Two to Ludlow and one at Haydock today.
2.05 - We run two in this race. Better Days won nicely last time out at Kempton in October and steps up here, going from bottom weight. Had shown steady improvement and looks to have more to come. This trip and ground really suits and with Zac Baker claiming 5lbs, he looks to have a good each way chance. Wicked Willy won on his seasonal reappearance and chasing debut at Huntingdon in October over a furlong shorter, going clear in the process. He was raised 11lbs for that to 132 and subsequently pulled up last time at Exeter. Back Down 3lbs today will help and with track and ground also in his favour, can also go close. Jamie Bargary in the saddle.
3.05 - Ravensdale was second on his bumper and rules debut at Southwell at the end of October and now makes his hurdles bow upped in trip to 2m 3f. Looks likely to improve somewhat for the obstacles and has a good chance of opening his account here. Daryl Jacob aboard.
