Course form can be absolutely crucial when looking for a winner. If you know your way around a place, you are going to have an advantage over somebody who has never been there before. The same applies to horses – knowing your way around a venue is always a big advantage. Adrian Wall has picked out 5 former course winners at Kempton on Monday. He has formed an enormous 405-1 accumulator with all five runners, who have solid chances individually. It can be backed with William Hill.
Marco Botti’s Sweet Celebration is two wins from three at this venue having won his last two starts on the course in 2019. This is a step up in class but she improved hand over fist on the grass last summer and can return with another victory.
Secret Potion is on a long losing streak but has gradually slid down the weights as a result and ran an eye-catching race at Wolverhampton last week. A winner over track and trip in the past, he looks poised to strike now.
Mighty Gurkha won a Group Three over this track and trip in September and has been racing in much better company than this since, including at the Breeders’ Cup. He has the beating of Zamaani on the form book and should be too classy for these.
Love Destiny looks like the one that they all have to beat judged on his recent course and distance victory. Despite having to cope with a six pound rise in the weights, he has the perfect draw in stall one here and the stable is flying it.
Mr Zee has been raised a hefty nine pounds by the handicapper after an impressive victory on his all-weather debut here last month. There is surely more to come and Laura Pearson is a top jockey booking.
