From Aintree to….Plumpton.
The Daily Yankee:
Champion Chase, (1450 Plumpton), 11/2: Not a horse likely to end up running in his namesake, but he has looked an improver since switching to fences. His second here last time was a good effort and this free running sort may be much improved by meeting some better ground here.
No Hiding Place, (1520 Plumpton), 9/2: A maiden after five hurdle runs but has been a pretty good second on both handicap starts. For an inexperienced horse he may not Have appreciated firstly a conditional jockey then a military amateur. He gets Nico de Boinville today, and the jockey trainer combo come here off the back of a mighty Aintree.
Cap Horner, (1555 Plumpton), 9/2: Came good in style off a nice waiting ride at Taunton recently. Was kept to better ground over hurdles but hadn’t had that option in a wet winter chasing. Gets it here and run style should suit. May handle drying condition better than favourite Achille.
Baddesley Knight, (1730 Plumpton), 3/1: Has been placed in two bumpers and his second at Newbury last time was a particularly good effort, as was his close debut 3rd to two decent subsequent winners. Has Irish Odyssey to beat but he may find, as many do, that a winner’s penalty is too much to overcome, and the Henderson newcomer Voyage De Retour maybe the bigger danger, but both should be chasing Baddesley Knight’s shadow.
