Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when Springhill Lad was placed at BSP 3.83. Nick hopes to end his current stint in the tipping chair with a couple of winners from Ludlow...
"This likeable individual should take another step forward today."
14:30 Ludlow - Beallandendall
Beallandendall should prove difficult to beat in this interesting novices' hurdle.
This former Irish point winner put in a much improved effort last time out when beating Querry Horse over this course earlier this month. He took the lead two flights from home, and pulled clear to win with complete authority.
I thought that was a super effort, and this likeable individual should take another step forward today. He is trading at 2.6413/8 and I have backed him at that price.
Ascotdeux Nellerlie ran way below par when finishing down the field behind Cloudy Dream at Doncaster last November. He reportedly broke a blood vessel, and has been given plenty of time to recover.
He won a novice event over this course in October which reads well in the context of this race.
15:40 Ludlow - Midtech Valentine
Midtech Valentine should go close if bouncing back from her recent defeat behind Justatenner at Uttoxeter on Saturday.
She had previously beaten Norse Light in great style at Warwick. She cruised in to the lead three flights from home and skipped clear without being asked a question.
This will be her third race in 11 days, but connections feel she is up to the task. She is trading at 4.77/2 on the exchange which is fair in my opinion.
Hope's Wishes is the favourite at 3.613/5. She bolted up at Plumpton earlier this month and comes in to this race in cracking form. She clearly has more to offer but has risen in the weights.
