Plumpton’s NAP: UP THE STRAIGHT | 3:40pm Bob Champion Cancer Trust Novices’ Chase | Dom’s Pick
Richard Rowe’s remains a novice in this sphere despite some solid form over fences last campaign, including a creditable fifth in the Silver Trophy at Cheltenham’s April Meeting when last seen.
He gets 10lb off Pigsah Pike with the other opponent Botox Has perhaps vulernable due to lack of experience here, so the standard-bearer could be the one to side with in this three-runner field on that merit.
Having chased home the likes of Shishkin, Chantry House and Umbrigado in his career to date, he’s got enough form in the book to suggest he can take this.
NB: MALWOOD | 2:30pm Nick Embiricos Memorial 2021 Handicap Chase
The son of Dawn Approach hasn’t fared all that well in chases so far but did improve a tad at Stratford before a mistake put his chances to bed four out.
However, the handicapper has given him the benefit of the doubt by dropping him 2lb and he’s significantly lower than his last winning mark as a hurdler, so should have more to give in this sphere.
Tabitha Worsley claims some handy weight off the charge’s back and he has won at this coure before so must enter calculations.
