Almost An Angel (0.5pt EW 22/1)

Ran creditably well upped in trip last time out on handicap debut in a slightly above average race. Had previously put in a satisfying run behind a subsequent listed winner from the Mick Channon yard and on that evidence dropping back in trip here, eased a couple of pound could make this one look slightly overpriced as the yard start to find some form.

Meadowsweet (1pt win only 7/1)

Decent looking filly from connections that do particularly well here at Ludlow and a locally moreso in the bumper races. So when we see 7/1 for a fairly well bred runner from the yard entered up it’s pretty hard to ignore. Half sister to fairly useful sort in Emcon who herself was a bumper winner.

Hijack (1pt win only 11/2)

Disappointing last time out at Cheltenhamin a race that may have come too soon in not ideal conditions. Has non of those excuses here today however and is worth another try back slightly in trip and with underfoot conditions looking ideal. Both Nicky Henderson and Nico De Boinville travel here for just this one. Interesting.

Mack the Knife (0.5pt EW 20/1 4 places SkyBet)

Very disappointing in 3 starts for Jamie Osbourne and returns following a year out and having been purchased by new Trainer/Owner James Ferguson. Nice look to the breeding on paper with both Australia and Rock Of Gibraltar in the make up and is another interesting one on handicap debut from a basement mark.

William Hill Racing Radio Handicap Chase

Ballydonagh Boy (1pt win only 13/2)

The P Kirby favourite won well last time out but looks vulnerable from the 13lb higher mark in a more competitive event here. Slainte Mhor should fare better back down in trip and with conditions looking more suitable but still has a little to prove following a poor performance last time out so its another Chasing novice that we look towards in the form of Ballydonagh Boy. Looked in need of the run on Chasing debut but didn’t disgrace himself by any means. Steps up in trip here and if that plays to his strengths then much better can be expected in the hands of champion jockey Brian Hughes. Yard have a decent record and are profitable to follow too.

You Name Him (1pt win only 11/2)

Calivigny is somewhat of a mud loving CD specialist so its no surprise to see him at the head of the market here. He has also been in fine form too which means that he has very few secrets from the handicapper. Even a switch back to hurdles where slightly less exposed this could be a little bit of a stretch making him vulnerable to an improving sort. Leostar fits that description but has gone up 14lb for his latest success and also will have questions to answer in these conditions. Serious Ego has been hard to win with but drops markedly in class here for in form Ayr specialist Nicky Richards. Will he be ready to roll first time however remains to be seen. The chance we take is on another improving sort who has been unfortunate to take part in a couple of very hot races running into some very decent looking sorts. That said he has far from disgraced himself and although this opening mark is no gimme should have more to offer in this company.

Racing Tv Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

Meteorite (1pt win only 3/1) (NAP)

A fiercly competitive race with plenty of previous CD winners, horses down in grade and a couple of improving sorts all in the mix. Speredek is down again in grade to race in a C4 for the first time in over 3 years and has fallen to a dangerously low mark, yard have not been in the best form lately however so is possibly one for another day and depending on how he goes here on this softer ground will decide wether he may be one for the tracker. Aristo Du Plessis is another CD winner but is more miss than hit nowadays and you’d have to be confident that you have caught him on a going day to win from this mark, maybe in slightly stronger hands we would be giving him a squeek today but again one for another day. Coole Well is a very consistent performer who will certainly run his race again but struggles to get his head in front so will have his attitude tested today. Sarasota Star was found a race last time out but has been hit with an 8lb rise which will be hard to overcome upped in grade slightly. A similar story for Micky Hammond’s Applaus we feel too. Which brings us to the improvers. Amberose a 2 time CD winner who gets his conditions today and is sitting on around about the right sort of mark. Yard do well here and will be up there at the business end if able to bounce back from a poor run last time and finally the selection. Meteorite, one that is firmly on the up and despite recieving a 2lb rise in the weights for his reappearance run when finishing 2nd probably stil has more to offer than the rest of these. Drops in grade slightly with conditions in favour and comes here with the yard absoloutely of fire (5 wins from 8 in the last 14 days for a 63% strike) and goes in the very capable hands of Richard Patrick. The yards only runner sent on a 500 mile round trip and is the NAP selection

Llety Farms Handicap Hurdle

Rufio (1pt win only 3/1 ) (NB)

Nocte Volatus is entitled to head the market here but will not be getting it all his own way. His yard are going well and lost only to a subsequent winner last time out. Goes from the same mark here today and holds leading chances. The same however can be said for todays NB selection Rufio from the in form Harry Fry yard who also ran into one last time out and gets another try at the same weights. The form of the selections race however looks slightly stronger and this could be considered a drop in grade for a yard that have a good record here sitting at around a 25% strike, Sean Bowen takes the ride and he is also around the 25% mark in the last 12 months for the team. An outside danger may come in the form of Another Tuco who reverts back to the smaller obstacles today having had a miserable time of things over fences. His previous hurdles form shows that he is no forlorn hope from a massively reduced mark in first time blinkers which could spark some sort of revival. Yard not really firing however so would only warrant a small EW play at best.

