Bets Of The Day: Burrows and Simcock the trainers to back at Kempton

Kempton
Kitaabaat lines up in the feature at Kempton on Tuesday

Alan Dudman's only bet yesterday finished second at Southwell, and he is sticking with the all-weather for Tuesday with a pair of bets at Kempton...

"His last-to-first style is one to consider if you like utilising the lay-to-back option."

Back Kitaabaat @ 8.07/1 in the 15:20 at Kempton

Time to catch Burrows with a second time out horse

1350 Kempton - Back Hukum @ 7.0

I like to back runners from the Owen Burrows' stable on their second outing, so I'll be heading to Kempton for one of my bets with Hukum.

He shaped well on his debut over 7f at Newbury on quick ground behind Cherokee Trail - who subsequently was well beaten in a Group 3. Hukum steps up in trip with an extra furlong to deal with on Tuesday, and it should clearly be a positive for this son of Sea The Stars.

Saeed bin Suroor's Laser Show is likely to be short in the betting, but he's been off since July and has to carry a penalty. Hopefully it will make a price for Hukum.

The selection is drawn well too in four.

Kitaabaat can land the feature

15:20 Kempton - Back Kitaabaat @ 8.07/1

We're sticking at Kempton again for the second bet of the afternoon with the feature Middle Distance Final at 15:20, and I like the claims of Kitaabaat.

The David Simcock-trained six-year-old done well to win at the track over 1m4f last time despite the steady nature of the gallop, and his last-to-first style is one to consider if you like utilising the lay-to-back option.

Ergo, if he starts at around 7.06/1, he could nudge up to 11.010/1 in-play.

Kitaabaat has gone up 2lb for his latest success, and for a horse with proven stamina, he is very much unexposed over middle distances. I wouldn't be too concerned with the draw in 12 as he tends to be dropped in anyway.
