QUITE an interesting and varied week ahead, with the three-day Craven meeting at Newmarket in midweek, followed by Ayr’s Scottish Grand National fixture.
The Flat turf season has gone off like a damp squib and we’ve three moderate jumps meetings on heavy ground to contend with again today.
BADDESLEY KNIGHT (5.30) should give us a run for our money in the Plumpton bumper. Chris Gordon’s gelding chased home the Nicky Henderson-trained Morning Vicar at Newbury which sets a reasonable standard.
Hot favourite Irish Odyssey hacked up at Fontwell from the moderate Dancing Doug (runs in opener) and has a 7lb penalty to carry.
