No Hiding Place looks up to the test at Plumpton
Lambourn: Nick Deacon
No Hiding Place(3.20 Plumpton)
Might well have won an amateur riders' handicap at Sandown last time had he not made a bad mistake at the second last. Faces a tougher test here, but looks to be improving and stable in very good form.
Others to follow
Ffos Las 2.05 Another Emotion, 4.50 The Lion Dancer.
Plumpton 5.30 Voyage De Retour.
North: Colin Russell
Sharney Sike(3.00 Newcastle, nap)
Disappointed last time and not the force of old, but has a fine record on the track, has dropped to a good mark and with conditions to suit is fancied to get off the mark for the season.
Others to follow
Newcastle 2.25 On The Rox, 3.30 Main Fact, 4.05 Swing Hard, 4.40 Behindthelines, 5.10 Massini's Lady, 5.40 Dedigout.
West Country: Andrew King
Ballygown Bay(3.20 Plumpton, nap)
Returns from a break and expected to go close with things in his favour as he has run well when fresh in the past.

Plumpton 4.30 Moving In Style 5.30 Irish Odyssey.
Ffos Las 3.45 Behind Time 4.20 Garran City.
Racing Post Ratings:Sam Walker
Split a pair of subsequent winners when second at Gowran in October and repeat performance could be enough if he's ready to go first time up.
Topspeed: Dave Edwards
Honourable runner-up on Naas reappearance three weeks ago and despite top weight can deservedly gain compensation.
Longshot: Ed Quigley
Solomn Grundy(4.20 Ffos Las)
Wasn't at his best last time out, but trip and ground will suit and is on a fair mark.
Ireland: Tony O'Hehir
An eyecatching third at Naas last month, the son of Excelebration makes plenty of appeal over a similar trip in today's opener. He gets the vote to score for Jessica Harrington and Colm O'Donoghue.
Raceform Interactive nugget
