Kempton Placepot: Tuesday April 1
Matt Gardner heads to Kempton for Tuesday's crack at the Placepot...
"Welsh Sunrise will take plenty of pegging back and can gain compensation for that reversal with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle..."
14:20 - Hill Of Dreams returned to winning ways with an emphatic success over C&D last week, beating Nubar Boy by three lengths, and she makes plenty of appeal under a penalty. She's not the most consistent, but went back-to-back last year and could well repeat the dose.
14:50 - Abseil and Heisman are both of interest on debut but Bustropher is very much the one to beat. He finished runner-up in the Wood Ditton last year and ran to a similar level when filling the same spot at Meydan in February. He could yet have a bit more to offer and should go close to getting off the mark.
15:50 - Welsh Sunrise is thriving at present, unlucky not to land the hat-trick last time after conceding first run to the winner. He will take plenty of pegging back and can gain compensation for that reversal with Ryan Moore taking over in the saddle.
15:50 - Economy, a son of Group 1 winner Quiff, made a promising start to his career when finishing second on debut at Lingfield last year. It's a bit of a concern that he's not been seen since, though Sir Michael Stoute is hardly one to rush his horses, and he is expected to go one better here.
16:20 - Sporting Gold heads the market but I've got slight reservations about him and it may pay to take him on with Jakey and Swift Blade. The first mentioned won at Epsom in September, wasn't disgraced on handicap debut and now has the assistance of Ryan Moore in the saddle, whilst Swift Blade is 2 lb worse off with Sporting Gold than when beating him by a narrow margin last month, but is clearly in fine form and should go well again.
16:50 - Captain Mo ran to just a modest level in maidens but took a step forward, when upped in trip, to score on handicap debut at Lingfield in February. He remains relatively unexposed and goes into the permutation alongside Mary Le Bow, who was a bit disappointing last time but was steadily progressive until that point and is worth another chance.
