Race of the Day - 13:30 Ludlow
We have a seven runner handicap chase over almost three miles to start the week, and with the outsider of seven currently priced at 10/1, it's a very open looking race.
Three Of A Kind is trained by Fergal O'Brien, and I seem to have mentioned him quite a bit recently. His form over the past month has been outstanding, with 12 winners from 43 runners for a level stakes profit of 35.39.
Paddy Brennan rides predominantly for O'Brien, and his record over the last month is obviously also great. He has ridden 17 winners from 45 runners for a level stakes profit of 59.40, which is excellent going.
Upbeat Cobbler has a nice full line of green on the Instant Expert tab, which is exactly what we want to see. He is looking for a four timer here today, which means he has risen up the weights quite significantly. He is a further five pounds higher today, but appears to be improving with each run, so I don't think the five pounds extra will be too much for him to handle. He is also at the top of the Speed Ratings, so looks to have a lot in his favour.
Nothing else looks good on this report, with only one section of green between the whole rest of the field.
Leaders at Ludlow over three miles have a great record, with almost a quarter of them going on to win, and from 86 runners leaders have retuned a level stakes profit of 47.09.
Upbeat Cobbler always travel very handily and looks likely to lead them off again today. He has a pace score that is far higher than anyone else, and if he gets a soft lead he may be prove very difficult to peg back.
The Trainer Jockey Combo Stats report highlights what I was talking about earlier with Brennan and O'Brien. In combination over the past month that have had 11 winners from 26 runners (42.31%) for a level stakes profit of 47.89. This really is incredible going and means any horse they team up with at the moment needs closer inspection.
