HUMMDINGER (3.45 Plumpton)
HUMMDINGER was beaten by a long way on his hurdles debut at Worcester last time but jumped poorly over the fixed brush hurdles and is worth another chance now that he tackles conventional obstacles in the Core Spreads Juvenile Hurdle at Plumpton (3.45). The first-time visor could also bring improvement, as trainer Alan King is 15 from 81 (18.5% strike-rate) for a profit of £35.27 to a £1 level stake at SP.
ICONIC CODE tends to come good in the autumn, with both her wins coming in October on soft ground. She caught the eye when fifth of 16 at Carlisle last time, doing third best of those who were ridden patiently. Home Before Dusk, best of the hold-up horses in second, gave the form a boost when just touched off at Newcastle the other day. Her full record from September to November, since qualified for handicaps, reads 1010 (2-4), with both ‘duck eggs’ excusable – she failed to respond positively to first-time headgear and then failed to cope with Fibresand.
