Timeform on Sister Sibyl

12:55 - Disappointing to see just two take their chance in this, a theme at Kempton this afternoon, but clear preference is for DANNY KIRWAN (3), who beat a useful type in the form of Pym (who's gone on to finish second in a Grade 2 novice hurdle at Cheltenham recently) in a bumper here in February. He struggled in a Graded bumper at Aintree on his most recent start in April, but he remains a good prospect for this sphere and is fancied to get the better of Crooks Peak, who has a win under his belt and Richard Johnson aboard, but has only shown fairly useful form so far.

13:30 - Just the three due to head to post for this beginners' chase, one which is likely to develop into a match between CHESTERFIELD (1) and Dell Oro. The former lacks the physical scope of the latter, but he was superior over hurdles, and has the benefit of experience here, too. Chesterfield is winless in two starts so far, but he has been shaping well, and can get off the mark at the third time of asking.

14:05 - Slowly but surely, the field sizes are creeping up, and the one who stands out in this four-runner contest is MIA'S STORM (3), who made a successful reappearance in a competitive handicap at Uttoxeter last month. She's a long way clear on these terms from a form perspective, and can pick up this listed contest on her way to more esteemed assignments later in the season.

14:35 - SISTER SIBYL (2) shaped well in novice company on her reappearance at Cheltenham last month, and just 4 lb higher than for her last success at Warwick in May, she can prove she's still ahead of her mark by going in again. Tommy Silver is well capable off this mark on his peak efforts and heads the dangers along with the thriving Roll The Dough.

15:10 - IT'S GOT LEGS (7) acquitted himself well when second over two and a half miles at Ascot at the beginning of the month, keeping on well on the run-in and giving the impression that he would stay further yet. As such, he looks well worth a try at 3 miles today, off the same mark as last time. Plantagenet is holding his form well at the moment and is next best, ahead of No Hiding Place.

15:40 - FAIRWAY FREDDY (6) showed much improve form to make an impressive handicap debut at Wincanton on Thursday; the sound gallop enabling him to settle much better, pulling away to score by 7 lengths and looking a long way ahead of his opening mark in the process. He's from a good jumping family, and with more to come from him yet, he should prove very difficult to beat. Sao will be a threat if settling better but, as things stand, the selection may have most to fear from the Alan King-trained duo Mick Maestro and Nylon Speed.
