  • Olympic Candle looks well above average

Kempton - 17:15: Back Age Of Baroque

After Charlie Appleby's four-timer at Yarmouth earlier in the week, I am kicking myself for not including at least one of the others away from Wednesday's impressive winner Sapphire Seas, but Appleby did say earlier in the season that he has some good young horses coming out, and I would be disappointed if he doesn't hit the target at least once at Kempton for this evening's card.

Age Of Baroque was a slight drifter this morning on the Sportsbook to 5/23.50, and that will do as a first leg, and the 2yo Lope De Vega cost a huge 575k. Now, those figures don't always translate to the track, but the sire has an excellent record in terms of places at Kempton with a 31% strike-rate against the win-rate of 12%.

The trainer is now up to 33% in the last two weeks and is 3-7 at 43% with his juveniles this term.

Kempton - 18:15: Back Olympic Candle

Fellow Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor has been way down the pecking order out of the two handlers in terms of getting early types, but this season has some good juveniles, and certainly more than he was used to, with Olympic Candle looking one who potentially turn into a decent performer.

That verdict is judged on his Ascot win last time and the 2yo put his experience to good use from his Newbury debut to impress at the Berkshire track.

Oisin Murphy was full of praise for the 2yo colt after that win by saying: "He was a push-button ride and might sharpen up for that and be a six-furlong horse, but we'll see what Saeed thinks and how he comes out of that," and it certainly looked good visually.

The pace was quite slow, but two of his final three furlongs were both sub-12 seconds on a stiff track, which bodes well for switching to Kempton as you do need to stay well.

He ran behind Dancing Gemini at Newbury and that horse advertised the form strongly last week at Doncaster with a 4L win at Listed level, and the selection may be a short price today under a penalty, but it's hard to see him beaten here with a good draw too in five under Murphy.
