15:52 Plumpton: Timeform preview and free Race Pass

The 15:52 at Plumpton on Monday is one of the most competitive and valuable races on their six-race card where a case can be made for several.
The horse who tops Timeform weight-adjusted ratings is Mr Mackay (133), who got off the mark over hurdles at the second time of asking when landing a six-runner maiden over two and a half miles at Huntingdon in October. He brushed off a rare poor effort with a creditable second in a handicap hurdle over two miles at Hereford at the end of January, leading when jumping the last but headed on the run-in. Mr Mackay has a 7 lb claimer back on board now and he seems sure to make his presence felt for an in-form yard - highlighted by the Hot Trainer Flag.
However, a big danger is expected to come from Mr Freedom (130), who completed a hat-trick on the Flat last summer, and has proved very consistent since reverting back to hurdles, hitting the frame on his last four completed starts in this sphere. He went without his usual cheekpieces when runner-up over 19 furlongs at Taunton last time, travelling fluently throughout the contest, still having every chance when making a mistake at the last and having nothing left on the run-in. Mr Freedom goes especially well with ease in the ground, won't have a problem with a drop back in trip, and seems sure to launch another bold bid.
