Ludlow Tips and Racecourse Guide
The picturesque Ludlow racecourse, in Shropshire, is situated two miles north of the town. The course hosts 16 jumps meetings each year, between early October and May.
The tight, right-handed track suits horses that race prominently. TV coverage is provided by Racing TV.
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)

Only three runners for the 2m4f handicap chase (2.20pm) and with race fitness on his side, Muckamore might be able to record a third win of the season over fences. He is tactically versatile and has run well in cheekpieces the last twice, winning at Leicester before a...
The Princes Of Wales Amateur Jockeys' handicap chase is a competitive affair once again this year, but at a price I like the look of Valtor. Though he's now a 13 year old, there was lots to like about his fourth in a Listed handicap chase at Ascot in December, off a...
