The Messenger has one bet on Sunday and he likes Workbench at Ludlow.
Ludlow 3.35: Workbench
This is the time of year for Workbench, and the right conditions with a flat, right-handed track on good going his optimum set up.
He had a busy summer in 2017, indeed racing right through until January of this year. Now one of Dan Skelton’s old stalwarts, he won twice last season, over hurdles at Fontwell and then putting his good jumping to fine use around Sandown in December.
He ran well here when second to the highly useful Speredek on softer going than ideal and should return refreshed from his winter break, coming back with his stable in much better form now.
1pt win – Workbench – 3.35 Ludlow at 9/2 with Ladbrokes
