Ludlow Racecourse

That wasn’t the start Rich had hoped for now starting his Daily Nap, but he is undeterred and as always, onwards and upwards. Charlie return’s today & a Full blog, so with out too much fuss……. Charlie will kick us off today with his Wednesday Winners

Charlie…… Cheers Rich it’s nice to be back after a couple days rest, although I only found a couple I liked for Wednesday and instead of singles I’m advising a win double on the two selections as they are both 2-1 and at time of writing the double pays 8-1 with bet365 so let’s get straight down to those.


French Crusader -Won on debut at Huntingdon over 1m 5f back in November last year, was then sent to Doncaster in January to race over 2m and was 5th looks open to improvement and the step up in distance to 2m 3f 88y should suit.

Win Advised


War Creation -Has won Twice from last 4 runs finished 4th in the other two races, the first of those victorys came here at Ludlow back in April last year over 1m 7f, was then sent to Perth and finished 4th over 2m. Next race was at Bangor in October and finished 4th over 2m 3f. Latest victory came at Haydock in December over 2m 2f beating Dulce Panem by 6 length. Goes up In distance to 2m 5f and has been raised an extra 5lb for latest win but Ned Curtis claim of 5lb means it’s still on same mark as last time and another bold run looks likely.


Win Advised

.Well that’s my thoughts on Wednesday’s selections, Good luck if following and please remember to keep stakes small so it doesn’t hurt your pocket. I will now hand you over to Rich for His Nap and Final Word.


Rich’s Daily Nap  – 

Newcastle(AW) – Standard.

2.05 – Novice Stakes – Class 5 – 3YO Only – 1m 2f 42y

Native Appeal – Winner over 1m at Kempton(AW) on December 20th before finishing a 2 length runner up at this course over 1m in a Class 4  Novice Stakes on January 11th. Stepped up last time out to 1m 2f, when finishing 1/2 length runner up  at Lingfield on January 19th. Andrea Atzeni takes over the reigns from Tom Marquand – WIN 6/4

Tuesday’s Daily Nap – Warburton – 4th. Will win soon.

Final Word – 

Sadly, yesterday was a bit of a wash out and I am hoping for a lot better today. Although the highlight was Reine De Miracles finishing 3rd at odds of 33/1. I had backed it at 50/1 & looks like a bit of an improver by the way the race finished. So let’s see what tomorrow brings ….

Ludlow has a decent NH card and the 1.50 Maiden Hurdle over 1m 7f, I like the look of Donald McCain’s Pastoral Music, who finished 12 lengths runner up to Silver Conchord at Musselburgh on debut on December 18th, the winner has since won again and Pastoral, should improve from that first run. Could well out run the double figure odds( 10/1) when this was written.

A definite improver is Vocaliser(4.40) who has won 3 and finished runner up twice from the last 5 runs, winning the last two including last time out at Taunton over 2m 2f and is raised 5 for that win. Drops back to 1m 8f and looks to be heading the right way.

And finally at Punchestown,State of Nirvana(1.55) I have been following this horse since it’s debut 4th over C/D (2m) on November 3rd. Finished 3rd last time out on December 27th, in a 2m 2f maiden hurdle at Limerick on bottomless ground, although beaten by 32 lengths, the runner up was 7 lengths clear of State but has since won twice. Could well out run the double figure odds( 12/1) when this was written.

That’s all today Folks, thanks for popping by.

All the best Charlie & Rich
