Kempton Park hosts an interesting evening meeting tonight, and that is where we head for today's attempt at the Placepot.
"The interesting one here is the unexposed Flying Hammer, who comfortably won his maiden at Chepstow last time under a hands-and-heels ride..."
17:55- With little to recommend for most of the field here, the completely unexposed Poyle Sophie stands out as a strong option in our first race, having her first start in handicaps from a workable mark, and with the step up in trip expected to suit.
18:25- Wickedly Smart was an expensive purchase and is worth another chance here to build on her eye-catching debut effort, having been slightly disappointing since, and is preferred to Capelita, who has had plenty of chances and is vulnerable to improvers.
18:55- Hard to see Mirror City out of the places here after a promising third on debut, and being from the Charlie Appleby yard, there will likely be plenty more to come with that experience under her belt.
19:25- The interesting one here is the unexposed Flying Hammer, who comfortably won his maiden at Chepstow last time under a hands-and-heels ride, and is expected to make a successful handicap debut for the William Haggas yard, who are flying at present.
19:55- This is a tight contest but Fresh Kingdom is certainly one to note back at this track and on this surface, after a couple of disappointing efforts on soft ground since his game win here over 12 furlongs in June. Frederick Chopin is also worth including after some creditable efforts at Lingfield recently, he could also make the places back over the C&D where he won his first race for the Michael Appleby yard.
20:25- This is very competitive but 400,000gn purchase Soluble is the only pace setter in the field, and is expected to go close with a tactically sound ride from Andrea Atzeni. Molten Lava has strung together two wins since being gelded, and probably has more to offer after winning a muddling race last time at Leicester.
