Betting Tip: Arthamint @ 11/4 with bet365

Plumpton takes up its usual Monday afternoon slot and the star attraction is the George Moore-trained Arsenal Mad, who is bidding for a hat-trick in the 2m3f novices’ limited handicap chase (due off 2.30pm).

But he’s just 1/5 to see off a couple of inferior rivals, albeit giving away plenty of weight, and we therefore have to look elsewhere for a bet at a working man’s price.

Look no further than the Dan Skelton-trained ARTHAMINT, who is fancied to carry top weight to victory in the novices’ handicap chase over 3m1f (3.30pm). He has been in fine form over fences, winning at Warwick on his penultimate start and finishing first past the post at Lingfield previously only to be disqualified after his rider David England weighed in light.

England is back on board this afternoon and will need all his jockey skills as his mount has looked a tricky ride on more than one occasion. That said, the eight-year-old is settling better in his races for being dropped in and it will be disappointing if he can’t give weight away to some modest, largely out of form rivals now switched back to the smaller obstacles off what looks a fair mark.
