Overview for Thursday - please scroll down to the bottom of the page
1.35: TARA VIEW is yet another Alan King novice/maiden hurdler to respect, this being the time of year when Alan excels with such inmates. Tom George cannot do a great deal wrong just now and OVERAWED could outrun her odds, albeit Tom’s more experienced runners tend to rule the stable.
Favourite factor: This is a new race on the Ludlow card.
2.05: Martin Keighley is back among the winners and his Kayf Tara raider QUANTUM OF SOLACE can supplement his September Uttoxeter success back in September. Two of the three Tim Vaughan entries can offer most resistance at the business end of proceedings, namely SHOW’S OVER & CHAKISTO.
Favourite factor: This is another new event on the Ludlow programme.
2.35: Four and five-year-olds have secured 16 of the 20 available toteplacepot positions between them with five-year-olds leading 4-2 from a win perspective. The pick of the relevant runners on this occasion will hopefully prove to be BALLYHILL and MOSCATO. The overnight reserve nomination is awarded to CRANK EK UP.
Favourite factor: Four of the nine market leaders (three of them won their respective races) have secured toteplacepot positions to date.
3.05: Five time winner BIG CASINO represents the in-form yard of Nigel Twiston-Davies and with good ground likely to be in evidence, Nigel’s ten-year-old can supplement a recent Stratford success, especially with Ryan Hatch claiming his useful three pound ‘edge’ from the saddle. Connections might have most to fear from ADAM DU BRETEAU and MOSS ON THE MILL.
Favourite factor: The three favourites to date have secured one gold medal and two of the silver variety.
3.35: Regular readers will know my feelings about amateur rider events, whereby my tentative duo against the remaining twelve contenders consists of BRING BACK CHARLIE and MIDNIGHT GYPSY. Thank goodness for the three days at Prestbury Park which is on the horizon now!
Favourite factor: Two of the three market leaders (both winners of their respective events at 9/4 & 7/2**) have claimed Placepot positions.
4.05: LORD HUNTINGDON was running well enough against an in form rival in Cliffs Of Dover when coming down at Kempton and though Alan King’s raider would not have won that day, the form line suggests he will have too much speed for SISANIA in this grade/company.
Favourite factor: The four favourites to date have secured three gold medals and one of the silver variety alongside toteplacepot positions.
All place details offered on my pages relate to an 'exact science', whereby horses that finish third in 5/6/7 runner races (and other such scenarios) are not 'placed' regarding my statistics.
