Here’s today’s selection

Len Brennan (1425 Plumpton)

Dashing amateur Gay Kindersley was one of the great post-war characters in British jump racing, and he is remembered in the Howden Sport And Equine Insurance Conditional Jockeys Handicap Chase (run for the Gay Kindersley Trophy) at Plumpton.

Un Prophete helped make the market when I looked at the race, as he’s one I was keen to oppose, but his absence rather spoils the value. Lilith is consistent but the handicapper pretty much has her measure, and of more interest is Len Brennan, who is better class than this at his best, and is starting out life for renaissance man Milton Harris today. Harris has had three runners this year he’s inherited from other yards, that trio finishing first, second and third (9/2, 25/1, 25/1), so the switch of stables could be the kick up the arse Len Brennan needs.

Len Brennan ran one of his best races over fences here when finishing too close to Ok Corral and Impulsive Star as a novice, and was hard to place for a while as a result. All the same, his fourth to Strictlyadancer at Cheltenham last October shows he’s still got ability, and given he’s 9lb lower than that today, there’s nothing wrong with his mark. He’s easily forgiven a poor run in the Lincolnshire National on his final start for Tim Vaughan, and with cheekpieces on as a signal of intent, he can bounce back to winning form.
