A 5/1 winner for Paul Ferguson on Sunday, Monday’s selection comes in the 2:00 at Plumpton: Frontier Spirit
Monday is a fairly quiet day, but the Paddy Power Gold Cup winning trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies can strike at Plumpton with Frontier Spirit (2:00) who has yet to finish out of the first two in four career starts. Early price; 15/8 bet365
The six-year-old, who finished runner-up in both bumpers, won on his hurdles debut over this trip on soft ground at Perth in September and ran a cracker when runner-up to Carribs Leap at Fakenham last month.
That day the selection was trying to concede 6lbs to a potentially smart rival and a reproduction of that form should be good enough in this grade.