Istadia Outdoor LED Screens Supports Racing Handicap Chase

Special Buddy 1pt win only 12/1 (IWAC)

The 3 at the head of the market all have some credit for being there but all have a few chinks in their armour and show some vulnerabilities. Ector put in an improved performance last time out when 2nd at Haydock but has gone up 3lb for that effort and sits on a mark that doesn’t really flatter him with his yard currently out of sorts. Venetia Williams has her yard going much better but Arqalina looks to be in the grips of the handicapper unless able to find some improvement, something that the reappearance run at Uttoxeter seems not to suggest Lex Talionis has been an unreliable sort for his previous yard but put in a fair effort on debut for the in form Oliver Greenall and will be entitled to have come on for that latest run. Much of his best form however has come on better ground and these deeper conditions today are not likely to suit. Sutters Mill is a big price from this much reduced mark and with 4 places available over at SkyBet was a very tempting proposition, yard not in the best of form however which is slightly off putting despite getting conditions to suit today. Special Buddy is an interesting one from the Ben Pauling yard who will be entitled to go much better today. Looked in need of last run and is still very lightly raced and open to bags of improvement. Yard do pretty well with the few that they send here (4 wins and 4 placed from 18 for a 22% strike) and with Darly Jacob booked for the ride we put this one as our IWAC selection today

Maelor Handicap Chase

Etilla De Sivola (1pt win only 8/1)

The short priced favouritehere is well worth taking on over this shorter trip and the selection who will hopefully have come on for his reappearance run looks the perfect candidate to take him on. J P L Ewart sends just this one runner down from the North and his record here is not a bad one with 2 wins and 2 placed from just 8 runners and a LSP of +30. Ideal conditions for this mud lark have come just at the right time and with the valuable 3lb claim of Fergus Gregory he is weighted to go close.

Geordielandgangsta (1pt win only 7/1)

Unexposed over these bigger obstacles and hails from a yard who have won 2 of the 3 runnings of this race. They come here in form and a record of 6 wins from 22 runners in the last 5 years for a SR of 27%. Plenty more to come from this one who is now eased a further 5lb and starting to look dangerously well weighted.

Now Look At Me (1pt win only 6/1)

Lightly raced and highly progressive 7 year old who has not been seen since falling in a much better race at Newbury almost a year ago. Since moved yards as a few from these connections have and if able to pick up showing the same sort of form as last term then should go very close from this mark. Lay off no rel issue as generally goes well fresh, remains to be seen what effect the fall at the back end of last yaer has had however.

Sir Peter O’sullevan Memorial Handicap Chase

Doctor Dex (1pt win only 10/1)

Made a very bright start to chasing career with a comfortable victory followed up by another solid effort at Kempton. Disappointed back at Kempton on Boxing day and has been wrapped up ever since. Sits on a fair mark for his reappearance this term for a yard going well and with a little proggresion should be giving the market principals something to think about here. Yard know how to get one ready so fingers are crossed.

Hang In There (1pt win only 9/1)

A top prospect last year after winning a G2 Novice event at Cheltenham before being pitched in at the deep end and just coming up short. Below that form this year so far but no forlorn hope eased in the weights here. Need to bounce back but yard are starting to get going now and better can be expected back up in trip.

15:00 Newbury 28 Nov 2020

Ladbrokes Trophy Chase

Copperhead (1pt win only 12/1)

Top prospect from a yard that warrants respect in this race winning 2 of the last 4 renewals. Latest reappearance run best ignored and should fare better back over these bigger obstacles. Slightly disappointing at Cheltenham back in March but that race may have come too soon after a fairly busy Winter. Entitled to have improved since then and looks to be on a fair mark if doing so.

