Ludlow Racecourse Map

Right Handed: The chase course is two fairly long straights with sharp bends into and out of each. Relatively flat, there is a rise up to the end of the back straight, from which point it is a gradual descend to the finish. 

The hurdle course shares the home straight but the slightly undulating back straight is outside the chase track. It is about 150 yards longer than the chase course which is about 12f but this does not make the bends any easier. The fences are far from difficult and good jumpers may see them as no more inconvenient than a hurdle. Both courses have a near 2 furlong run in.

Ludlow Tips From The Racecourse

Ludlow being right-handed, looks for horses that have run at similar right-handed tracks especially those of a similar grade such as Carlisle or Leicester or dropping down a grade from tracks such as Sandown or Newbury.

The big trainers may have overfaced their horses at Sandown or Newbury and will find an easier level of a race at Ludlow. 

Ludlow has an excellent record for favourites winning which we expect is down to the class of trainer who sends horses a long way, the bookies know trainers who are travelling to Shropshire are looking for a win.
