Timeform take you through the card at Kempton on Wednesday evening...


17:40 - TONY SOPRANO (6) is bred to get a mile but shouldn't have any problem dropping back to seven furlongs here given how he travelled through his race at Chepstow last time, and he looks a solid Placepot option. One that is of interest at a bigger price is SURREY BLAZE (14), who hasn't shown much to date but was a fairly expensive breeze-up buy and could well improve for a switch to the all-weather following a break and gelding operation.

18:10 - MANTHOOR (7) remains a maiden after three starts but has improved with each of his starts to date, and should be able to get off the mark here if taking another step forward. He ran well behind the well-fancied Society Power at Lingfield last time, and probably doesn't face a rival of that calibre here, for all that Nicklaus and Corrosive are the types to do much better second time out.

18:40 - Plenty of William Haggas' two-year-olds improve for the run and if BARTON MILLS (1) can do the same then he will be extremely hard to beat, having been beaten only half a length here last time despite being very green. The fifth from that race has franked the form since, and Barton Mills looks to have plenty in his favour here.

19:10 - An open race and a very open betting market at this stage. SAROOKH (10) has the benefit of experience over his owner's other two runners in the race, having made a pleasing debut when fourth at Newcastle last time, and he is worth including for the Placepot here. IT'S NOT UNUSUAL (11) was well backed on debut when fourth here over seven furlongs in July, and is worth another chance to build on that now back on the all-weather given her sire.

19:40 - Cape To Cuba sets the standard on her second at Doncaster in June but reportedly suffered a breathing problem on her next start, and was then well beaten at Thirsk last time (albeit on very testing ground), so she looks to have plenty to prove at present. This isn't a deep race by any means, and PSYCHOTIC (2) looks to be the most solid option, having still looked in need of the experience when fifth at Goodwood on his last start. He remains open to further improvement after just two starts and can make his first start on all-weather a winning one.

20:10 - Special Relation could be well treated based on his beating of Tor (who has since won from 10 lb higher in the weights) at Pontefract in June, and is a worthy favourite here, but it is a surprise to see POW WOW (8) at such a big price against him, given he is also an unexposed three-year-old. Pow Wow takes on his elders for the first time here after landing a hat-trick in handicaps on his final start for Roger Charlton in June. He could get an easy time of things out in front under Oisin Murphy, and looks worth chancing at the prices.

20:40 - Intrepidly looks the most likely winner, having had much less racing than the majority of this field, and with a win here over seven furlongs already to his name. He beat the progressive Anythingtoday at Windsor last time and should have even more to offer if running his race after a short break.

21:10 - A very lop-sided market but Atlanta Belle looks the most likely winner after winning here last time in good style. Less exposed than most in this field, she's up 4 lb in the weights but only slightly up in grade, so makes most appeal.


Win back POW WOW (8) in the 20:10 at Kempton

Placepot permutation:

17:40 - 6, 14
18:10 - 7
18:40 - 1
19:10 - 10, 11
19:40 - 2
20:10 - 8
