Jump racing dominates the action across the UK and Ireland on Monday, with three meetings to look forward to in the afternoon, whilst a single all-weather fixture takes us through the evening.

First off is Southwell before they go at Plumpton, Leopardstown and then Wolverhampton in the evening.

Amongst our Monday fancies is one for trainer Tim Vaughan who has proven form in testing conditions and can progress in handicaps.

15:52 Plumpton - Classic Lord @ 5/1

Already a two-time winner over hurdles, Tim Vaughan’s CLASSIC LORD can return to winning ways at Plumpton this afternoon.

The son of Lord Of England has some very fair form in novice hurdles and managed to win two in good style earlier on in the season. Those two wins came over trips at up to an extended 2m1f so he should be well suited to this task.

Getting off the mark at Fontwell in November, the result never really looked in doubt as he pulled clear after the third last and went on to win by a wide margin. The form isn’t the strongest but the style of that victory left a good impression.

Further success was achieved under a penalty at Bangor on his next start and that form has worked out pretty well. Several subsequent winners have come out of the race and it was another smooth performance in testing conditions.

His two starts in handicap company to date have come over 2m4f and he seems to just run out of steam over that trip. With that in mind, the drop back to two miles is likely to suit and a return to winning ways could be on the agenda.

19:30 Wolverhampton - Havanazam @ 11/4

HAVANAZAM goes for Tom Symonds in Wolverhampton’s feature race and his course record is certainly eye-catching. Further success certainly shouldn’t be ruled out, with Callum Shepherd in the saddle once again.

The son of Havana Gold has a record of three wins from three starts at Wolverhampton and this progressive sort could have more up his sleeve before the handicapper catches up.

Joining the Tom Symonds yard in November, he disappointed in one start over hurdles but has won two of his three starts on the all-weather since. A 5lb rise seems pretty fair for his two-length victory over course and distance last time out and he can continue his unblemished track record here.
