Scots Gold (1.00 Ludlow)

Eldrickjones (1.55 Nottingham)

Outonpatrol (2.05 Ludlow)

Grenoble (3.05 Nottingham)

Dazzling Glory (3.23 Sedgefield)

Raffles Gitane (5.05 Sedgefield)


1.00 Ludlow - Scots Gold

The talented Skelton brothers are slowly creeping up the trainers in form column as their Autumn campaign gets underway in earnest.

Scots Gold can add an early winner on Wednesday having finished second on both of his 2021 appearances.

The three year-old found only Stuart Edmunds' Addosh too good at Market Rasen over two miles but the well bred Dark Angel gelding has been patiently handled by Dan Skelton and can on come for his Summer work.

With both the drying ground and trip in his favour plus family favourite Harry Skelton up top, Scots Gold can show a glint of talent to take this Class 4 hurdle.

2.05 Ludlow - Outonpatrol

A winner at Ludlow in May, Alan King's Outonpatrol has a touch of progression about her and can take this field of inconsistent winners.

The seven year-old mare has been gradually upped in trip to three miles after winning an Irish maiden at that length when trained by Sean Doyle.

A third last time out at Bangor-On-Dee was no disgrace, keeping on well but just lacking the pace to keep up with Flying Verse who went on to win again at Kelso.

This small runner heat at a track of previous success should bode well for Outonpatrol and with conditional Alexander Thorne taking off five pounds the weight should be a lot kinder.

Outonpatrol can put in an arresting performance to take this one for the talented King outfit.

3.23 Sedgefield - Dazzling Glory

Bridget Andrews is an underrated talent within Team Skelton and gets the task of steering Dazzling Glory to victory in this novices' hurdle.

The mare capped out Spring with two nice wins at Northern track Hexham, showing plenty of guts along the way.

Dan Skelton's six year-old won over three miles when formerly trained in Ireland, suggesting Wednesday's two mile four furling trip shouldn't test the legs too much.

A third over two miles, half a furlong on September 25 at Market Rasen will have done little harm and with the step up in trip and the useful Andrews aboard, Dazzling Glory has the potential to be an eye-catcher in a modest Sedgefield race.

5.05 Sedgefield - Raffles Gitane

Another of the up and coming younger national hunt trainers, Harry Whittington sends Raffles Gitane, last seen in a Cheltenham Group 3, to Sedgefield for his first pop over fences.

From the portfolio of top owners Munir and Souede, the four year-old filly is a French import and has performed well with a win and two third places since joining Whittington in Oxfordshire.

Raffles Gitane took a fillies' maiden at Hereford in February and was considered good enough for the step up to Group 3 company at Cheltenham in April, finishing a solid third at jumps HQ.

With reasonable form and a tendency to keep on, as long as her jumping is up to scratch, Whittington's four year-old can give market leader Jamacho something to think about in terms of class.

This Gitane can put in a smoking showing at Sedgefield.

1.55 Nottingham - Eldrickjones

The clear pick on the basis of a solid second in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot and a good fifth in the Gymcrack at York in August, this Roger Fell entry should have too much for his Class 5 rivals at Nottingham.

Although not to his best when winning a maiden last time out at Pontefract, the winning distance was still two lengths and the Cotai Glory colt has the ability to kick on when push comes to shove.

The soft ground at should be alleviated somewhat by a warm and breezy day in the East Midlands and with Mark Crehan, victorious on board at Ponty last time out, claiming three pounds, it could be another race where Eldrickjones has the quality to do just enough to get over the line in front.

3.05 Nottingham - Grenoble

The alpine city of Grenoble is famous for being the birthplace of legendary wrestler Andre the Giant and William Haggas' two year-old can put in a huge performance here.

Holding an entry for the upcoming Group 1 Vertem Futurity, Grenoble was second on his opening appearance at Yarmouth behind a decent Gosden type in Find.

This Siyouni colt should handle the soft conditions at Nottingham and can pip the front running Johnston entry Approachability under a well timed Tom Marquand ride, if living up to the Futurity billing.

Grenoble is one to grapple with this Wednesday.
