Our top tipster has a trio of selections for Ludlow's seven-race card on Wednesday which will be shown live on Racing TV.

3.31 Ludlow: Florrie Boy at 11-1 with William Hill and Bet 365

A race full of questions but perhaps Florrie Boy has less to answer than some and looks the one to be on at 11-1.

He returned from a lengthy absence with a decent run over hurdles at Wetherby last time out where he showed enough to suggest he retained plenty of ability.

He is back over fences here and has shaped with promise on more than one occasion. He was only beaten a couple of lengths by the now 140-plus rated Shantou Village on his final start before his absence.

He runs off 119 here and he won off 127 over hurdles, so he looks fairly treated.

4.40 Ludlow: Demopolis at a general 11-4

Demopolis caught the eye last time out

Has been a huge disappointment since he joined Philip Hobbs from France and has dropped from a mark of 136 to 100.

However, he looked like a winner waiting to happen last time out in soft ground at Exeter. He was held up out the back but made eye-catching headway without troubling the well-backed winner.

If he cannot win off this mark on recent evidence, things really have gone awry. I expect him to be well supported here, too.

5.10 Ludlow: Treasure Dillon at 15-2 with William Hill

Things have not gone at all well for this horse this season but there is no doubt he has the ability to win off his rating, and possibly higher ratings when things go right.

I was part of a big each-way gamble when he ran at Cheltenham in November and the place money at least looked safe until he twisted on landing at the second last and lost too much ground.

He then fell here when in with every chance before running an unusually bad race last time out. The handicapper has seen he is still capable, so has not dropped him much, but that is not the point with this one, he just needs the breaks.
