Ludlow’s NAP: UNDERSUPERVISION | 2:05pm Margaret Roberts Rememberance Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

Nigel Twiston-Davies’s point winner makes his chase debut in a competitive-looking handicap in Shropshire.

Nigel Twiston-Davies has three runners on Ludlow’s Wednesday card

He ran creditably over hurdles on three occasions last season, including when winning at Hereford in December, before finishing a decent second at Warwick when last seen in February.

Given his form in the amateur sphere, he should be the type to make a better horse over fences and is taken to land the odds at the first time of asking.

NB: SACRE COUER | 1:30pm Teresa’s Boutique Mares’ Handicap Hurdle

A new recruit to Jackdaws Castle, the French recruit makes her yard debut for Jonjo O’Neill in what will be only her second appearance over hurdles in Britain.

She finished third in the Sussex Champion Hurdle behind some strong rivals and is 2lb lower here now back against her own sex.

The absence of Litterale Ci helps her cause and she looks the one to beat if able to transfer her form from across the English Channel to this sphere.
