Timeform take you through the card at Kempton on Wednesday.


17:45 - FAST AND HOT (11) has been doing nothing wrong from this sort of mark of late, following his win at Lingfield in July with four solid in-the-frame efforts. His third at Bath last time where he was hampered inside the final furlong was probably just about his best effort to date, and he should remain competitive here from a good draw. LIVE DANGEROUSLY (9) was not the most straightforward in the past, but has some solid form to his name in 2016, and did well to finish fourth at Brighton last time under an aggressive ride. He is also worth including.

18:15 - This is very open stuff and could prove a tricky leg. SUNSHINEANDBUBBLES (13) represents an in-form yard and could do better for the re-fitting of cheekpeices (absent last time in below-par effort). She was shaping up well enough prior to that (made the frame at Lingfield twice and at Wolverhampton) and could run well at a big price. FLUTTERBEE (1) has been in good form at Les Landes recently (won there in August and September) and remains on a competitive mark based on her third from this mark at Chepstow in July, so is also one to be with.

18:45 - GERALDINE (11) finished behind Spin Top over five furlongs here earlier this month, but she shaped as though the return to six furlongs would be very much in her favour, so is expected to reverse those placings today on just her second start in handicaps. She is bred to be better than a mark of 56, and should win this.

19:15 - Red Trooper is certainly up to winning a race of this type but does have an absence to overcome, and the solid option could be COMMODITY (1) who was still learning (not knocked about) when third at Windsor last time and remains capable of better with that under his belt.

19:45 - Neither Volition nor Owaseyf appeal as being that well treated from their respective marks, and it could be worth taking them on with MAJOR CRISPIES (1), who is not one for maximum faith but is well handicapped and does have George Baker taking over in the saddle. PANTHER PATROL (7), who has been in reasonably good form in four starts this season and could be suited by a return to the all-weather (four of his six wins have come on polytrack), is also worth including.

20:15 - Red Rannagh is set to be held up here off what will probably not be an overly strong gallop, and could be one to take on as favourite. FASHION PARADE (3) represents an in-form yard and produced her best effort to date when third over 11 furlongs here last time. She shapes as though she will perhaps improve for the extra furlong here today and should run well.

20:45 - Zlatan isn't one for maximum faith and with him as favourite it could be worth chancing FAST SPRITE (4) against him. Fast Sprite was a ready winner on his penultimate start at Chelmsford, before finishing a good fourth in a better race than this over C&D last time despite being trapped wide throughout. George Baker takes over in the saddle today and he looks a good bet.

21:15 - A few non-runners doesn't make the eighth race much easier to solve, but it is hard to ignore the support for the well-handicapped Furiant and he should run well with Richard Kingscote taking over in the saddle.
