Ludlow for Trogs.
Stuart has the unenviable task of the long trip to Ludlow this afternoon with Troglodyte. Troggy has been out of form recently, but at home he seems to have found some of his old enthusiasm and we hope that he runs his race this afternoon. The race is part of the development series for young jockeys, and all of the boys riding today must not have ridden more than 25 winners, so Mrs Robeson has booked the services of Richie McLernon, who is attached to Jonjo O'Neills yard. He looks like a good lad, so let'hope he gets a good spin out of Troglodyte. The likely winner of the race looks to be Alan Kings Ballingaddy - this Irish point to point winner is upped in trip and sports first time blinkers for his handicap debut - usually a sign that they mean business, at 10-1 tissue price he looks massive value!!
