Ludlow - Thursday 22nd March 2018

  • 14:30 - Windsor Clive International Novices' Hurdle

    MICHAEL'S MOUNT sets the clear form standard on his novice hurdle victory over this trip at Doncaster in February and his Grade 2 third at Kempton last time out. Veiled Secret should be all the wiser for the experience gained on his NH bow at Doncaster last time and is the one expected to put up most resistance. Another capable of playing a supporting role is Never A Word, whose debut fourth at Warwick wasn't devoid of promise.

  • 15:00 - Alfa Aggregate Products Novices' Chase

    TREE OF LIBERTY finished a 10-length second to Saint Calvados on his penultimate outing at Newbury and then bolted up in a small-field handicap at Leicester last time, making all. He looks a tactical angle here and with winning C&D form in the book, too, he ticks plenty of boxes. Cap'n has been out of form over hurdles and now debuts over fences, while the 80-rated Over To Midnight cannot be sensibly recommended on these terms.

  • 15:35 - Severn Hospice Novices' Hurdle

    SILVER KAYF built on his victory at Huntingdon over the extended 2m3f when finishing a creditable third over 2m4f under a penalty at Southwell last time and is considered the safest option. Although penalised for winning at Market Rasen in November, Dans Le Vent is also expected to finish on the premises. If the aforementioned pair prove vulnerable under their penalties, Stage Summit, a bumper winner having his third run over timber, and point scorer Ballymillen, who debuts under Rules, could take a hand.

  • 16:10 - Bromfield Sand & Gravel Handicap Chase

    JUST CAMERON hasn't been the most consistent this season, something that is perhaps understandable given that he is now an 11-year-old, but Micky Hammond's charge is simply the best horse in this line-up and a repeat of his Wetherby handicap win in December would more than suffice. He can be forgiven a poor effort last time and can account for Tornado In Milan, who like the selection isn't getting any younger. Notarfbad did it well at Taunton last time and rates as a danger to all despite a 126-day absence.

  • 16:45 - Abberley Hall Open Hunters' Chase

    This can go the way of OPENING BATSMAN, who has been far from disgraced in two efforts this season at Hereford and Taunton and looks to be of interest now back over three miles. The 12-year-old is a past course and distance winner and can account for Real Milan, who was a game second behind the classy Unioniste at Fontwell four weeks ago, and Tugboat, who continues to run well in defeat and has an excellent amateur on board this time.

  • 17:15 - Ludlow Food Centre Handicap Hurdle

    Cyrius Moriviere tends to need his first run of a season and duly proved that when running a lot better behind Irish Roe in a handicap at Doncaster in early December. He should prove to be a key contender here if a three-month absence hasn't inconvenienced him. Awake At Midnight looks one to watch making his handicap debut for Philip Hobbs but the vote goes to FLASHING GLANCE, who was third when last seen at Chepstow to Silver Streak and has been given a winter break to avoid the worst of the ground. He has also had a wind operation which could potentially eke out further improvement.

  • 17:50 - G C Rickards Standard Open NH Flat Race

    Cheltenham bumper winner HERECOMESTHEBOOM missed the Champion Bumper last week on account of the ground but this is a much easier assignment compared to that and his most recent start at Ascot in a Listed event, so he can defy the penalty. Best To Come is one to consider having cost 64,000 euros as a store, while Inheritance Thief and Looks Frozen have solid claims on what they have achieved so far.
