I am giving Lingfield a swerve going forward as I feel there is far too much skulduggery at the track.
5:30 Kempton – I have this between 3 runners, Ubla was an easy CD winner in January off 3lbs lower in a slightly easier race but the form has been boosted several times, Kyllachy Dragon has 1 win from 13 AW runs which is hardly inspiring but is clearly My Top rated and that win was off a 12lbs higher mark over this CD under today’s jockey but I am slightly worried by the quick return. The one I feel could be over-priced at 16/1 is Derry Boy who is having his second run since after wind surgery. He had earlier finished a nose second in CD Novice Stakes from which the winner has won since and although recent CD runs are uninspiring I feel the market may be worth watching in first time cheek-pieces into 0-60.
6:00 Kempton – It is tough to see where the pace is going to come from here. Penarth Pier, Fly The Nest and Recuerdame have all led but not guaranteed front runners. Kodiline has a poor record at the track albeit off much higher marks than this and does have the figures to be competitive, Penarth Pier a CD winner off 6lbs higher, was well backed lto over CD before being hampered and losing her chance. She does have the speed figures to win this but may be slightly high in the weights, Treble Clef is the one that interests me most andat 10/1 looked a little over-priced. He is definitely worth watching in the market on Handicap debut as he finished behind a short priced favourite lto when trapped wide from a poor draw and considerably ridden throughout surely better than 60 rated, Fly The Nest was interestingly ridden over CD on penultimate start. Was rated 82 around this time last year now 22lbs lower and Ben Curtis booked who is 6 from 16 for this yard with all winners well found in the market, Rajman was a CD winner lto off only 2lbs lower looking value for at least that and CD figures of 1,1,8,3,2,2,3 so clear suited and tops plenty of my figures and Mr Mac is a CD winner who paid the price in the handicap for a decent run of form at the end of 2018 beginning of 2019 after wind surgery being raised a total of 14lbs, back down to last winning mark but the booking of Queally suggests connections want a few more llbs removed.
