And so we come to the final day of racing before we get to Christmas and the spirit certainly a bit more jolly after a decent day at Ayr yesterday. Ballycoose was a fine winner for the Crawford yard and hopefully we can get a little bit of luck at Ludlow this afternoon to fill those coffers for the racing from St Stephen’s Day and beyond. Also watch out for some ante-post selections, which will be coming your way both today and tomorrow for some of the big races at Leopardstown. 

In truth, I think the favourites will take a lot of beating in the first two races, so I’m opting for the 1.15 as my first race of the day, and it’s the 2m5f mares maiden hurdle. I was very disappointed by the last two runs from Runwiththetide, who looked like a good type when finishing second on hurdling debut at Chepstow. If she was to return to that form, in this sort of race, she would have to have a big chance. She won a PtP in Ireland, before finishing an honorable second to Nina The Terrier at Chepstow, and I have been shocked to see different tactics employed the last twice rather than allowing her to bowl along in front. Perhaps with more positive tactics today, she could show some of that spark that showed at Chepstow. At a general price of 12/1, she is an each way selection. 

The 1.45 race is the feature race on the card and this 2m handicap chase sees a strong field of seven going to the post. There are plenty of these in with strong chances on their best form and the prices would indicate that one shouldn’t rule anyone out too easily. I am going to take a chance on a return to form for the likeable Gumball, who is another horse that did not benefit from a change of tactics last time out at Newbury. His run there as a result was a non-starter and can in essence be scratched from the form book. His previous efforts would give him a strong chance in this type of race and also this track promises to suit him very well if going out near the front rank. Both Coral and Ladbrokes are paying out 3 places in this race despite there only being 7 runners, and I’m going to take advantage of that. Gumball is perhaps a short price to back each way at 9/2, but I would be very disappointed to not see him fill the frame. 

And the final selection of the day comes in the 2.15 race, which is another handicap chase but this time over the staying distance of 3m. This is again a seven runner affair but on this occasion, I can’t really see past the first two in the betting, as they both bring strong form to the table and both probably have a little bit more juice to squeeze from their current handicap ratings. However, I will be siding with the stronger stayer of the two, and that’s The Newest One, who is back with Sam Twiston Davies on board. He won a race at Doncaster last time out that fell apart in behind and despite that not being the strongest form ever, he showed good grit and tenacity to stay on gamely. He is not the most straightforward of jumpers, but he is a decent horse and can take another step up here in this race. At a general price of 5/2, he should go very close.
