Ludlow & Sedgefield Racecourse
1.15 - Fontana Ellissi - Three runs to date have all shown promise with a couple of third places in a bumper and a novice hurdle, plus a runners up berth upped to 2m 2f in an all-weather bumper. Upped in trip again to 2m 5+f over hurdles can bring out more in him and can again go close. Sam rides.
1.45 - Wicked Willy - Has found some form of late as he’s come down the handicap with a couple of places, both at Leicester over 2m 4+f. Down a further 4lbs to 115 today will again be a help over a furlong further. Jack Savage takes off a further 5lbs. Again each way prospects.
2.15 - The Newest One - Has shown some promise with a couple of mid-division finishes earlier this season and some placed runs previously. Has had some time off since November and returns in good order and a couple of pounds better off on 115. This 2m 4f should suit and expecting to see some more from him here. Sam aboard.
2.45 - Robinshill - Ran up a hat trick to start his season in fine style in a couple of handicap hurdles then a chase, two over today’s course and distance. Found the ground a bit heavy over the same last time but expected to go much better on today’s good to soft and can go close. Sam rides.
3.15 - Checkitout - Came good on the fifth time of asking over fences last time at Southwell with a nice win from a mark of 122. Up 8lb today, he goes over a similar 3m but still looks handily weighted receiving from 3 to 22lb from his three rivals. Hoping to take advantage here, a good run expected, Sam in the saddle.
3.45 - Just No Risk - Has gone well in a couple of Jumpers bumpers last two outings and returns to novice hurdle company. Needs to find a bit more but his experience to date taking him in the right direction and can show that progress and get involved here. Each way prospects. Sam rides.
