7 Rides at Plumpton

Tom Cannon has a full book of rides today at Plumpton.


1:40 PSYCHE - COMMENTS

Just 1-21 on the Flat but ran well on AW last month; has possibilities on hurdle debut.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owner - L Gilbert.

Trainer - View - This lad never added to his 2yo maiden win on the flat but was

second at Lingfield (1m4f, AW, RPR 69) two weeks ago and has possibilities if

he jumps adequately on today's hurdling debut.

2:15 SALAMANCA SCHOOL - COMMENTS

Jumped well and made all to win by 14l over C&D last month; respected off 7lb higher mark.

Trainer - Warren Greatrex - Owner - As Sutch Partnership.

2:50 THE TIN MINER - COMMENTS

Consistent 11yo who lost out only by a nose over C&D last month; same mark today.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owner - Mrs B Ansell.

Trainer - View - Very consistent 11yo who lost out only but a nose to strong-finishing

stablemate (Blame The Game) over C&D (good) three weeks ago.

He had a hard race that day but is arguably a shade fortunate to have escaped with

an unchanged handicap mark and feels fresh at home.

3:25 ANNUAL INVICTUS - COMMENTS

Looked quirky here in January but, in general terms, he took very well to fences last term.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owner - Thomas Michael Smith.

Trainer - View - This lad made a very pleasing start to chasing career last autumn, most

notably when winning at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) he ran a very odd race when last of three

over C&D in January but first-time cheekpieces kept him focused in Grade 2 novice at

Ascot (3m, soft) in February, where he ran well until his stamina ebbed away, he should

be a contender if headgear continues to keep his mind on the job.

4:30 SAMI BEAR - COMMENTS

Rallied gamely to open account over slightly longer trip here last month; 6lb higher now.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owners - Team ABC.

Trainer - View - Sami got off the mark over hurdles at the sixth attempt last time

out rallying gamely to regain the lead on the run-in here (2m1f, good: front pair clear)

three weeks ago. He is now 6Ib higher but still in with a shout having come out of

that race well.

5:00 BLAME THE GAME - COMMENTS

Finished well for narrow hurdle win here last month but has poor record over fences.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owners - Redz Together.

Trainer - View - This lad pulled up in three of his five chases and was soundly beaten

on the other two occasions. He recently returned to form and rewarded Tom Cannon

after a determined ride when a narrow hurdle winner here (3m1f, good) three weeks ago

but still comes with risks attached on today's switch back to fences.

Has come out of that race well and is fresh so fingers crossed for another good run.

5:30 RED WINDSOR - COMMENTS

Appreciated good ground when nailed late over C&D in December; fair 3rd on soft since.

Trainer - Chris Gordon - Owners - Party People 2.

Trainer - View - This lad was suited by the ground here in December when he looked to

have sealed the race only to get nailed late by a fair yardstick. It was a respectable effort

on soft ground at Fontwell since but can improve back on a sound surface.
