Timeform pick out three bets from Kempton on Thursday...

"Down in trip here, he makes appeal."

Bill Cody - 17:55 Kempton

Bill Cody wasn't seen to best effect here on Friday (poorly placed in a tactical race that was won from the front) and is worth another chance to build on his promising handicap debut where he finished third behind the subsequent winner Mr Carbonator. Barnay was a good second over C&D last week and is next best ahead of Freebe Rocks.

Azam - 19:30 Kempton

Current connections of Azam haven't found the key to him yet, but he continues to edge down the weights and shaped better than the distance beaten suggests at Wolverhampton last time, travelling well for a long way before his stamina seemingly gave way. Down in trip here, he makes appeal. Hat-trick seeking Thaqaffa is an obvious threat, while Warm Oasis remains unexposed ahead of his handicap debut.

Fiftyshadesofgrey - 20:00 Kempton

This is the easiest race that Fiftyshadesofgrey has contested for some time (placed here from 5 lb higher in the weights last winter), and he makes appeal from a falling with his reappearance under his belt, the booking of Adam Kirby a statement of intent. Bobby Wheeler needs to settle better under his young claimer than he did here a fortnight ago but is clearly on a good mark. Mr Bossy Boots could also figure.
