Kempton Racing Tips: Arclight can put it up to the boys

There is a cracking card at Kempton on Saturday

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Kempton on Saturday.

"...she brings a rock-solid profile to the table and still has even more to offer..."
  • A Kempton Nap and Next Best from Timeform

  • Kempton Nap - 14:27 - Back Arclight

    This looks an open renewal of the Pendil Novices' Chase and Arclight, the only mare in the field, is fancied to put it up to the boys.

    She has made an excellent start over fences this season, winning all three of her starts, the last two coming in listed events for mares.

    Those races are working out particularly well, too, and she left the impression last time - when beating a subsequent two-time winner - that she will be up to competing in a higher grade.

    Her electric and accurate jumping is a particular standout attribute and, with some question marks surrounding her rivals, she brings a rock-solid profile to the table and still has even more to offer.

    Kempton Next Best - 15:37 - Back Blackjack Magic

    Blackjack Magic was progressive over fences last season, and produced a big career-best effort when making a winning reappearance in the Badger Beer Handicap Chase at Wincanton.

    He beat Threeunderthrufive with plenty in hand that day, and that rival has since gone on to boost the form, winning a competitive handicap at Ascot last weekend.

    Blackjack Magic hasn't progressed as expected in two starts since, but he hasn't had his ideal conditions, and he shaped much better than the bare result at Sandown last time.

    The return to softer ground is a big plus for him and he is only 6 lb higher than for his Wincanton success, so must have a big chance with first-time blinkers fitted.
