EXCLUSIVE TIP (MONDAY)

15:40 PLUMPTON

Brianstorm has placed twice in two attempts over hurdles so with champion jockey Richard Johnson in the saddle and as a previous point-to-point winner he should be open to further improvement now stepping up in trip for today’s race.

Larry was clear of the rest of the field when second over course and distance a couple of weeks ago so despite finishing thirteen lengths behind the winner he looks to be the biggest challenger.

In-form trainer Emma Lavelle gives Belle Empress her first run since 2015 so any market support could prove significant and is worth watching closely.

BRIANSTORM (WIN)
