THE ADVISOR - Ludlow 3.20 Mares Novice Handicap Hurdle - Class 5 - 2 miles 5 and 1/2 furlongs - 12 run - Good to Soft
Coleenymore is a solid stayer who has had a run and who may just find the Going a bit too firm here and will definitely need every yard of the trip, my fear is it could just get tapped for speed at some point so not a win bet for me here. Hidden Belle and Masked Dance may need the runs and have stamina to prove and Only Fools is an ex Flat horse also upped in trip.
Happy Index just missed a nomination but one to TRACK, a Course and Distance winner off 74 on Good ground, seems OK on Good to Soft but a very poor return run suggests this may still be needed and all her best form is when Spring comes calling and I just feel there are a couple better in here today.
MILENIUM looks strong in the context of the race and should improve for a recent return. It's not quite got this trip in the past and has run a bit fizzy a few times but should be primed now and the one i think most likely to win
At bigger odds I'll have a shrapnel bet on SHIROCCOSMAGICBABY who has a good 3 mile P2P profile, has been runner up at 2 miles and 3 furlongs in February and who makes handicap debut off an interesting mark.
