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


17:55 - VOICEMAIL (1) has to concede weight all round, but could be the one to side with in an open maiden to start the card. She shaped with encouragement on debut at Thirsk in a race which is working out well and, although she didn't have to improve to land the odds at Ripon last time, she still remains capable of better. The runner-up that day has since come out and franked the form, and with a few of these having something to prove, she could be up to defying a penalty.

18:25 - Since being gelded and switched to the all-weather, MUDALLEL (4) has really got his act together, destroying a field over this C&D two weeks ago, even if a few of his rivals weren't seen to best effect. A subsequent 8 lb rise looks very much on the lenient side, and he will be hard to beat if turning up in the same form.

18:55 - The ones with experience don't set an exacting standard, and William Haggas's newcomer DIAGNOSTIC (3) is very strong in the market this morning. She is making her debut in a very winnable race, and the fact Haggas is in such good form at present further enhances her claims. Euqranian sets the standard of those with experience, though she is starting to look exposed, and Deleyla could prove the biggest danger.

19:25 - KERRERA (2) showed much improved form to get off the mark at Newmarket earlier this month, building on the promise of his reappearance run. Admittedly, that handicap didn't have much depth to it, but he shaped as though well ahead of his mark, and a subsequent 8 lb rise could well underestimate him granted the return to the all-weather isn't a hindrance.

19:55 - Kevin Ryan is going well at present and EYES ON ASHA (4) made a good impression when making a winning debut at Newcastle in March. Her sales price rocketed at the Breeze-Ups, costing connections €775,000, and she overcame greenness to score in taking fashion. Given the yard had to shut down for a period earlier this season, her absence isn't too much of a concern, and she looks leniently treated now entering handicaps.

20:25 - PERCY'S WORD (2) overcame greenness to make a winning start in a 1¼m maiden at this course on his sole start last year, getting the better of a couple from top yards that had the benefit of experience over him, and that form has a solid look to it. He shaped as though in need of the run on return at Leicester in April, but that form has also worked out, and though it's a slight concern we haven't seen him since, the return to an all-weather surface will suit, and Silvestre De Sousa on board for the first time further enhances his claims.

20:55 - CANADIAN ROYAL (8) is due to be 8 lb higher once he is reassessed for his improved effort in maiden company kicks in and holds obvious claims if he can transfer that level of form to back to the all-weather. See You Mush has held his own in handicaps this year and is likely to figure again, while Inlawed has yet to fire this year but her mark is coming down and it's interesting that Spencer takes the ride again.
