6.55pm Kempton tips for Monday’s Class 6 contest raced over 1m 4f for three-year-olds. Read on for our free betting tips, predictions and analysis.
IN SUMMARY: Luca Cumani’s KINGS CITY has enough form in the book to win a race of this nature and he gets the vote. He remains on a fair mark following some improved efforts and the first-time visor could see him home in front today. Secret Soul can do best of the rest having shown glimpses of improvement recently.
1 HELF – Doesn’t look to be going the right way and Richard Hannon’s son of Helmet may be on the receiving end of a gelding operation in the near future. He’s been dropped 2lbs since his last run, but that doesn’t look as if it will inspire a revival in form.
2 LEAPT – Nine race maiden who runs off a reasonable mark of 65. He finished second of eight off this mark over further in the summer and Nicola Currie claims a handy 7lbs off his back, so he’s not without a chance. Stall 10 isn’t ideal though.
3 GLASSALT – Five race maiden, but Michael Bell’s filly looks to be going the right way following two placed efforts lately. She’s been left on a mark of 63 following the latest of those and this looks weaker than her last start. Silvestre De Sousa remains in the saddle.
4 SECRET SOUL – Looks to be slowly improving, although that may be down to her lower handicap marks and weaker company. She steps back up in trip today, which looks like the right move, and she can improve again here for the Ralph Beckett stable. Respected.
5 MALT TEASER – 12 race maiden who is surely running out of options. He was comfortably held at Chelmsford last time out and he’s stepped up in trip today again off the same mark. Robert Havlin is an interesting booking though and stall 12 makes life tricky.
6 KINGS CITY – Luca Cumani’s son of Rock Of Gibraltar has shown enough form to win a race of this nature and the switch back to the All-Weather should help. The booking of Jamie Spencer is positive and a mark of 62 should be within his reach with a first-time visor.
7 MOONLIGHT SILVER – One of the few runners in this with a victory to her name and she seeks to complete a double today. She won a course and distance handicap back in August and she races off a reasonable 4lb higher mark today. Adam Kirby is an excellent booking and stall 3 is ideal. Respected.
8 EPSOM SECRET – Struggled on her last two starts having shot up the handicap following a win at Windsor back in July. She’s only 2lbs higher than that mark today and John Egan remains in the saddle, which is a positive move. She needs to prove 1m 4f is her optimum trip though.
9 SPIRITOFEDINBURGH – Takes a sizeable step up in trip today from 6f to 1m 4f. She’s yet to achieve much over varying trips having sunk down the weights and whilst on breeding she should get this trip, the first-time tongue tie is concerning and others are preferred.
10 DELIRIUM – Won a 1m 2f Sandown handicap last time out and that form gives her a major chance in this now stepped up in trip again. David Egan remains in the saddle and the handicapper may have been lenient raising her just 4lbs. Respected.
11 KATABATIKA – Has produced some mixed form in six starts to date and she’s opposed again today. A 2lb lower mark will help, as will the switch back to the All-Weather, but stall 14 is a hard draw to overcome, even over 1m 4f and others hold stronger claims.
12 BEACONSFIELD – Second runner in this for Hughie Morrison and this Foxwedge gelding has been dropped 4lbs following a disappointing effort at Chelmsford last month. He looks as if he will need more time to be seen to best effect, although the slight drop in trip should help.
13 KINGWILLIAMSTOWN – Tried in first-time cheekpieces today but that’s unlikely to spark improvement in Jose Santos’s runner. He’s been beaten a long way in all his starts and he’s 6lbs out of the handicap today. Opposed.
14 SILVER MIST – Seven race maiden who races from 6lbs out of the handicap today. She’s failed to show any progression in seven starts to date and she takes a big step up in trip that’s unlikely to suit. Opposed.