Jabotica (1pt win only 4/1)

Made a very pleasing reappearance running out a 12 length winner in a fairly ordinary but tricky race at Warwick. Ran well enough next time when upped 7lb in the weights and was travelling very strongly making progress last time out before being very badly hampered. Was quickly pulled up once his chances were scuppered and has been turned out very quickly here. Coud have more to offer from current mark than some of his rivals and is well worth a punt today.

Evenstevens (1pt win only 6/1)

Finished a decent second over CD at the back end of last season and came home that day well ahead of todays favourite. Made a pleasing return to action and looked in need of the run in behind a couple of progressive sorts. Looks the sort to keep on improving gradually and will no doubt run his race again today. Cheekpieces on which could help to settle him down and this left handed track is sure to bring out the best in him. Dorado Dollar at the bottom of the weights is one to keep an eye on with a valuable 5lb taken off and the yard going well.

Pogue (1pt win only 4/1)

Dangerously well weighted coming into this on form comparisons to date. Will need to have come on for his latest run where he met with a very progressive JP McManus runner and holds every chance from the bottom of the weights in the hands of the champion jockey. Alan Kings runner The Unit could go close too after running into trouble last time out.

Espinator (0.5pt EW 25/1 5 places)

Ran well enough on yard debut following a switch from T Lacey and a 460 day lay off to suggest better can be expected today. Step up in trip here should play to his strengths and should run a bigger race than current odds suggest. Lively outsider.

Cepage (1pt win only 8/1)

Yard won this race 2 years ago for these connections and there are some stricking similarities in the approach this term. This 8 year old is very consistent and goes very well fresh. Will need to be tuned up for this from top weight but has won in similar company from just 1lb lower before. Yard do well here and certainly know how to get on ready so big run expected.

Charlie Longsdon Racing Club Handicap Chase

En Coeur (1pt win only 11/1)

Modest maiden who has been out there gaining some experience. Best run to date came in very testing conditions, similar to what he will get here today and with that in mind we take a chance on one that has been given a fair chance by the handicapper to get involved at a very generous price.

13:41 Taunton 26 Nov 2020

Newton King Estate Agents Handicap Hurdle

High Change (1pt win only 11/2)

Well bred horse going for a yard better known for their flat runners but looks to be one who is slowly getting to grips with his work. Probably has the pick of the form on offer judged by his latest run and doesn’t look harshly treated here on that evidence. Lightly raced but proggresing with each outing and ought to be able to play a hand in a race of this magnitude.

14:41 Taunton 26 Nov 2020

Stables Business Park Handicap Hurdle

Ballyhill (0.5pt EW 25/1 5 places Betfred/Skybet)

Seldom seen over these smaller obstacles in past couple of years but on a going day is just as effective over them. Last couple of runs have not shown him in his best light but he has been given a chance by the handicapper here in what looks a wide open race. A handy 5lb is taken off by Z Baker which puts this one on a mark that is impossible to ignore.

15:41 Taunton 26 Nov 2020

Porter Dodson Solicitors & Advisors Handicap Hurdle

Panatos (0.5pt EW 28/1 5 places Will Hill)

A decent reappearance effort when 3rd in not ideal conditions from a 2lb higher mark. Steps up in trip slightly which shouldn’t pose too many problems especially with the help of todays in form claim of 7lb from F Gillard. Still very lightly raced and already much improved from last season so a chance is taken at huge odds with an extra place available.

Walters Handicap Hurdle

Summer Name (1pt win only 6/1)

Made a very pleasing start to hurling career when winning here over the slightly shorter trip of 20F. Was going very well on reappearance this time too returning from 275 day absence and off the back of a wind op until 3 out where he slipped on landing losing all momentum. Drops in class here and goes in the hands of Sean Bowen who teams up well with a yard that need no introductions here.

Pennant Walters Handicap Chase

Delface (1pt win only 8/1)

Might just be able to stick it to the lesser experienced market principals here if the in form David Pipe has this one ready to roll. Enjoys some give in the ground and although a little tempramental on a going day is not badly treated from this mark. A runner up twice in the mud already and looks overpriced today.

15:30 Sandown 08 Nov 2020

Sandown Park Veterans’ Handicap Chase

Gold Present (1pt win only 7/1)

An ultra competitive Veterans handicap in which many of the runners have been cut little slack by the handicapper. The selection however sits just 1lb above a mark from which he beat Frodon. That run was a while back however and he has been off the track for almost a year. That said, this one goes well fresh and if the wind op has had the desired effect he could well turn back the clocks today.
