Wednesday 22nd December

If you took the advice and backed GRAND MORNING to 4th place yesterday you will have had a small each way return and Anthony ran a decent race too as predicted at Plumpton.
 
It's similar fare today too to be honest, an NH Card at Ludlow and a couple of moderate AW Meetings.
 
So, in advance of a 3 day break and with the prospect of some fantastic Racing from Sunday for a week we'll leave you with a couple of each way pointers at Ludlow for an each way double for anyone fancying a last small Flutter before the holidays.
 
In the 12.15 Amateur lady Jockey Race there is an Odds On favourite from Ventia Williams who targets the race seemingly with winners in 2 of the past 3 runnings. That stretches the market and offers some each way value and there are probably 3 at nice prices that offer the most hope of a placing at decent current odds.
 
Both Evan Williams and Donald McCain have excellent young daughters riding very well and Evan sends over VODOO DOLL who runs off a nice mark with a Visor back on, an aid that has worked in the past. Donald sends MORRAMAN another on a nice mark who seems to run best on flat right handed tracks like this and it's hard to split them. 
 
If we throw the veteran Henryville into the mix it's an interesting choice. 
 
If we take out the odds on Green Book we narrowly favour; VODOO DOLL over Morraman and Henryville
 
In the 1.15 a Novice Hurdle we think there are 3 who are overpriced, SABRINA from the Paul Nicholls yard possibly had a wind issue last time on a day when the ground was sticky at Exeter, if we look at the horses profile it should run much better here The in-form Skelton Team send RUNWITHTHETIDE an ex 3 mile P2P winner who has placed in a couple of decent novice Hurdles. There is also another interesting ex P2P recruit in HOLLY HARTINGO from the locally based Alastair Ralph yard who could be an unexposed dark horse to outrun big odds too.
 
On balance and with the small health niggle over Sabrina, we'll side with RUNWITHETIDE over Sabrina and Holly Hartingo.
 
If you wish to have shrapnel e/w singles on any of those you now know our preference , the suggested bet is a small each way double on VOODOO DOLL and RUNWITHTHETIDE.

It only leaves us all at SP2A to wish you all a HAPPY, HEALTHY and SAFE Christmas and we'll be back on BOXING DAY Morning at around 9.00am.
 
Happy Christmas
