Not much time today, I have been spending too much time on the sale of Liverpool FC. Good news? Who knows.
There are a couple of decent jumps meetings today, with a good class 3 chase at Ludlow over 3-mile at 3:20. Tritonville Lodge could prove very hard to beat as his latest run when 2nd to Mad Jack Duncan looks good form as that horse has won again since off a mark 9lb higher and is due to race off OR112 - which is 16lbs more than when he beat Tritonville Lodge. Current odds of 11/2 look very fair for this lightly raced chaser. There are questionmarks about a lot of these, and so I quite like the chance of Whataboutya from Jonjo O'Neill. I believe he has a much better chance than the 11/1 currently quoted as he has run well in his past couple of races and todays trip and going will suit him.
At Towcester, there is usually a decent winner of the novice chase, and Michael Flips should oblige today, but his odds of 10/11 are too short for me. I am more interested in the hurdle at 3:30. Trainer, Charlie Egerton has a great record at Towcester (3 wins from 4 runners over hurdles) and his only runner today is a Group 3 winner on the flat ART DECO. His latest hurdle run (his 3rd) was a much improved effort, and this could be his day to get his head in front as there is a lot of deadwood in this race. Odds of 12/1 suggest an eachway wager.
That's my view on today's racing. No time really to make a firm selection, and what I will be doing is having a small eachway double on:-
Towcester 3:30 ART DECO @ 12/1, and
Ludlow 3:20 WHATABOUTYA @ 11/1
