Competitive racing at Plumpton’s latest meeting

PLUMPTON’S latest meeting yesterday saw impressive winners sent out by local trainers Sheena West and Gary Moore.

Sheena West sent out seven-year-old bay mare Golden Cannon to take the handicap hurdle over two miles one furlong. Owned  by M J Hills and ridden by Marc Goldstein, this runner impressed with a fluent performance, making her sixth run over hurdles a winning one.

She beat grey gelding Brother Bennett, a 14-1 shot trained by Zoe Davison, by a comfortable nine lengths, continuing the success of her Lewes-based trainer at this popular track. Sheena rarely goes away empty-handed.

French-bred Cheque En Blanc, a six-year-old which had joined Gary Moore’s Horsham yard only two weeks previously, was ridden to success in the three miles four furlongs handicap chase by Jamie Moore.  Owned by Mrs Elizabeth Kiernan, scoring his first victory over bigger obstacles- and should have more successes to follow

Dorset trainer Colin Tizzard made the long trip to Plumpton pay off when he sent out five-year-old Mister Malarky  to win the Novices Limited Handicap Chase of the day over  two miles three furlongs under a good ride from Tom O’ Brien.

Meanwhile the opening race of this meeting had seen a good victory for Irish-bred Getaway Trump, trained by Paul Nicholls , ridden by Harry Cobden.  The five-year-old was having only his second run over hurdles and shaped up well indicating a good future.
