Vale Riders Isabel And Jack Earn Ludlow Racing Double

Isabel Williams and Jack Tudor, who both  live in the Vale of Glamorgan, rode winners at Ludlow, writes Brian Lee.

Isabel, riding Burn Baby Byrne for her National Hunt trainer father Evan, scored a one-and-a-half

lengths win over Mabela in the Weatherbys TBA Mares’ Handicap Hurdle.

Jack was aboard the seven-year-old Hidden Charmer in the Heath Farm Magnus-Allcroft Memorial Open Hunters’ Chase.

He got his mount home by three parts of a length from Delegate, ridden by Ed Glassonbury.

Irish-bred bay gelding Hidden Charmer is trained by former Welsh champion point-to-point rider Nick Williams at Ogmore-by-Sea.

Nick is the younger brother of National Hunt jockey turned  successful trainer Christian Williams. 

Burn Baby Byrne was a 3-1 joint-favourite and Hidden Charmer was made 10-11 favourite.

The win by Isabel was the second leg of a double for Llancarfan’s Evan Williams, who had won the Templar Medical H4H Handicap Hurdle around an hour earlier.

Six-year-old Court Royale, an 11-4 shot ridden by stable jockey Adam Wedge, won by one-and-a-half lengths from Snap Dragon Fire, ridden by champion jockey Richard Johnson.
