Our tipster Kevin O'Malley returns to GG Tips Den duty on Wednesday with one well fancied selection down in Plumpton for their aftenoon jumps card...
Acey Milan is favourite for this 2m Novices’ Hurdle and brings lots of smart bumper form to the table, but he hasn’t really done much in two starts over timber for Anthony Honeyball and I think he’s beatable here. The Flying Sofa and Colditz Castle are open to progression from recent runs, but the clear bet for me is recent course and distance winner Baddesley Knight. Trainer Chris Gordon has an excellent record with Plumpton runners, sending out 29 winners from 151 runners in the past three years, recording an LSP to BFSP of +£81.
Baddlesley Knight has improved with each run over hurdles so far and produced an RPR of 125 and a Topspeed figure of 101 when scoring handsomely here last month. There was a lot to like about his jumping, he moved well through the race and put the contest to bed when asked to. Baddesley Knight will definitely improve for fences in time and could develop into a bit of a flagbearer for the yard if he keeps on improving. In the meantime, this Novices’ Hurdle looks ripe for the taking and despite having to shoulder a penalty here, he is the progressive, in-form horse in the race, he has course experience too and those elements outweigh much of the concern about giving weight away in such an ordinary contest.
