"I think the well travelled Future Security can upset probable favourite Ballykan in this novices’ hurdle"

Back Future Security in the Sportsbook at 3/1 in the 16:45 at Ludlow

14:15 Ludlow - Quebec

This is an interesting little race that features the improving Quebec who has won his last two races in good style. In fact connections had to go to 31k to retain him after he won a seller in March.

Today he races with a double penalty, which makes him vulnerable in my opinion. He faces legitimate opposition from several runners including Guard Of Honour and Gambol who will be making his debut under rules. The former won a novices' handicap hurdle at Stratford in April. A reproduction of that effort would see him go close.

The well related Gambol was knocked down to Ian Williams for 20k gns at Tatts last October. He was rated 81 on the flat, and could be capable of springing the upset.

I think the price on Quebec is extremely thin and I will be laying him in the win market at around 2.68/5.

At this price little damage will be done if he prevails.


16:45 Ludlow - Future Security

I think the well travelled Future Security can upset probable favourite Ballykan in this novices' hurdle. This gelding ran twice at St Moritz during the winter but appears happier competing under rules.

He beat Hawdyerwheesht in great style over this course last month, and was not disgraced behind Another Journey at Bangor last time out.

Ballykan won a long distance maiden hurdle at Huntingdon in March, but may not be as effective over this shorter trip.

The selection is priced at 3/1 in the Sportsbook which is more than fair.
