Timeform pick out three bets from Plumpton on Monday...
Mrs Burbidge failed to convince on her two previous attempts over fences, but she has been progressive over hurdles in the meantime and is potentially well treated in this sphere. Stoical Patient was much improved when making a winning debut for this stable 13 months ago and needs considering despite her long absence, while Pretty Reckless is another to note having done well to win at Warwick last month.
Cheltenam de Vaige and Cheque En Blanc are both of firm interest starting out for their new yards, but Fergal O'Brien's recruit has a couple of fairly decent bits of handicap form to call on from last season and makes most appeal on return from seven months off the tack. Rob Robin was an impressive winner here last month and has to demand respect again despite a 9 lb rise.
St Andrews is a recent winner on the level, who ran his best race to date over hurdles on handicap bow at Worcester 11 days ago, and he appeals as the type who may yet do better. Captain George shaped as if still in good form when behind the selection on that occasion, and should be in the shake-up, while Sea The Springs clearly wasn't 100% at Southwell when last seen and is worth another chance.
