Back Brahms De Clermont in the 12:35 at Ludlow

12:35 Ludlow - Brahms De Clermont


Brahms De Clermont should go very close in this maiden hurdle.

This gelding finished sixth to Poetic Rhythm in a decent bumper at Cheltenham last month. He lost his position well over a half a mile from home, and soon beat a hasty retreat. In truth this performance was a little disappointing, but he may not have handled the testing conditions. He had previously won two bumpers in good style on much better ground.

His astute conditioner is bound to have him ready for his hurdles debut, and he is fairly priced at 2.166/5 on the exchange.

Melrose Bay is the obvious danger. He finished a creditable third to Rolling Dylan in a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter and is bound to show improvement.


14:10 Ludlow - Hitherjaques Lady


I am going to take a chance with Hitherjaques Lady in this interesting race.

This mare finished down the field behind My Khaleesi in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham last month. She became outpaced five from home, but made some progress in the closing stages. She won a bumper in good style in the spring and clearly has ability. I think she will be suited by the extra yardage and represents value in the place market at 4.94/1.

Tara View is favourite in the win market at 2.767/4. She got up to win narrowly from Happy Diva over this course last month and must be considered. She has more to do under a penalty, but is open to a fair bit of improvement.
