Today's Follow the Money comes from Ludlow and Taunton.  

Recommended Bets:

Back Cloudy Joker @ 3.7511/4 in the 14:30 at Ludlow 

Back Dancingtilmidnight @ 2.89/5 in the 15:00 at Ludlow 

Lay Ceasar Milan @ 1.84/5 in the 16:10 at Taunton 

We start the day at Ludlow with the 14:30 Novices' Handicap Chase, where Cloudy Joker has been backed into 3.7511/4 from a high of 4.67/2. The Donald McCain-trained six-year-old is in fine form since his switch to chasing, winning all three starts including a close win over current favourite Benbens here back in December. He followed that up landing a hat-trick at Catterick Bridge last month. He's 7lbs worse off for his winning efforts but he's a tough horse who can find more. 
 
Staying at Ludlow for the 15:00 Mares' Handicap Hurdle, where Dancingtilmidnight is currently trading at 2.89/5 from 3.412/5. The seven-year-old is trained by the in-form Harry Fry, who has three wins from his last five races. Off for over a year, this point winning mare made a perfect start under rules when winning a mare's event here back in 2012 following that up with another win over hurdles at Newbury last time out. This suggests her handicap mark of 114 may be lenient and the market agrees with her being a very clear favourite.
 
We head over to Taunton for our negative of the day running in the 16:10 Handicap Hurdle. Ceasar Milan has drifted this morning from 1.68/13 out to 1.84/5 and is running under a penalty for his efforts last week. Add that to the fact the Venetia Williams-trained Somemothersdohavem is being supported from 6.25/1 in to 4.57/2 ensures there's value in taking this favourite on.
