Don’t miss the Call Star Sports 08000 521 321 Novices’ Hurdle !

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he race of the day has to be the “Call Star Sports 08000 521 321 Novices’ Hurdle” at Plumpton. Well we would say that !!

It’s the opener on Plumpton’s card at 12.25 and hopefully a case of the early bird catching the worm.

It’s the morning after the Star Sports Christmas Party and the word at breakfast was for Chase The Wind to land the opener.

He showed great promise in bumpers, finishing runner-up three times, but was well beaten on debut over hurdles at Newbury.

This looks a much easier assignment and he is worth a second chance.

In the next race there’s a real coup for the track as former Champion Hurdler Rock On Ruby makes his chasing debut.

He will be long odds-on in this three runner race.

Very few horses have made the transition from Champion Hurdler to top chaser – but there’s one notable exeption – the great Dawn Run who won the Gold Cup in 1986 having won the Champion Hurdle two years earlier.
