PENDRA

Plumpton 12.40 WIN

Apologies for what is likely to be another short-priced selection. But on a day of uninspiring racing, quality is very thin on the ground. Charlie Longsdon is tipped by many to be a champion jumps trainer of the future. I’m not sure about that -- but I’ll be surprised if he has many better horses in his yard than this well-bred son of Old Vic and Grade One winning-chaser Mariah Rollins. He made a big impact when winning his sole start in bumpers and could hardly have been more impressive on his novice hurdling debut at this track a month ago, albeit in a weak race. Travelling powerfully, he displayed a terrific, long stride and looked a natural jumper. “He’s a bit special, hopefully,” commented Longsdon, who returns to the Sussex course today in the confident hope of defying a 7lb penalty to pick up a similar contest.
