Kempton Racing Tips: Royal Tapestry has even more to offer

There is all-weather racing at Kempton on Monday

"A subsequent 5 lb rise is workable and he remains a horse to keep on the right side..."

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

Kempton NAP - 17:00 - Back Royal Tapestry

Royal Tapestry was well backed and showed improved form on his handicap debut over a mile at Lingfield earlier this month, not as well positioned as the eventual winner but staying on strongly to the line, and he confirmed the promise of that run when opening his account over the same course and distance 13 days ago.

He was given a confident ride on that occasion, making good headway in the final furlong and scoring with a bit more in hand than the official margin suggests. A subsequent 5 lb rise is workable and he remains a horse to keep on the right side.

Kempton Next Best - 19:00 - Back Perseus Way

Perseus Way developed into a useful novice hurdler for Gary Moore following a successful Flat campaign for this yard in 2021/22 and he made an encouraging return to this sphere back with Owen Burrows when runner-up over 11 furlongs at this course last month.

He was well backed on his first start for six months, and was unlucky to bump into an improver, but he was only headed in the final furlong before looking one paced in the final 50 yards.

That run will surely have put an edge on his and he looks very interesting now stepping up to two miles, still low mileage in this sphere and the type to progress further now having more emphasis placed on stamina.

Back Perseus Way @ 4.94/1 on Betfair Exchange
