Timeform on Almighwar

Almighwar - 16:25 Kempton

Almighwar is bred to do a lot better than he showed when well beaten on debut at Newmarket in October, ultimately found wanting for know-how. His dam was an Oaks, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner, as well as placing in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, so it's fair to say a lot more will be expected of him on his second outing, and with this step up in trip likely to suit, he is taken to show improved form and get off the mark at the second attempt.

Qaaraat - 14:05 Wolverhampton

Qaaraat ran creditably on his return to action at Lingfield earlier this month, travelling as well as any but unable to find any extra close home. He was below form on his subsequent outing six days later however, unable to quicken after getting a gap at Beverly. Antony Brittain's charge is a relatively consistent sort, hitting the frame six times in 2020, but has won just two times in his 45 races, and there isn't an awful lot to suggest he will be adding to that record here.

Smart Stat
Alpine Springs - 13:55 Kempton

£18.07 - Michael Bell's profit to a £1 level stake with horses being stepped up in trip

Alpine Springs showed ability when fourth on debut at Newcastle earlier this month, threatening a bit more than she ultimately delivered. The second home that day has since come out and won, and with Michael Bell's charge likely to be much better for the run, as well as for the step up to seven furlongs, she is taken to make her second start a winning one.
