Kempton Park racecourse
There's an eight-race card on the All-Weather at Kempton on Wednesday evening.

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kempton Park on Wednesday...

"...a 4 lb rise for that run looks generous considering he pulled 9 lengths clear of the remainder."

Timeform on Ulster

Stay Forever - Kempton 17:10

This novice contest looks a particularly open one, but Stay Forever makes plenty of appeal, having bounced back to form to finish second at Southwell at the end of last month. She was beaten fair and square that day, but pulled well clear of the field in the process, but a repeat of that run would give her leading claims of going one better here, with the drop back in trip unlikely to hinder her. The Dancing Poet, Scorched Breath and Altar Boy are others with form claims, while a market move for the newcomers Just Benjamin and/or May Sonic would be interesting.

Ulster - Kempton 17:45

Ulster has very much been on an upward curve in three starts so far this year, winning his first two at this track, and while he was beaten at Wolverhampton last time out, finishing second, that was still and improvement, running to a useful level. He was only headed in the dying strides that day, and a 4 lb rise for that run looks generous considering he pulled 9 lengths clear of the remainder. He's taken to return to winning ways at the expense of Busy Street, who's been in good form himself of late for Michael Appleby, while Technological is another to consider.

Torolight- Kempton 18:15

Torolight shaped well when fourth at Chelmsford after a 107-day absence last month, with his position towards the rear of the field preventing him from having a serious involvement. He shaped as though he'd be better for that run, and looks to have every chance of taking this having been dropped 1 lb by the handicapper, considering he won over C&D back in November. Heatherdown has made a solid start in handicaps and is expected to figure prominently on his first outing for new trainer Ian Williams, while last-time-out C&D runner-up Picture Poet also makes the shortlist.
