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


16:25 - LADY JOANNA VASSA (3) impressed with the way she quickened up to win at Newcastle last time (without a completely clear passage), and should run well again for a yard in red-hot form. TASAABOQ (8) also represents an in-form trainer and should be capable of continuing his good run now back from a break.

16:55 - MEMORIES GALORE (2) was left poorly placed at Wolverhampton last time and, normally one whose consistency is hard to knock, should be able to bounce back to form now back down in grade, having previously shaped as though this sort of mark may not be beyond him.

17:25 - BIRD TO LOVE (1) is related to some precocious sorts (her dam and two half-sisters have all won as two-year-olds) and should be capable of running well first time up for a yard who are looking for their ninth two-year-old debutant winner of the season.

17:55 - ASHWAQ (1) did best of the newcomers in an interesting maiden at Newmarket last time, where she showed up well in front before fading back into third. She should improve from that, and the speed she showed that day means that this drop back in trip will be no problem (mainly a sprinting pedigree, too).

18:25 - African Beat, Poetic Force and Wordsearch (currently occupying the first three places in the betting for this race) have wide draws to overcome and could be worth taking on for the Placepot. LORD CLENAGHCASTLE (6) is much better birthed and had excuses (poorly placed) last time at Brighton, where he lost his unbeaten record on his third start. By Big Bad Bob, he should appreciate the step up to a mile, and is worth chancing considering the draws of some of the principals here. HABBAD (7) was not seen to best effect last time (trapped wide) and, with the step up to a mile also set to suit, is also worth including for the Placepot.

18:55 - BELIEVE IT (5) hasn't had that many starts at this trip and has some solid form to his name at the likes of Lingfield in May (winner won next time out) and over seven furlongs at Wolverhampton on his penultimate start (split two next-time-out winners). He could have more to offer and is worth including for Placepot purposes. It is a slight concern that both of Ebbisham's best performances have come on the back of breaks, and the second best option could be RIGHTWAY (3), who was helped by being held up in a strongly run race last time and should get a similar scenario this evening.

19:25 - Easy to see why Mr Marchwood has been supported into favouritism here given that he is lightly raced over this trip and wasn't seen to best effect last time. The return to this track and of in-form jockey Callum Sheperd look positives and he should go close.

19:55 - A fairly tricky conclusion in which Honcho looks a fairly ordinary favourite given his strike-rate. The booking of Adam Kirby as he drops in grade may well prove significant, however.


Win back LORD CLENAGHCASTLE in the 18:25

Placepot permutation:

16:25 - 3, 8
16:55 - 2
17:25 - 1
17:55 - 1
18:25 - 6, 7
18:55 - 3, 5
