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.
