Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Thursday; Nexius in the Ludlow 15:40. Compare odds and bet.
Despite his lack of experience and the fact stamina must be taken on trust NEXIUS (3:40) can land the feature handicap at Ludlow on Thursday.
A smart hurdler for Keith Dalgleish, when he always shaped as though this sort of trip would suit, the seven-year-old scored by 8 lengths at Doncaster last month on his second start over fences.
He again looked in need of further on that occasion and nine of the 15 fences were omitted, which again brings into question his experience as a chaser.
On a mark of 136 he does look potentially well treated, however, and Ludlow isn’t the sternest of jumping tests. He is the up and coming youngster in this line-up and can continue his progression – the selection was trading at 2/1 overnight.
3:40 Ludlow – Nexius; 2/1 bet365
