Plumpton Horse Racing Tips – Monday, November 15

Itf it’s a Monday during the jumps season, then it’s likely that there will be a meeting at Plumpton. The Sussex track hosts plenty of Monday meetings and November 15 is no different. Colin Tizzard, Nicky Henderson and Philip Hobbs are sending runners for this meeting and there is always plenty of interest in runners trained by local handler Gary Moore.

Vision Clear (1.45 Plumpton)

With the first race at 12.45pm just a two-runner affair, our betting eyes turned to the 2m selling hurdle and the runner trained by Gary Moore.

He comes out best at the weights here and has performed well at this track before, with a couple of runner-up finishes. Gary Moore and his rider/son Jamie make a formidable team at this track and he finished second in a much better race than this at Fakenham last time.

Likely to go off favourite for this contest, he could have most to fear from Greek Kodiac, who has won twice on the Flat this year.

Numbers Man (2.15 Plumpton)

Front-runner Numbers Man represents the Colin Tizzard yard who are having a mini resurgence after a particularly disappointing campaign last season.

Colin will soon be handing the reins over to his son Joe and Numbers Man can give that team another winner on Monday afternoon.

Numbers Man went down by just three-quarters of a length at Ffos Las last month on his first run after wind surgery and now his breathing problem seens to have been suited, he may prove hard to peg back from the Flat around the tight Sussex track.

Cremant (2.45 Plumpton)

Consistent type for trainer Neil Mulholland and should be suited by this track given some slight stamina question marks around this trip.

Jockey Sean Bowen is having a breakout season and he could be the ideal man to guide Cremant home and the horse’s latest runner-up finish at Fakenham in a race in which he is badly hampered, lends hope that he can get his head in front for the second time over hurdles.

His strike-rate (1/10) over obstacles is slightly disconcerting, wghich is perhaps why we’re getting a decent price about this one.

Top Man (3.45 Plumpton)

Hasn’t won in ten starts in over a year and there must be minor doubts that he will never recapture the form that resulted in a win off a mark of 117 at Fontwell in October 2020.

He hasn’t troubled the judge since December but he’s now dropped to a highly attractive mark of 95 and there were definite signs of a revival at Fontwell last time when he finished fifth behind the reopposing Antony at Fontwell last time.

Still aged only seven, Top Man still has plenty of time on his side and trainer Chris Gordon loves to have winners at his local track.
