Loader’s Lucky 15 – best bets from Plumpton, Naas and Wolverhampton
Whenever I look at the weather forecast at the moment it seems to be raining. Ffos Las is due to hold an inspection and to try to avoid any non-runners ,I’m selecting horses at Naas, Plumpton & Wolverhampton.
2.15 Plumpton – Scrutinise
Every time there is fixture at Plumpton on a Monday in recent weeks, I just keep seeing the Page Fuller & Zoe Davison combination amongst the winners. Scrutinise was one of those whowon at the Sussex venue on his last start and did the job in comfortable style. The seven-year-old was raised 9lb by the handicapper for his success. He still looks like he has more to offer and there is a lot of question marks over the rest of the field. For me this is my banker leg of my EW Lucky15.
It’s hard to put your trust in Vincenzo Mio on his bare form figures as he’s still a maiden over fences and is arguably a better hurdler. However I think trainer Chris Gordon has found a really weak race for him to exploit. The son of Corri Piano probably needed the run earlier this month and will likely come forward for that. Being a strong traveller will probably suit him as there is a couple of pace angles in the race and I expect him to be on the scene in the final stages.
The Long Mile is yet to really take to fences after running in Beginners Chase, however he’s pitched into handicap company here in a winnable race. So far he has been held up and those tactics should be suitable here. If he’s close to his mark of 104 I expect him to go all the way.
A selection on the all-weather to round off with the appropriately named Punter. Richard Hughes has been in good form of late operating at a 25% strike rate. This two-year-old filly ran a respectable race to finish fourth on debut at Kempton. Looking at her pedigree stepping up in trip shall suit and could possibly be favourite come post time.
