Plumpton Booked Rides

Tom, has a full book of rides at Plumpton today, all for trainer

Chris has a 15% strike rate with his hurdlers showing a +8.98

and a 18% strike rate with his chases showing a +7.28

12:08 AUCUNRISQUE Good bumper form and just missed out on his hurdling debut here.

Tom rides this for his sponsors

Chris Gordon comments, Stratford bumper winner, and was even better in defeat in hot

bumpers at Cheltenham. He just missed out on his hurdling debut here (good to soft) when

getting pipped on the line for second. Hopefully he can go one better today.

12:38 ANNUAL INVICTUS Even if back on song he faces no easy task with his penalties.

Chris Gordon comments, He won back-to back small-field chases at Cheltenham and here

over C&D before disappointing at Aintree having never travelled last time out. He carries

a 6Ib penalty here today which means carrying top weight above other two so has a bit to prove.

1:10 BLADE RUNNER The form of his Irish point could have worked out better; cost £75,000.

Chris Gordon comments, was with previous trainer Donnchadh Doyle, he's a lovely

young horse by Great Pretender and we look forward to running him here today.

1:45 TOP MAN Has turned things around on last two outings and used to be capable of a bit better.

Chris Gordon comments, Top Man turned things around when easily justifying favouritism

off a much reduced mark here (3m1f, good) in November and was then a respectable third under a penalty (same mark today) one week later, he should have no problem with the ground and is feeling well at home.

2:20 GO WHATEVER Didn't jump particularly well when a well-held third here last time; now in a visor.

Chris Gordon comments, was a dual hurdle winner who still remains a maiden over fences albeit after only four attempts. He finished third behind I See You Well here last time out when his jumping wasn't quite up to scratch. He replaces the cheekpieces with a visor this

time so fingers crossed for a good run.

3:30 STORM DENNIS Chased home a potentially smart filly at Wincanton; respected handicap debutant.

Chris Gordon comments, This lad is a soft ground bumper winner who was better for his wind surgery when chasing home a potentially smart filly at Wincanton (1m7f, good-soft)

last time out and may have the sufficient class to threaten here at this level on his handicap debut.
