Timeform take you through the card at Plumpton on Sunday
"...she'd looked progressive when scoring at Fakenham prior to that..."
Timeform on Molliana
14:15 - HIT THE HIGHWAY (1) is on a lengthy losing run, but in turn he is tumbling down the weights, and could be worth chancing here. He failed to justify support back over fences last time, adding to an off-putting record in this sphere, but he is becoming too well treated to ignore now, and can be given one more chance for a trainer that does well at this time of year. Western Morning could be the danger.
14:45 - ZANZI WIN (5) is still a fair way off replicating his useful Flat form over hurdles but he is getting better with each run and is taken to get off the mark here, perhaps at the main expense of Gary Moore's Vision Clear.
15:20 - MELLOW BEN (1) has been contesting better races than this, finishing a respectable seventh in the Lanzarote hurdle at Kempton last time, and can now capitaliise on the drop in grade. It's Got Legs boasts some solid form and is feared most.
15:55 - Hard to see past CADEAU DU BRESIL (4), who was unlucky not to follow up his C&D win at Bangor, hampered on landing at the last but rallying at the death. He can gain compensation, likely at the main expense of The Wicket Chicken, who could be the one for the forecast.
16:25 - There were mitigating circumstances for MOLLIANA's (9) latest defeat at Sedgefield (hampered early on) and she's worth another chance as she'd looked progressive when scoring at Fakenham prior to that. Bazarov could have more to come now he's got his head in front and is much respected, while Snippetydoodah's good course record brings her into the reckoning.
17:00 - MICQUUS (4) seems to have turned over a new leaf all of a sudden, winning his last 2 starts in this headgear here, and can complete the hat-trick. Lightentertainment might have found his latest run coming too soon after making a winning comeback and is feared most.
17:30 - This doesn't look the strongest race of its type, so it could be worth taking a chance on Chris Gordon's BADDESLEY (5). He makes appeal on pedigree, being a half-brother to the useful hurdler/chaser Valhalla, and it would be no surprise if he were up to making an impact on debut, for a yard that do well in this sphere. Mr Harp sets a solid standard on his C&D second last month, while Bigunonthebalcony is a newcomer to consider.
