Today's best bet Hippocampus runs at Kempton

Nick Shiambouros drew a blank yesterday, but is hoping to snag some pre-Aintree cash with a win and place selection from the meeting at Kempton...


"He definitely needed the outing, and should know a lot more today."

18:15 Kempton - Hippocampus


Hippocampus could run well at a decent price in this interesting maiden.

This colt was nicely backed on debut when finishing fifth to Glorious Power at Lingfield last month. He missed the break, and failed to land a blow behind the game winner. He definitely needed the outing, and should know a lot more today. I think he is open to a fair amount of improvement, and is attractively priced at 10.519/2 on the exchange. The stable is in good form which is an added bonus.

Bowerman is the obvious danger. He was just touched off by Stradivarius on debut at Newcastle and is a deserving favourite. At present he is trading at 1.8810/11 on the exchange which is a little short.


19:45 Kempton - Preobrajenska


Preobrajenska looks solid place material in this handicap.

This filly put in a much improved effort when beating Global Alexander in a maiden over this course last month. She swooped to take the lead deep inside the final furlong to win a shade comfortably. She looks fairly treated on handicap debut, and the race could set up nicely for her to deliver a late challenge. At present she is trading at 2.35/4 on the exchange.

Mitigate is the current favourite at 3.052/1. She bolted up in a Lingfield maiden, and has the services of Ryan Moore. She clearly has more to offer and looks fairly treated.
