Daily Nap January 10: Isolate can make successful step up in trip

Planet Sport tipster Jonathan Doidge heads to Ludlow for his tip on Monday January 10 and he fancies an Alan King-trained runner stepping up in trip.

A field of seven go to post for this two and a half mile handicap chase on good to soft ground and the one I like here, who is trying this trip for the first time, is the Alan King-trained Isolate.

He's got Liam Harrison on board, who claims a useful 3lb, and his form has been pretty good so far.

He ran well at Kempton back in October, when winning over two miles and two furlongs on good ground. He flopped back there next time when he was upped slightly in grade, but last time out he showed a bit of a revival at Southwell.

I think the way he ran both there and at Kempton when he won suggested that this trip should be well within his compass. He handles soft ground as well, so in the 15:15 at Ludlow on Monday, the tip is Isolate.
