15:00 (Ludlow) El Saviour

El Saviour could be the answer to the Derek And Elaine Thompson 59th Celebration Handicap Hurdle.

There was much to like about his recent Warwick win when upped in trip and it makes sense to stick to that same two-mile-five-furlong distance here.

Legionar lost his way for the previous yard, but looks to be on a decent mark making stable debut. Won his novice hurdle by ten lengths in 2022 and booking Harry Cobden catches the eye.


15:30 (Ludlow) Jacamar

It is interesting to see Cobden pick up the spare aboard Jacamar in the Weatherbys Boyne Cup, with the nine-year-old a long way below his most recent success on ratings.

The main danger comes from Georges Saint who won twice tackling shorter trips earlier in the season. Likely has more to offer attempting the journey and is seriously considered racing for a stable in form.

One True King and Jet Plane should also make your shortlist.


16:00 (Ludlow) Passing Kate

Passing Kate can be forgiven her most recent outing at Hereford and the HR.Smith Handicap Hurdle looks much more her cup of tea.

Flat winner Balhambar improved to finish third at Huntingdon last start. That was his debut for Harry Derham and further progress is expected now switching to handicaps, so will be challenging for top honours.


16:30 (Ludlow) Iskandar Pecos

Iskandar Pecos produced a ready 14 length win tackling this trip at Leicester. Remains on the up and is fancied giving weight all round in the Weatherbysshop.Co.Uk Open Hunters' Chase.

Senior Citizen was well beaten making hunter chase debut in January. Likely to improve fitness-wise for that run. Key player based on the pick of his form among handicap company.

Before Midnight appeared to be struggling from his mark contesting handicaps earlier in the season. Switching to this sphere will make things easier.
