Back Red October in the 18:45 at Kempton

The hunt is on

18:45 Kempton - Red October

Red October is taken to upset the short priced favourite in this novice stakes.

This colt caught the eye on debut when finishing second to Jersey Wonder at Salisbury last month. He missed the break, but put in some solid work in the closing stages and finished the race with good energy. This was a promising effort and clearly has a lot more to offer. At present he is trading at 5.85/1 on the exchange which is more than fair.

Blue Mountain is the favourite at 2.486/4 on the exchange. He was beaten a nose behind Indomitable in a Chester novice stakes last month on soft ground. He is another improver, but looks short enough taking the surface switch in to account.

Fanshawe Knows

19:15 Kempton - Knowing

Knowing should open his account in this interesting contest.

This Pour Moi colt finished a closing third on debut to Fragrant Bell at Lingfield last month. He got the hang of things inside the final furlong and finished strongly without troubling the first two. I think he is open to a good deal of improvement, and is reasonably priced at 3.211/5 on the exchange. In addition the James Fanshawe stable is beginning to hit form, which is an added bonus.

James Park Woods is the market leader at 3.02/1 on the exchange. He was beaten a fair way when finishing fifth to Royal Marine at Doncaster last month, but comes from a good family and was an expensive breeze-up purchase.
