"He has dropped to his last winning handicap mark, and still looks worth a bet at 6.611/2."

14:20- Nouvelle Ere won over C&D last time after being granted the run of the race, and he may well repeat that effort here with a low draw and little competition for the lead. He is asked to defy another career-high mark, however, and although a rightful favourite, does not really warrant a bet.

2:50- Sunbaked was undeniably unlucky not to win here over 7 furlongs last time when hampered in the final furlong, and will prove popular with Jamie Spencer up. Based on her strong finishing effort that day, the return to 6 furlongs is not a natural move, however, and with a few unknowns in the field, including Richard Hannon's unexposed Walaaa, this race is no given for Sunbaked.

15:20- A big field here, but very little obvious pace, and the potential for a messy affair. The likes of Monsieur Valentine and Dandys Perier have both made the running in the past, but their recent form is far from inspiring as far as betting prospects go.

15:50- Golden Stunner has progressed with each start for Ralph Beckett, and sets the standard on her good second at Windsor last time. She is the most likely winner, with Saeed Bin Suroor's representative Peaceful Journey probably the biggest danger, given her yard's prolific recent strike rate with their two-year-olds first time out. With Doctor Serena another big danger, the 3.613/5 about Golden Stunner is not quite tempting enough to recommend her as a bet here.

16:20- The newcomers here don't appear to be anything special, and this can go to one of the fillies with prior experience. In truth, there is little to split Up To You, Mytimehascome and Pure Fantasy on form and potential, so this maiden is again best watched.

16:50- Flying Fantasy is the interesting one here, and has been well supported throughout the morning on his first all-weather start for Stuart Williams since leaving William Haggas. Flying Fantasy has already shown his ability on polytrack for his former yard, and is sure to improve for the return to a mile. He has dropped to his last winning handicap mark, and still looks worth a bet at 6.611/2.

17:20- Big Time has made a solid start to life for David Nicholls and has been well punted throughout the morning, so is due plenty of respect. He won't get an easy time up front though, with Loyalty in the stall next to him also very likely to go forward, and his price is about right on what we know of him. A decent gallop will suit Trucanini, who is a player on her second to subsequent winner Big Whiskey over C&D in September, but the bet of the race could be Foreign Diplomat, who just failed to pin back a course specialist at Wolverhampton last time, and looks on a workable mark on just his fourth start for the excellent David O'Meara yard.

17:50- Big Lad commands respect on his handicap debut for Richard Hughes after making a winning start last time, but this is a competitive little sprint, and a far cry from the steady 7-runner Lingfield maiden that he won, so he looks short enough in the betting with that in mind. Humour is a player on his second at Chelmsford last time, where he finished best of those prominent, but stall 12 tempers enthusiasm somewhat, and Maymyo, a winner here over C&D under James Doyle two seasons ago, could be worth a bet, with small doubts around the two other principles.


Back Flying Fantasy in the 16:50 at Kempton 1pt win at 6.611/2
Back Foreign Diplomat in the 17:20 at Kempton 1pt win at 6.25/1
Back Maymyo in the 17:50 at Kempton 1pt win at 5.49/2
