It’s back to normality with a mundane Monday featuring Ayr, Plumpton and the dirt at Wolves.
These can be tricky days in which to find a bet, but we are very happy to pin our colours to the mast of one at Plumpton.
The 3m handicap hurdle (1430) looks reasonably open at first glance with Camron de Chaillac, King Uther and Clondaw Bisto all vying for market lead.
Camron broke an 11 race duck when recording a first win at Taunton. He needs to prove himself at this trip and the win edges him back up to a lifetime high of 109, the very mark off which he’d long-term struggled to win.
Clondaw had become pretty disappointing before a decent 3rd of 12 at Exeter in mid November. A 2 month break doesn’t sound like a tactical move and he had again crept back up in the ratings to the mark off which he’d been struggling.
Of the lead three, it’s King Uther who looks to have much the most compelling profile. He has won 2 of 11 starts including a heavy ground win at Lingfield last March. His two runs over 3m this season, 4th on soft at Exeter and 3rd on soft at Uttoxeter are head and shoulders above the rest here, and he may well improve again given his lightly raced profile.
His mark of 114 remained unchanged after those creditable runs and he gets a confident vote to emerge by far the best of the market leaders.
Recommendation: King Uther, (1430 Plumpton), 1pt win, 4/1 Bet365
