Tote Placepot: Paul Kealy tackles a decent midweek card at Ludow
There have been strong signs recently that Harry Whittington has returned to form and his Qualismart (12.30) ought to be very hard to kick out of the frame in the opener at Ludlow.
He made a really bright start to his career at Market Rasen in November and ran too bad to be true next time. With Whittington's last five runners in February finishing 12311 he is worth banking on as that first run is much the best on offer.
In the next (1.00) I don't think Gaelik Coast needed to improve last time and he looks short enough in handicap company.
Adjali blew out on his chase debut at Hexham in October but his jumping was fine early and he ran well in a jumpers' bumper after a wind op last time.
He could prove in a different class but course winner Broken Quest, who could step up on his second outing for Matt Sheppard, goes in as cover.
The progressive Glory And Honour is the one to beat on his handicap debut in the next (2.40) but the last (3.15) is much more difficult and deserves more cover. Authorizo, Memphis Bleek and Remember The Man would be my three.
