Bets Of The Day: Tizzard's Mick can provide a tonic at Plumpton

Jumps racing
Two jumping cards are on Sunday

Alan Dudman found a winner yesterday with Sextant at 6.05/1, and he is back for his two bets on Sunday...

"He's a bit in-and-out, although more out these days, but he finished second in a similar grade back in October when making the running."

Back Mick Thonic @ 10/1 Sportsbook price in the 16:40 at Plumpton

Expect more from Capitoul after Perth run

16:15 Ludlow - Back Capitoul @ 7.06/1

With the Dante meeting just around the corner and another batch of Classic trials in Ireland looming, it's a bit of a tricky Sunday with two National Hunt meetings to unpick.

It would be small stakes for me today, as I am firmly in Flat mode, but Capitoul stands out at around 7.06/1 in the 0-140 Handicap Chase.

He made his first appearance since a wind op and 314 days recently at Perth and he could have needed that badly.

Good ground suits and he's a strong traveller that seems to enjoy sharp tracks. He isn't the biggest, but he jumps fairly quickly from A to B.

Dropped 2lb from his Perth reappearance, I'll take him at a fair price for Sam Twiston-Davies.

Tactics and ground makes Mick an interesting bet at a big price

16:40 Plumpton - Back Mick Thonic @ 10/1 Sportsbook price

Some good conditional jockeys are in action in this contest with the likes of Rex Dingle, Conor Brace and Jonjo O'Neill junior. Brace really is excellent, but his mount Melekhov was the 6/5 fav last night on the Sportsbook. That's too short.

I am going to take a chance on O'Neill's ride Mick Thonic at 10/1.

He's a bit in-and-out, although more out these days, but he finished second in a similar grade back in October when making the running.

Quick ground suits him best and he races from a winnable mark of 114. He could represent a nice trade if you are using him as a back-to-lay, but he's a big enough price to row in with in a small field that he could dictate.
