16.40 Ludlow 2m Novice Handicap Chase 

A chance is taken on the Phillip Hobbs trained Demopolis to gain his first win since joining the yard 2 years ago. A winner over hurdles in 2018 at Auteuil in France for Guy Cherel this 6-year-old has not reached the heights connections would have hoped for. He achieved a rating of 130 Hurdles and now his attention is turned to the larger obstacles where he gets in here off a mark of a 100. He showed a revival of form somewhat 3 weeks ago at Exeter when finishing fourth beaten less than 6 lengths after showing up well for a long way. The switch to fences looks a shrewd move from Hobbs and he could easily exploit this mark of 100 with a clear round. This looks like the easiest contest he has contested to date and connections faith should be restored with a clear round here.

Tip: Demopolis To win (11/4)


14.10 Punchestown 2m4f Maiden Hurdle

This looks like a wide-open Maiden Hurdle with a tentative vote given to the Willie Mullins trained Lucky One. The 5-year-old son of 2007 Derby Winner Authorized has yet to race for Mullins after being purchased from Guillaume Macaires yard in France by Jared Sullivan in 2018. He had been the subject of good reports by O’Sullivan at the start of the National Hunt Season in a stable tour, and was put forward as a horse to follow for the coming season. He has been opposed by stable jockey Paul Townend, who partners stablemate Fils Spirituel, however, he hasn’t set the world alight in 3 recent runs over obstacles and looks opposable. Mullins is a master at readying these French recruits first time up after long layoffs and the selection can enhance that stat.

Tip: Lucky One To Win (11/2)

16.05 Ludlow 2m7f Maiden Hurdle

Paul Nicholls looks to have another bright staying prospect in the shape of Southfield Harvest. He is from a very good family that Nicholls knows well, as he is a half brother to both Southfield Theatre and Southfield Vic. He won a bumper at Chepstow last April beating a good horse of Nigel Twiston Davies Stolen Silver now rated 143 by a neck. He returned last month at Wincanton where he finished 2nd behind an improver of Fergal O’ Briens Hurricane Harvey. That race is working out well with the 3rd St Barts bolting up last weekend at Ascot in his first handicap. The extra 2 furlongs on offer here should suit Nicholls charge as he is ultimately a stayer in the making and he should be able to get the better of another Twiston Davies inmate Muckamore.

Tip: Back Southfield Harvest To Win (11/8)
