Traders Tips: Commander of Fleet could take control on Sunday

Our racing traders are keen on the standard of competitor at Naas and Plumpton on Sunday, and gave us the inside line on who they fancy....

Commander of Fleet Horse Racing


Arguably a better days racing on Sunday than Saturday, with some Grade 1 action at Naas and a cracking Novice Chase at Plumpton.

The 13:50 at Naas is probably the best novice hurdle this season and an impressive performance here could see something really shorten up for the Ballymore at Cheltenham.

Commander Of Fleet is the one we like. He can be forgiven his disappointing run the last day in the Royal Bond over an inadequate trip and he should appreciate the step up in distance here.

Elsewhere, Joseph O’Brien introduced Le Richebourg in the 15:50 two seasons ago and relies on the potentially smart Top Moon here.

Hats off to Plumpton for their initiative of offering a bonus to any horse to win certain novice chases there who then goes on to win at Cheltenham in March.

They’ve been rewarded with a cracking field in the 13:10.

Glenloe makes his chase debut here for Gordon Elliott, but he wouldn’t look to be suited by the conditions so we wouldn’t recommend taking him here.

Master Dino is a fascinating raider from France having won his last five races in Auteuil, including a Grade 1 over hurdles, and tops the market at even money.
