I have not been blogging recently as I have been busy with a few different things but it was time to return today as I have a couple of selections that will hopefully do the business.
I have picked three horses today on this quiet Monday afternoon and the first of those comes at Leicester in the 2.50. Three Kingdoms for the in-form John Ferguson stable looks like the one to side with if taking to fences. He was progressive over hurdles having won three times before finding the Supreme Novices Hurdle all too much at the Festival in March. He has been off since and returns in a beginners chase today. He does face stiff competition in the form of Thomas Crapper who has run well in his first two chase starts. He is likely to have been well schooled at Bloomfields and with a clear round of jumping can hopefully come out on top today.
The remaining two selections run in the concluding races at Plumpton and the first of those is Little Boy Boru. He carries a 6lb penalty for his most recent success and with the others not having much form to go on he looks the safest option running in a similar race to that of his last time out win. Harry Bannister is a capable pilot and his experience should stand him in good stead here today.
Finally in the bumper I have gone for Sadler’s Gold for David Pipe and Tom Scudamore. Although it is his debut today he fits the profile of a likely winner here. His stable have won the race with similar types in recent years and he is well supported to open his account. It doesn’t look to be the strongest race and of those who have had a run Rude And Crude looks the one to follow him home after being sold to Lawney Hill after winning his completed point start.
