Kempton Placepot: Thursday March 21

Shahin heads to Kempton on Thursday

It's off to Kempton this evening for a crack at the placepot...

"Camachoice was quite impressive when breaking his duck in this headgear over C&D in January, and could be worth banking on in the finale" 

18.00 - With Atlantis Crossing a non runner there isn't much between the remaining three runners, all arriving in good heart. Including all three and hoping the outsider of the trio prevails is probably the best way to go.

18.30 - On all known evidence this looks a very weak maiden, and it's hard to envisage Storm not making the frame after an unlucky second on debut at Lingfield last month.

19.00 - The form of Al Khan's win over this C&D earlier this month has worked out well and his latest second at Wolverhampton last week shows he's still in good order. He makes plenty of appeal but Shaunas Spirit may also be worth including, having had valid excuses on both starts since her C&D win in January.

19.30 - McBirney was well held last time but that run was on fibresand, and before that he readily beat a subsequent winner over this C&D. He can be expected to bounce back off only 4 lb higher. With only two places available Mister Bob is also added to the perm. He may need to improve from this opening mark but he's bred to be useful and is by far the least exposed in the field.

20.00 - Several of these are open to progress at middle distances, notably Alshan Fajer and Dark Justice, but Flying Tempo is the pick of the weights by some way judged on a career best last time. JD Rockefeller failed to land a gamble on his handicap bow, but that support suggests he'll do better at some point, so is also included.

20.30 - Carry On Sydney and Gambolling Den are open to further improvement now handicapping and are likely to have a big say in matters, but Camachoice was quite impressive when breaking his duck in this headgear over C&D in January, and could be worth banking on in the finale.
