Monday Racing: Another Champagne celebration at Plumpton for Scott?



Monday’s racing action sees two all weather meeting take place from Southwell and Wolverhampton, as well as a National Hunt card at Plumpton.

Plumpton’s novice hurdle sees Quloob, formerly useful on the flat for Owen Burrows, bid to make it second time lucky over timber for Gary Moore.

He’s an odds-on shot to get off the mark following his third in a good race at Ascot last month, and this race should represent a winnable opportunity for the son of New Approach, though the unknown quantity in the field is Mark Bradstock’s Irish point winner The Grey Scholar.

There’s also a fairly decent novice chase on the card, with impressive recent Sandown winner Champagne Court fancied to follow up in this.

His rivals include Mercy Mercy Me, who had become somewhat frustrating for Fergal O’Brien and was beaten at short odds again last time out on his debut for Paul Nicholls.

Nevertheless, the champion will be hoping that the transition to fences will help the penny drop for Malcolm Denmark’s gelding. Diable De Sivola, though clearly talented, is a similarly hard to win with type and hasn’t shown much on either his prior two starts.

At Wolverhampton, Minhaaj drops back into calmer waters after running with credit in a Newmarket Listed event last time out and should take all the beating in their two-year-old event, whilst over at Southwell, their feature is a Class 4 sprint over five furlongs, where at the foot of the weights, C&D specialist Samovar looks to be able to add to his fine record at the Nottinghamshire track.

We’ll also get the five day declarations for two of the most anticipated match ups of this decade. Altior looks likelier to take on Cyrname in the 1965 Chase at Ascot, but the Betfair is still an option, where another heavyweight clash will hopefully be taking placed between up and comer Lostintranslation and 2017 & 2018 champion Bristol De Mai.

It’s a cracking weekend to look forward to.
