A bit of a mixed bag on Saturday. One great race when I had TIDAL BAY (9-1) and ROALCO DE FARGES (7-1) both e/w in the Bet 365. I thought RDF had a better chance but I couldn’t leave old Tidal out, I’ve followed him every race since his novice days. Was great to see him run again to the standard that he can. He jumped beautifully throughout, RDF is a stayer to note for the future too!
So, here are the runners at Ludlow and a nap at Navan.
MAD FOR ROAD 1635 NAVAN – (nap) (unplaced) hails from a top yard, which is in form. Some decent form and looks like one that will train on and improve. Decent draw, chance! (6 point win)
SONG SUNG BLUE 1625 LUDLOW – (nb) (NR) won well at Sandown over 2m in Feb and then didn’t really stay next time there. Aintree’s race was too hot for him and this race is much more up his street. (2 point win)
CLARION CALL 1550 LUDLOW – (treble) (unplaced) still awaiting his first win, should have done so at Towcester, and then fell when leading and would have won at Hereford. Ascot was too hot for him, this I’m hoping is where he will lose his duck! (1 point win)
STAKE = 9 points
RETURNS = 2 points for NR
BANK = 57.5 points
