Timeform on Cepheus
Cepheus - 18:45 Kempton
Cepheus belied big odds to get off the mark at the first time of asking at Newmarket last August, and has arguably had his sights raised too high since. He found the 2000 Guineas all too much on his return to action last month, and could only manage sixth at Royal Ascot on his latest appearance, but he did run very well in what was a warm handicap on the latter occasion, and this looks an altogether easier task for him, up against older, more exposed horses, so he is a confident selection to bounce back to winning ways.
Halfacrown - 20:45 Kempton
A modest maiden handicapper for Jamie Osbourne, Halfacrown showed very little during the first part of this year, finishing ninth and sixth at Wolverhampton, before beating home just four of his ten rivals at Lingfield on his final start in February. The switch to James Evans's yard may spark some improvement, but he still has plenty to find to have a say in this race, particularly after an absence of 145 days, and the market looks to have overestimated his chances.
Swinley Forest - 19:45 Kempton
29% - William Buick's strike rate at Kempton
Swinley Forest raced a total of eight times as a juvenile, and having been gelded after eight months off, he took his form to a new level when runner-up over this course and distance last month. He is still open to improvement, and a mark of 72 looks a workable one, particularly with William Buick, who has an enviable record at this track, taking over in the saddle.
