It's a low-key Monday but Alan Dudman has found an 8/1 double to consider on the Sportsbook for Monday's action at Plumpton...
"He stays well and acts on better ground, and can bounce back in a small field following a below par run in the Devon National."
Bailey to take the opener with mare
Monday is an extremely tricky punting day, and there's the matter of the changing ground at Plumpton too.
Today's first bet is Kim Bailey's Hollymount Holly in a weak mares' novice. She can be excused for disappointing last time at Wetherby due to the fact it was her first run for 296 days. She was beaten a long way out so we have to put a line through that effort.
I give her chance today on her Hereford bumper win by five lengths and a solid second at Wincanton. She was up with the pace for the latter and there was a big gap to the third.
Acceptance can bounce back
Only three runners line up in the 14:18 and I am far from convinced about favourite Faustinovik - who can be ponderous jumping and has had plenty of chances to win a race.
I prefer Special Acceptance judged on his Sussex National run. I backed the third in that race behind Paul Webber's charge and he put up a terrific effort over the marathon trip from 118.
He stays well and acts on better ground, and can bounce back in a small field following a below par run in the Devon National.
