Hitting The Crossbar

It was a big week for racing with the shock news of the proposed sale of Kempton Racecourse by the Jockey Club as part of a proposed plan to reinvigorate the sport for future generations.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps action from Plumpton and Ayr while there is also an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton.  It is going to be a busy day for the yard with runners at both of the National Hunt fixtures.  I will start at Plumpton where Work contests the two mile novices' hurdle at 1.25pm.  She looked the likeliest winner on her debut at Ffos Las until unseating Tom Scudamore at the penultimate flight, although she was a little disappointing last time when fourth.  She should run well with a clear round but Bastien is a short price and will take a lot of beating.  Sweettoothtommy ran well when runner-up at Taunton last time out and a similar effort would see him go close in the staying handicap chase at 3.05pm - David Noonan rides our Plumpton pair.
