Punters clean up at Plumpton on Monday as all seven favourites win to leave bookies on their knees

PUNTERS had it right off at Plumpton on Monday as all seven favourites won.

The traditional pre-Christmas meeting often attracts big crowds, and those in attendance were richly rewarded.

Each of the seven favourites won at Plumpton on Monday

Colin Tizzard’s classy Highest Sun started the winning spree in the first race at odds of 5-6 under Jonjo O’Neill Jr.

That was followed by a quickfire double for trainer Chris Gordon, whose Highway One O Two (9-4) and Top Man (5-4) obliged.

Aptly named for those bookies on course, Hard To Forget (6-4) was the next jolly to find the back of the net.

Scrutinise (11-10), Flaminger (6-5) and Mountain Leopard (5-2) completed the rout.

Coral spokesman David Stevens said:Its never going to be a good day for the layers when the favourites oblige in all seven races on the card.

“But what has helped us is that they were trained and ridden by a variety of handlers and jockeys, and the full house of winning jollies has come at Plumpton on a Monday, not Ascot on a Saturday.

“That said, its still a nice early Festive treat for plenty of punters.”
