A slightly disappointing card in terms of number size at Kempton on Sunday but that could be to our advantage. It is a track that tends to favour those on the front end, especially on a decent surface. Small fields could see front-runners get a relatively soft time of things at the head of affairs so we have come up with a 55/1 acca of front runners for Sunday’s card.
There are also meetings at Sedgefield, Naas and Cork on Sunday afternoon for our horse racing tips to cover. The two Irish meetings making up for the lack of runners at Kempton. The price of 55/1 was correct with Hills at time of writing on Saturday afternoon.
2.05 Kempton – Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Novices’ Hurdle
Irish raider Hammersmith looks the most likely pace angle here having shown improved form the last twice with those tactics employed. It probably wasn’t much of a maiden hurdle that he won at Galway but he stepped up on that when third at Listowel last time. A repeat of that RPR of 126 would make him the one to beat at the weights.
2.40 Kempton – Unibet New Instant Roulette Handicap Chase
Mercian Prince loves his racing here at Kempton, a course that has been a very happy hunting ground for him through his career. He has three wins in five starts here which include his best career efforts. If he can get into a rhythm on the front end. he is going to prove very hard to get past.
3.50 Kempton – Natasha Savage, Thank You & Good Luck Handicap Chase
A hat-trick of wins for Mister Tickle have all come when pushing the pace along from an early stage. Each of those have been a small improvement on the one before and given the way he has jumped a touch to the right in the past, this track should be right up his street. He stays a touch further so he can make this a proper test on the front end.
