Ludlow yesterday was quiet, people wise. Not one of their biggest meetings but still 62K of prize money of offer which is more than either Newbury or Doncaster produce today.
Aliandy probably showed the effects of a hard race at Taunton last time but having said that the ground yesterday was terribly holding and that would certainly not have helped; he finished 4th and will have a short rest now.
Gallery Exhibition too hated the ground and hopefully the handicapper will now finally drop him in the weights. Both horses are fine this morning.
Talking this morning Charbel and Robin The Raven worked. Both heading to Cheltenham hopefully.
Harry Topper and Tom Bellamy jumped fences.
Paul Woakes and Allan Banner were here for a morning on the gallops and breakfast as booked through CD Tours.
