Today’s horse racing preview selections all come from Ludlow racecourse.
14.30 Ludlow – EPDS Racing Partnerships Supporting Racing Welfare Handicap Chase
Fly Home Harry (105)
Emma Lavelle’s new recruit Barlow looks well ahead of his current level of ability. the once Warren Greatrex in-mate has been spending a lot of time in races that have either been over a lot further or in and around the novice ranks. Steps back in to this company once more and looked better suited around this sphere when finishing third at Newton Abbott in this caliber of character.
Both Fly Home Harry & Flashjack have not shown nothing resolutionary, however Fly Home Harry represents a shrewd plotter in Charlie Longsdon who was amongst the winners yesterday. Flashjack could be the danger to the selection.
BARLOW : 3pt Win @ 6/1 (BOG)
15.00 Ludlow – KLF Insurance Brokers & Brian Challenor Memorial Chase (Novices Limited Handicap) (0-135) (16f)
Colin Tizzard’s Valhalla looked in need of a run when finishing third of five at Stratford, he always looked within himself jumping like a stag, until a bad error at the last cost him dearly on the run in, he should strip fitter for that and on paper warrants respect under Harry Cobden, however the selection Darebin ran a solid race after a six month lay off when going behind by three and a half lengths over course and distance.
Assessing the race on a re-run I think Jamies Moore should have pressed on when he came up sides into the straight, there still looks a few pounds to play with here now chasing. Best of the rest, Ian William’s Kapstadt has run two solid placed runs this season and should also have a good campaign this year, but Jamie Moore very strong in the saddle, rode a good winner yesterday so in form.
DAREBIN : 2pt Win @ 11/4 (BOG)
