Kempton All Weather Evening

Comments

17:15 Maurimo

This looks tricky. Taawfan is surely better than she showed last time and could bounce back, while Reemannie may just have found the ground against her last time and still brings potential into her handicap debut. MAURIMO probably faced a very stiff task trying to concede weight to some useful fillies at Newmarket last time and her previous C&D was achieved in good style. She’s bred to carry on improving and she gets the nod.

17:50 Act Of Wisdom

Encourage and Lightening Shore both ran to a fair level on their debuts and can both improve but the Godolphin-owned newcomer ACT OF WISDOM has an excellent pedigree and was bought for a seven-figure sum as a yearling. He gets the nod. Great King and Haajoos are other appealing debutants in an interesting novice.

18:20 Megallan

Some interesting newcomers feature in this line-up but impressive Newmarket winner MEGALLAN sets a useful standard and could easily have a lot more to offer. Godolphin’s $800,000 recruit Secret Protector is feared most but Ertikaaz also looks interesting on paper, while Middle Park entry Decisive Edge is presumably held in some regard.

18:50 Whiskey ‘N’ Chips

There are some interesting newcomers on show, notably Lady De Peron and Tawahub, while Hilarity threatens to be well suited by 7f and still looked green when winning at Ripon last time. WHISKEY ‘N’ CHIPS raced on the opposite side of the track to the well-regarded winner when finishing second at Newbury 19 days ago though and she looks up to defying her wide draw.

19:20 Dance To Paris

The return to Polytrack looks ideal for Pianissimo and he has to be considered, along with Carnwennan, close-up in both previous runs over C&D. Road To Paris has possibilities but the vote goes to another first-time visored runner, Lucy Wadham’s DANCE TO PARIS.

19:50 Kingsholm (NAP)

Gigi’s Beach may be able to resume his progress for a new stable, whole Juan Les Pins is down in trip and grade and still has few miles on the clock. Tagovailoa may benefit from the drop to sprinting but this looks a good opportunity for KINGSHOLM (nap) to go in again. He was hit hard for his Wolverhampton success last month but he did win very easily and the effort was backed up by the clock.

20:20 Vandad

A trappy handicap in which all of the field can have some sort of case argued. There’s almost certainly more to come from Vitellius at some point and he needs a close look in the betting, while Little Red Socks may benefit from wind surgery and she’s of some interest. There has been enough promise from VANDAD to think he had a similar race in him though and the drop back to 6f and Class 5 company could see him break his duck.

20:50 Flower Of Scotland

This looks incredibly tricky. Market support for Gonna Dancealot, who makes her debut for Paul D’Arcy, should be heeded but in the absence of that information the vote goes to the lightly raced FLOWER OF SCOTLAND. Frankly Mr Shankly is next best.
