PLUMPTON returns on Sunday as the jumps season draws ever nearer.
The big race of the day has attracted just four runners, but it is a cracking little heat nonetheless.
The obvious starting place is Colin Tizzard's SIZING GRANITE.
The old boy, who has been in cracking form at the age of 11 this summer, is chasing a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Newton Abbot.
He could hardly have done it more easily last time, travelling well and cruising clear from the home bend.
But that facile victory came on good to soft ground, but this former Grade 1 winner has form on a sounder surface.
The big danger is Young Wolf, who was third at Southwell 35 days ago.
That was a slightly underwhelming effort on the whole, but he was an easy winner at Stratford the time before and he remains open to progress after just nine starts.
Glanville's Guest has been in excellent nick for Cheltenham Festival-winning trainer Kieran Burke this year.
She drew right away from her rivals on the run-in at Newton Abbot last time but will need to pull out more off 8lb higher.

He wouldn't be out of this if that procedure has had the desired effect, but he is yet to win beyond 2m4f.
In summary, Sizing Granite has to give weight away to some useful rivals, but he clearly retains plenty of ability and enthusiasm.
He won't need to step up on his latest success to bag a third straight win.
