Today’s racing tips for Ludlow, Southwell, Hexham and Kempton

NO NAY BELLA can make a perfect start for trainer Tom Ward with victory in the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Fillies' Handicap (8.15) at Kempton.

The four-year-old has shown her best form at the Sunbury venue, which included a double last November.

Off a 3lb higher mark for the most recent outing of those, she finished a length third in another staying handicap at the track before being purchased by current connections.

Given an eight-week break, the filly will have been freshened up by the change of scenery and her upward curve can continue.

At Hexham, CUDGEL is the selection in the Happy 30th Birthday Alex Morgan Jones Handicap Chase (4.45).

Jamie Hamilton takes the ride on the eight-year-old, the winner of two hurdles here at the end of 2020.

Over fences most recently, he finished close up and can continue his good run of form on faster ground this time.

Harry Skelton bids to keep up the momentum chasing his first jockeys' championship with several top rate chances at Southwell.

And the odds suggest he could leave with a treble, courtesy of the in-form COSTLY DIAMOND (1.15), FIRST CLASS RETURN (1.45) and ROCKSTAR RONNIE (2.50).

The last-named had plenty in hand over course and distance last time and is difficult to oppose despite the double penalty.
