Southwell & Ludlow Racecourse
Nigel Twiston-Davies two runners at Southwell Racecourse at one at Ludlow Racecourse, with good ground at both tracks.
1.15 - Larch Hill (Sam Twiston-Davies) Won on his chasing debut at Market Rasen a year ago from a mark of 107 but up 6lbs for that and a fall a couple of outings later halted progress. Has had a couple of selling hurdle outings mid-season but a break since November and a return to fences will hopefully bring about a return to form. On a good mark 2lbs below his last winning one, can get back in his stride here with each way prospects.
3.20 - Luckofthedraw (Archie Bellamy) Hasn’t been out over hurdles for almost four years but returns to the smaller obstacles today. Has run some good races over fences during that time including a couple of wins from marks of 129 & 125. Kept on the go of late with two all weather flat outings, he comes in to this on a handy looking mark of 120. Archie takes off 7lbs and the pair look to have each way prospects.
2.00 - Ballymoy (Daryl Jacob) Won at long odds on last time out at Catterick three weeks ago. Meets another small field of five rivals but this looks much more competitive this time. Still looks well handicapped though despite giving weight to his rivals, enjoys these 3m trips and goes on any ground. Very hopeful he can continue the good work and another good run expected.
