THERE is jump racing today at Plumpton, with gates opening at 12 noon, and the first race scheduled for 2.15pm, with the last at 4.45pm.
Most races are well subscribed, with the opening Novices Hurdle over two miles attracting 13 runners, with favourite likely to be Calva D’Auge, trained by Paul Nicholls and ridden by Harry Cobden.

The two miles three furlongs chase has only four runners, headed by The Flying Sofa, a winner last time out for trainer Gary Moore, ridden by son Jamie. There is no reason why this progressive sort should not win again.
The two miles four furlongs handicap hurdle is a competitive affair and sees course winner Ding Ding, trained by Sheena West and ridden by Marc Goldstein, back in action. The favourite in this race is likely to be the Amy Murphy trained Hawthorn Cottage.

Trainer Chris Gordon and jockey Tom Cannonteam up with The Tin Man in the three mile one furlong handicap hurdle. This winner last time out looks set to be favourite and put in a good effort in this race.
