Timeform take you through the card at Kempton on Wednesday evening.

"Provided they go a decent enough gallop, this dual C&D winner should be there or thereabouts."

18:20 - Handicap debutant Bunbury is a short price here after catching the eye in a big way last time at Windsor when finishing fifth under a considerate ride. He is capable of much better than he has shown in maidens and is hard to leave out here, though he is now short enough for betting purposes from a fairly high draw. Thecornishbarron could be worth a small bet at a double-figure price after he probably should have won at Newmarket last time (conceded first run and finished with a flourish).

18:50 - Charles Hills saddled a winner and a third from his two three-year-old debutants that have run this month, and Marbooh can follow suit and get into the places here in what looks an open maiden on paper, with none of the previously raced horses setting an outstanding standard. Marbooh's half-brother Intiwin was sharp early on in his career, and he should be set to run well first time out.

19:20 - Tournament has been well backed with Jamie Spencer - who won on him on debut for this yard from a BHA mark of 87 - back on board from a BHA mark of 78. Tournament could be better on polytrack compared to turf, and is worth including here along with Sovereign Bounty who is lightly raced for a four-year-old and shaped best of those racing prominently when second at Wetherby last time.

19:50 - Hard not to include Al Khafji, who was an impressive winner of Lingfield nursery on his final start of last season and should be suited by the step up to this trip. Gold Faith was strong at the finish when winning a maiden here over seven furlongs last season and though he is sired by a sprinter, there is stamina on his dam's side and he is an interesting proposition now stepped up in trip after shaping as if better for the run at Epsom on the first start of his three-year-old campaign.

20:20 - The form of his yard is slightly concerning, but it is easy to see the well drawn Memories Galore running well here back on polytrack after progressing nicely through handicaps last season. The Big Lad has not been as lucky with the draw, but is another who may benefit from reverting to an artificial surface after he pulled his chance away and finished well held on his turf debut at Ascot last time. He may well have more to offer and provided they go a decent enough gallop, this dual C&D winner should be there or thereabouts.

20:50 - Fern Owl is settling better these days and may well have the stamina to see out this longer trip, but the safer option for the Placepot could be Snow Conditions, who did well to win over C&D last time after being tapped for toe at a crucial stage. She is unexposed over these sorts of trips and may well be capable of better, seeing as her last effort was her best performance to date. Secure Cloud looks well treated on his return from a long absence but the lack of market support means it is hard to have much faith.
