Tim Vaughan – Ashford Wood 31st Jan 2017 3rd 10/1 – Lingfield Park

Plugged on well to take third at 10/1. Original quote: “Ashford Wood – A lot to prove at the moment after refusing last time out at Sedgefield and so far well below his hurdles form over fences. On a plus, the ground will suit and we’ve given him 2 months off, while this is also a drop in grade. Certainly capable off this sort of mark as won off 120 over hurdles, but just depends if the horse wants to run of if he’s given up a bit. If he does then, as I say, has everything in his favour today so could pop into a place at a price – small each-way.”
