Two runners at Ludlow tomorrow in the 2 mile 5 maiden hurdle.  Both Big Fiddle and Stoney Cross were declared in a mares race at Wincanton last week but with it being called off, we have been forced to take the boys on tomorrow.

Big Fiddle has shown promise in two bumpers and I am sure will appreciate stepping up in trip.  She has an excellent National Hunt pedigree being related to Fiddling The Facts and has schooled well at home.

Stoney Cross also has a good pedigree but unfortunately stepped at the second last and came down on her previous visit to the course.  However, at home she has shown a good jumping technique and again she should benefit from the increase in distance.

Tom Bellamy and Brendan Powell take the rides and hopefully both mares will improve for the experience.

Delighted to announce that our long standing employee Faisal and his wife Aniqa have had a baby boy.   This is the first birth for Adlestrop Stables for a current employee.  Faisal has been a great addition to the yard since coming over from Pakistan some 10 years ago and all at Adlestrop look forward to supporting him now he has started a family.
