Spectators were given a taste of summer at Ludlow Racecourse on Thursday 2 April thanks to the warm, sunny weather. Despite the warm conditions, however, the going was soft (good to soft in places). Here is a quick roundup of those UK horse racing results.
First in the schedule was the 14:30 Novices Hurdle, which was won by joint-favourite Slowfoot (6/4) ahead of fellow favourite Jack Frost (6/4). A Good Skin then won the 15:00 Handicap Chase as favourite at 13/8. Broxbourne was marked the third-straight favourite winner at 2/5 in the 15:30 Mares Novices Hurdle.
Rio Milan (5/1) then managed to break the streak of favourites by winning the 16:00 Handicap Chase in front of favourite It’s A Steal (5/2). Next, Bombadero 2/1 registered the fourth favourite win of the day in the 16:30 Handicap Hurdle. Tugboat (8/1) took the 17:00 and Murrayana (5/2) took the 17:30.
