Daily Racing Multiple: Back Godolphin pair in this 8/1 Wednesday treble

Kempton
Two legs of Wednesday's multiple are running at Kempton this evening

There are three picks for the Daily Racing Multiple column on Wednesday with the treble paying just over 8/1 on the Sportsbook...

"You won't see a better pedigree for the whole evening as a Dubawi out of Mark Johnston's 2015 Cheveley Park winner Lumiere, and a grandson of Shamardal."

Count on Present to beat Skatman

12:45 Musselburgh - Back Presentandcounting

Real Stone hit 1.051/20 in the run and fell at the last yesterday when well clear. After that, it wasn't going to be our day.

The opener at Musselburgh looks a poor race and is a match bet effectively between Skatman and Presentandcounting. The former is trained by Paul Nicholls and makes his hurdling debut, but he hasn't been seen for over 400 days.

Presentandcounting won a Newcastle AW bumper, and while form of those races means nothing, he settled better, something that has been a problem in the past with his free-going tendencies.

With four runs over hurdles and a best effort at Bangor, I like the idea of giving him his head here at another speed venue. He is 4/5 on the Sportsbook and it's 25/1 bar after Skatman.

Back the newcomer for the middle leg

18:20 Kempton - Back Knight's Town

We'll keep this fairly brief with our second selection as it's a newcomer for Charlie Appleby - a trainer ripping along at a 37% win rate at the moment.

Knight's Town has to overcome a wide draw in 14, but he has Ryan Moore on and sometimes in these sort of races there isn't much pace on early.

Godolphin don't have too many Dansili offspring and he's a sire with an excellent record at Kempton at 17% win and 40% placed. I've included him as I like his price to boost the treble.

Highland to strut his stuff for Appleby

18:50 Kempton - Back Highland Avenue

With "The Road To Kentucky Derby" in the title, I am fairly sure this is a "win and you're in" race, something Kempton had years ago and a whole card at that. I'm pleased they have resurrected this, and it's no surprise William Haggas (don't call him Willie) and Appleby have got runners.

The Godolphin horse is 8/11 on the Sportsbook, which is understandable with they way he produced the goods emphatically last time over CD winning by over five lengths. That race wasn't as deep as his debut - and he was turned over at 1/4 in that.

You won't see a better pedigree for the whole evening as a Dubawi out of Mark Johnston's 2015 Cheveley Park winner Lumiere, and a grandson of Shamardal, whose progeny love polytrack. Yes, he is short, but his rival Alto Volante's win is form that doesn't look as strong.
