There was plenty to like about the way Ben Buie went through the race on his seasonal reappearance at Worcester earlier this month. He was ultimately well beaten that day, but shaped as though he would come on plenty for the run.
A dual winner on a sound surface and on right-handed tracks in November/December, he should have more to offer from his current mark. A lightly-raced eight year old, he is open to further improvement this summer and represents a yard in fine form.
This track should suit him very well and he is the one to beat today.
RECOMMENDED BET: 4.05pm Ludlow – Ben Buie win @ 9/4 (most firms, 11/4 in places)
