Betting Tip: Buckhorn Timothy @ 5/1 with betvictor

Plumpton provides today’s jumps action and the best race at the Sussex track is undoubtedly the 2m3f handicap chase, in which the Alan King-trained Gone Too Far is attempting to defy top weight. A winner of two of this three starts this season – handicap chases at Uttoxeter and Warwick – he’s entitled to be favourite off, but he has tended to be most effective when fresh and this comes just 27 days after his last success. Given he finished well beaten at Newton Abbot in July after a similar break, he could be worth taking on and it’s not like we’re short of alternatives.

You can make a case for all his seven rivals, but none appeal more than the Colin Tizzard-trained BUCKHORN TIMOTHY. Like several of these, he is making his chase debut this afternoon, having shown a good level of ability over hurdles. The selection won twice over the smaller obstacles last season, but has always looked more of a chaser and it seems significant that his trainer is pitching him straight into handicap company to perhaps exploit what is a generous mark.

The real clincher for a bet is the excellent form of his stable with the last three representatives to have run winning, and two of those were making their seasonal reappearances. His price of 5/1 is not too shabby either.
