Timeform on Jot'em Down

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Plumpton on Sunday...

BADDESLEY KNIGHT - 15:25 Plumpton

This could be tailor-made for BADDESLEY KNIGHT on his handicap debut. He's won a bumper and a C&D novice hurdle at the track and should prove capable of better still with his sights raised now, representing the Chris Gordon yard that won this race in 2016. This looks a cracking renewal, though, and any number can have a good chance made for them, Mister Universum and Legal History appealing as just two of several dangers.

JOT'EM DOWN - 15:55 Plumpton

The most interesting one here is JOT'EM DOWN, who goes chasing back at the scene of his 2016 bumper win. He's by no means obviously well treated on his handicap debut, but this race won't take much winning and he could be set for a much-improved performance stepped up in trip, with cheekpieces added by David Bridgwater, who has returned a level stakes profit of £34.49 with his runners in first-time headgear. Tzar de L'Elfe is holding his form well and heads the list of dangers.

AGE OF WISDOM - 17:05 Plumpton

AGE OF WISDOM and Kereman are last-time-out winners with the scope for further progress, so there's every chance this unfolds into a duel between the pair, with the first-named taken to come out on top based on the amount of scope he has from his Flat form. Not many of the others make much appeal, but Buckeye Shan is worth monitoring in the betting starting out for a new yard.
