Sunday's Placepot comes from the only surviving British meeting, at Kempton.

"Despite some opposition to Barwah emerging in the betting, she remains our best option."

13:05 - This is a tricky handicap in which we'll need to take two. Indian Affair is a relatively consistent sort and got back to form last time having presumably needed his previous run to find full fitness. Wedgewood Estates is similarly reliable, his only recent blip coming when he went up to seven furlongs, a trip he seems not to stay.

13:35 - There's no doubt that Chelwood Gate has his quirks, but they haven't prevented him from improving of late and this sort of race appeals as just the type to help him settle and make the places again.

14:05 - Despite some opposition to Barwah emerging in the betting, she remains our best option. She won against the grain over C&D on Wednesday and will be in the first three again in the least so long as this doesn't prove too quick a turnaround.

14:35 - Though Rock Charm is less exposed, The Yank has a consistent profile and plenty of form over this C&D and others similar. He's also unlikely to carry all the 'unnamed favourite' money, which gives him an extra edge.

15:05 - We've taken enough small risks up to now that, presented here with a tricky leg, we can hide behind the favourite and obvious type for our perm. Evident has often shaped as though worth a try in sprints and he combined that latent speed with a reduced mark to score over C&D last time. He's still well in from 6 lb higher and gets in our perm.

15:35 - We can afford a couple in the last leg, which is just as well as there are three major contenders for two places. One of them, Happy Valentine, is returning from a long lay-off so our two have to be Boom The Groom and Hallelujah.
