Timeform pick out three bets from the jumps racing at Kempton on Sunday...


Next Sensation - 14:30 Kempton

Next Sensation put in his best effort for some time on the back of a three-month break and following a breathing operation when winning at Newton Abbot last month. His last win prior to that came in the 2015 Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival, and he is still well treated from this mark based on that (win came from 9 lb higher in the weights). Noche de Reyes ended last season with three good runs and could be the selection's main danger if returning in good order here.

Shady Glen - 15:35 Kempton

Shady Glen has made giant strides over fences this summer, winning twice and posting seconds at Stratford and Worcester (when last seen). His last start was an admirable effort given that he was up 12 lb in the weights and up in grade following his last win, and he is taken to return to winning ways now eased in grade slightly. Strumble Head had excuses last time (did too much too soon) and is the type to bounce back.

My Tent Or Yours - 16:10 Kempton

A real treat to see My Tent Or Yours - second in two Champion Hurdles - out at this relatively early stage in the season, and as a horse who has an excellent record when fresh, he is fully expected to make a winning return in receipt of weight from the majority of the field. His second to Annie Power in last season's Champion Hurdle after nearly two years off the track was a huge effort, and if running to anywhere near that sort of level in this race he will be very hard to beat. His stable-companion Hargam should come on for his return at Tipperary last time and could give Nicky Henderson a 1-2.
