511-5OR: 129
10/11

French import, made short work of a maiden hurdle at Plumpton (2m, soft) last month on debut for this yard. Likely to mount another bold challenge here.

5/4

Off the mark at the sixth time of asking over jumps at Plumpton (2m, heavy) last month in similar contest. Should be able to get in the mix again from the front end.

710-12OR:
33/1

Winner of a claimer in Ireland over 1m2f on good to firm all the way back in September 2014, hasn't been sighted on track for 852 days ahead of first jumping test / debut for new connections. One of two for trainer.

510-12OR:
50/1

Won a 7f Musselburgh maiden in September 2015 for Mark Johnston but has proved fairly modest on the Flat since. Second runner for the trainer in this line-up and likely best watched for now.

Enrique gelding is a half-brother to three winners, two over jumps in France, but has not shown enough in bumper / novice hurdle runs at Plumpton to merit confidence for this. Drops in trip.

1010-12OR:
16/1

Promising winning point-to-pointer in 2014 but has an absence of 1180 days to overcome here in belated racecourse bow now aged 10. Tongue tie applied on first run for this yard. Betting check suggested.

510-12OR:

Modest efforts in hurdles outings at Hereford and Chepstow in testing ground recently, will need a decent chunk of improvement to get involved at the business end now.

Betting

Forecast

Distingo (10/11), Jaisalmer (5/4), Mighty Vic (16/1), Russian Spy (25/1), Don't Tell George (33/1), Chocolate Diamond (33/1), Daleelak (50/1)

Verdict

No surprises if this comes down to a duel between last-time-out Plumpton scorers DISTINGO and Jaisalmer, with preference for Gary Moore's charge. He made an impressive start on his first run after arriving from France when taking a maiden in ready fashion and is open to further progress. Jaisalmer was getting off the mark at the sixth time of asking over jumps and will pick up the pieces if the selection fails to fire. Hard to get enthusiastic over the remainder, perhaps this shorter trip will be of benefit to Don't Tell George, who is at least race-fit.
