We have three entries on Monday, with two going up to Musselburgh for their jumps meeting, and a runner on the flat in the evening at Wolverhampton. The going at Musselburgh at the time of writing is good to soft, and it is standard on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton.

The seven year old mare Raddle And Hum will make her chase debut at Musselburgh in the, a 0-105 novices' handicap chase, over two miles and six furlongs, with her regular jockey Becky Smith in the saddle. Raddle And Hum has failed to fire in two hurdle starts so far this season, but was a winner from a 3lb lower mark than now on her final start before a break in June at Market Rasen. This step up in trip should not be a problem, and she was second in a point to point on her racecourse debut at Taylorstown before joining us in April 2019.

Enfin Phil quickly reverts back to hurdles after appearing not to enjoy the experience on his chase debut at Sedgefield 32 days ago. He took his time to find his form last season, taking seven races before winning at Uttoxeter in May. His current mark of 112 is well within his compass, and the ground will suit, the race is at, a 0-120 handicap hurdle over the extended two miles and three furlongs with our conditional jockey Jack Hogan riding him for the first time.

Down at Wolverhampton the ultra consistent Myboymax makes a return to the flat at, in the 0-65 handicap over 12 furlongs, with his regular rider Aiden Brookes retaining the ride. Myboymax made his hurdles debut at Catterick just under six weeks ago when only finishing fifth in a race he was entitled to finish a lot closer in, it came to light post race that he had scoped dirty. Prior to that in eight starts since joining us he had never been out of the first four, including winning twice. Although he was unplaced in two previous visits to Wolverhampton when trained by his previous yard, the expectancy is that he will act on the surface.
