Timeform pick out their three best bets from Ludlow on Monday...

"...with improvement still a potential, he can concede weight all round and score."

Timeform on Mystical Clouds

Mystical Clouds - Ludlow 14:15

Mystical Clouds was defeated at odds of 1/16 at Uttoxeter last time, falling heavily when holding the lead two out, and whilst he may not have even won had he have stood up, he still has leading claims on the back of his win at Bangor two starts back, when scoring by 14 lengths. He sets the form standard in this, and with improvement still a potential, he can concede weight all round and score.

Burn Baby Byrne - Ludlow 14:45

Burn Baby Byrne showed plenty to work with on her second start over hurdles when finishing second here 10 days ago, giving the impression that she would be well up to winning a similar race up against her own sex. Switched to such company, against a field in which the majority are far more exposed, she gets the vote to score. Danceintothelight is limited, but she is dangerous if allowed an easy lead, whilst Way Out West is another to consider.

Rasasee - Ludlow 15:50

Rasasee showed the benefit of a first-time visor when producing a much-improved performance to finish second at Plumpton last month, and with that headgear applied once again here, he could take plenty of stopping in a particularly weak race. Market Road could be the one for the forecast, though cases can also be made for Red Admirable and Agincourt Reef.
