Nick Shiambouros starts the new week with a win and a place selection from Plumpton...


"This is not the strongest of races ,and his conditioner should have him fit enough to do himself justice"

Back Planetoid at 6.05/1 in the 15:05 at Plumpton


14:00 Plumpton - Evening Stanley

Evening Stanley is worth an interest in the place market.

This Oliver Sherwood inmate finished fifth to Captain Bocelli in a bumper at Market Rasen last spring. He put in some good work in the latter stages, and was not beaten all that far.

He has shown enough to suggest he could be competitive on his hurdles debut and is fairly priced at 2.447/5 in the place market.

Baratineur is the current favourite at 3.052/1. He finished a distant third to the talented Bun Doran at Haydock last month. He appears to be improving with racing and this looks easier.


15:05 Plumpton - Planetoid

Planetoid could run well at a fair price in this competitive event.

This gelding was last seen on a racecourse when finishing down the field in a handicap on the flat at Nottingham last April. If fact his last race over timber was in a handicap hurdle at Warwick in 2014.

He has yet to win off his current mark, but has shown me enough in the past to suggest he can take this. This is not the strongest of races ,and his conditioner should have him fit enough to do himself justice.

His current price of 6.05/1 is a little short, but I have a suspicion he will attract further support.

Hear The Chimes is the current favourite at 4.1. He beat Reyno in good style at Ludlow earlier this month and should give a good account of himself.
