fitting of first-time cheekpieces could be a source of immediate improvement. Mercian Prince has recently undergone wind surgery and is also worth a market check.

4 2:00 PM - G C Rickards Ltd EBF Mares' 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle

ETAMINE DU COCHET was second to We Have A Dream on debut at Warwick last year and has followed that effort up with two solid performances in defeat more recently. If running to her mark, Dan Skelton's 119-rated performer could feasibly open her account. Nicky Henderson's Trull La La is expected to know her job first time out and is worth monitoring in the betting, likewise point-to-point winner Malachys Girl.

5 2:35 PM - Tanners Champagne Handicap Chase

Badger Ales second Sumkindofking appears weighted to go close providing conditions don't deteriorate. Marginal preference, however, is for BEAU DU BRIZAIS, who has been raised 6lb for his victory ahead of the first-named over 3m1f here last time and is unlikely to be fazed by this slight drop in trip. Big runs from recent Ascot second Spider's Bite and C&D winner Fox Appeal are also anticipated.

6 3:05 PM - Tanners Prosecco Handicap Hurdle (For Lady Amateur Riders)

BURN BABY BYRNE won impressively over track and trip when last sighted and it is worth siding with her again as she bids to overcome an 11lb rise. Galactic Power steps up in trip after picking up minor money over 2m2f at Exeter and can fight it out for the silver medal with Ablazing, who was having his first outing since returning from a long break when fifth over 2m4f at Uttoxeter recently.

7 3:35 PM - Tanners Claret Standard Open NH Flat Race

Nicky Henderson has a fine record in this bumper, with the recently-retired My Tent Or Yours (2011) and Rather Be (2015) two notable examples, and he saddles another interesting prospect in NONESUCH. A 155,000-euro purchase as a store, she comes from the family of top 2m chaser Nickname and is also related to Listed winners on the level in France. Jimmy The Digger is respected on his Bangor second, while Parkin is related to useful handicapper Parsnip Pete and is another to note.
