Ludlow Racing Tips

3.14: Itso Fury 10/11 (NAP)

The five-year-old gelding by Fame And Glory was against the grain last night, but he had continued support into the early hours and could still shorten further.

Unsurprising too, given his victory last time out on his hurdles debut after a break and could enter this one even better from a top court.

He also claims a victory over this distance and Jonjo O’Neill will surely win this five-runner contest.

Sedgefield Racing Tips

1.12: The Churchill Lad 11/8 (NB)

The favorite here, Jipekaa Machin, drew plenty of support to remain the favorite, but only marginally for The Churchill Lad.

And it’s close for a number of reasons with various unknowns for both horses ahead of the other five riders in what should be a game by the end.

But the favorite is easily opposed on the grounds that the tip has already won over the hurdles, and by considerable distance to Cartmel on the last start.

He was entered in a tough Class 2 in September but escaped before the start – showing there is potential for a decent outing over hurdles.

Newbury racing tips

1.55: Huelgoat 13/8

Paul Nicholls’ horses have been in great shape lately and he has clearly placed the right horses in the right races too with 12 of his 32 runners winning over the past two weeks.

It shouldn’t stop there with this horse from the owners group who can add to the win from the same trainer and same syndicate group with his Stage Star winning hunt debut on Tuesday.

Huelgoat also ran very well with three runs over fences and three wins.

He took an even further step last time out beating Jeffery’s Cross by 13l at Fontwell and will make another try at a similar distance at which he seems to thrive.

3.05: Annual Invictus (place) 6/4

Was available at a much higher price last night and has now seen interest where punters are seeing his form over hurdles could be a key factor.

The annual Invictus hasn’t been seen over the hurdles since February 2021 and although his hunt has gotten off to a good start, he may reappear to great effect on the same mark that saw him fourth in the Betfair Hurdle from 3rd year on this course.

It’s unclear if he’ll be able to fend off favorite Didtheyleaveuoutto in JP McManus’ silks but there’s a lot that can happen on the 3m trip and for a few they might need that race.

3.42: The Chameleon 5/1

Won his first run for Jane Williams and looks set to continue his upward trajectory.

Beat Northern Bound last time out and this rival also moves up 3lbs from finishing second with just a 1lb deficit today.

Fairly open contest this one and 5/1 for a horse that is fit and has just won recently when most others are fresher but may also need a race.
