Recommended Bets

- Back Each-Way War Department in the 15:05 Kempton at 7.87/1
- Lay Casper King in the 15:50 Exeter at 2.47/5
- Back Miracle Ninetynine in the 16:10 Kempton at 4.84/1

Our each-way play of the day comes in the 15:05 Kempton which is a handicap being run over seven furlongs. Keith Dalgleish's War Department gets the nod here having been in good form of late finishing in the frame in each of his last three outings. Our selection has been edging up the weights recently but is likely to give his running again and with blinkers applied this will hopefully be enough to see him hit the frame again. We recommend backing War Department at his current price of 7.87/1 having been backed in from as big as 10.519/2 this morning.

We turn our attention to the jumps action at Exeter for our lay bet of the day. We've decided to take on the Phillip Hobbs-trained Casper King which runs in the maiden hurdle at 15:50. Last time out Richard Johnson's mount was quite green down at the start and pulled hard through the early stages which ultimately probably cost him the race. Having finished second on six on its last seven starts we're hopeful that he'll find one too good for him again today in what looks a rather competitive race, and we recommend laying him at his current trading price of 2.47/5.

We're heading to Kempton for our back bet of the day which comes in the 16:10 1m handicap. Our selection here is Miracle Ninetynine who was a very good third of nine last time out at Chelmsford when finishing strongly and only going down by a length and a half to the eventual winner. Based on that run one would imagine that a stiffer test is likely to suit so the step up to a mile should be in our selections favour. A hood is also applied today and there has been plenty of money knocking around all morning for Ed Vaughan's charge having being backed from 8.07/1 into 4.84/1. This would suggest that connections are confident of a big run and we recommend following the gamble and backing Miracle Ninetynine at its current trading price of 4.84/1.
