The Best Horse Racing Tips for Hereford & Plumpton on Monday

Monday’s Jump racing comes from the meetings at Hereford and Plumpton. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for two races from the rural Cathedral City racecourse and one from the East Sussex track.

Hereford’s opening 2m handicap hurdle provides our first Horse Racing tip at 1.00pm, with today’s nap coming in the 2m 5f hunters’ chase at 3.30pm. Over at Plumpton, today’s each-way longshot runs in their finale, a 2m handicap hurdle at 4.10pm.

“Tip of the Day” – Just The Man – 1.00pm Hereford

Brian Hughes’ mount should take plenty of beating in this handicap hurdle if able to reproduce his close fifth in a competitive Cheltenham contest earlier this season.

Just The Man (NAP) – 1.00pm Hereford

The Robert Walford-trained Gambie Tiep is the most interesting contender for this 2m hurdle on his first run in a handicap and just his second start since joining his current handler from France earlier this month.


The mount of James Best is respected following a promising British debut in a Wincanton novices’ hurdle three weeks ago. But this looks a good opportunity for leading jockey Brian Hughes to record yet another victory, courtesy of Just The Man from the John O’Shea stable.

The six-year-old ran out a comfortable winner of a Ludlow handicap last October and despite finishing only fifth next time produced an even better effort when beaten a little over three lengths in a competitive Cheltenham contest.

The grey gelding had a recent spin on Wolverhampton’s all-weather surface to blow away the cobwebs and on his favoured good ground the son of Rajasam looks sure to go close. The other one to consider is another handicap debutante in the Kerry Lee-trained Black Poppy.

Solomon Grey (Next Best) – 3.30pm Hereford

An excellent hunter chase with the Paul Nicholls-trained Stratagem the highest rated contender on a mark of 140. The stable is going through a bit of a lean spell at the moment however and despite having the services of top amateur David Maxwell may just need the run, the gelding’s first for over 10 months.

Last season’s shock Aintree Foxhunters’ winner Cousin Pascal would prove hard to beat if turning up in similar form. But the mount of James King was beaten at long odds-on in a point-to-point on his most recent start, leaving the ex Dan Skelton inmate Solomon Grey as the one to beat.

The grey son of Sulamani looks the type to do well in this grade and in the hands of 3lb claimer Lucy Turner only needs to run up to his best form of last year to go close on his  hunter chase debut.

Monete (Longshot) – 4.10pm Plumpton

It could be worth taking a chance on the unexposed Monete in this modest Class 5 handicap hurdle, on the mare’s third start for talented rookie trainer Harriet Brown. 

The grey five-year-old showed some promise for trainer Nick Mitchell last year and on her first start for Brown at Wincanton on Boxing Day ran well for a long way at a big price, eventually falling at the final flight when beaten. Making her handicap debut at Taunton just over a week ago, Monete kept-on without reaching a challenging position, coming home in ninth place, a little over 13 lengths behind winner Amelia’s Dance.

With talented 3lb claimer Fergus Gillard in the saddle for the first time, the daughter of Jukebox Jury can outrun her odds against some moderate rivals, the best of which may be last month’s Plumpton 1-2 Hey Bob and Global Wonder.
