I’M like a Bull in a china shop after banging in a few winners at Cheltenham over the weekend.
Let’s milk the bookies for all they’re worth on Monday – there is plenty to enjoy at my local track Hereford, over the sticks at Plumpton and on the sand at Kempton.
3.20 Pembroke House – Sarah-Jayne Davies’ chaser is 11 years young but still has a healthy appetite for the game.
He won well at Ludlow in May and ran a stormer after a break to finish second at the same track last month.
A 2lb rise looks more than fair and he has been found a very winnable contest here.
5.00 Diocles Of Rome – Ralph Beckett’s three-year-old took a while to get the hang of things.
The penny finally dropped over course and distance last time out when he bolted up in a decent time.
Oisin Murphy takes the ride and he should have more progress in him off his current mark.
Bully’s Monday Bankers
3.20 Hereford – Pembroke House
3.35 Plumpton – Welluptoscratch
5.00 Kempton – Diocles Of Rome
3.35 Welluptoscratch – The lightly-raced seven-year-old had offered little before finishing second up in trip at Hexham last time.
He was possibly an unlucky loser, so he must have a massive chance over 3m1f here off just a 1lb higher mark.
Golden girl Bryony Frost takes the ride, so he’s got plenty in his favour.
