13:55 Kempton – Ahoy Senor

This is pretty much a two-horse race between Bravemansgame and Ahoy Senor. They will both go forward it just depends on what Harry Cobden does on Bravemansgame. Will he go on the left of Ahoy Senor knowing he goes right? Or does he go outside of him and put pressure on him to jump well?

I’d probably do the latter and make sure Ahoy Senor doesn’t jump into me. Bravemansgame is the better horse but I’ve been blown away by Ahoy Senor. He impressed on his last time out at Newbury in November, beating Mr Incredible by 31l. I’ll side with him.

14:30 Kempton – Epatante

Tritonic won at Ascot earlier this month off a mark of 141 and Not So Sleepy won it off a mark of 142. I’d say Not So Sleepy’s effort was a better run than Tritonic’s. However, I’m going to go with Epatante. She returned at Newcastle at the end of November which finished in a dead heat with Not So Sleepy. However, I fancy her to turn it on and get the job done at Kempton. She’s the one to beat for me.

15:05 Kempton – Minella Indo

Asterion Forlonge was travelling really well before he fell last time out in the John Durkan at Punchestown. He has a chance but the race is made up for Minella Indo. It’ll suit him and he’s got cheekpieces on for the first time too, which is a pretty smart move from Henry de Bromhead.

He’s the best horse and he has what you need at Kempton, which is really good jumping. I can see him sitting behind Frodon for the majority of the race and Rachael Blackmore making a move later on.
