Just the one runner on Wednesday with Zalvados looking to hold a massive chance in the opening race on the card at Ludlow. He is yet to win in 9 starts over hurdles but has ran to a very high level in defeat including when placed at Aintree and Cheltenham. He arrives here on the back of arguably his best effort to date when he was beat just a head by a ultra progressive type in a class 2 handicap at Haydock. Hopefully he will deservedly get his head in front tomorrow. Ian Popham takes the ride.
