General thoughts on the day:
1:00 Lingfield – Majed is a high stat horse if fancied in the betting. Alacrity would be a fair stat horse if 9/1. Opec would be high stat if backed to single figure odds. Doesn’t look fancied. Most look unfancied. Majed is a lovely looking colt and a nice physical specimen. No value.
2:05 Lingfield – Interesting to see how Teraab goes on its fourth start. No value. Favourite looks a fair standard. Can’t see much happening here other than see how Fellowe’s horse goes.
4:05 Kempton – Timeless Charm is a short price for this Banded race. Boughey can go well on debut at short odds although on stats he is poor at bigger odds. Nothing To Fear ran ok last time out when a big price. The form of that race has been franked. The step up to 1m may help. Not giving anything away but may have each-way claims if prices allow. The betting should tell the story for most. Pratigya would need to be backed to hold strong claims. I’d definitely let the betting settle down unless taking a pre emptive bet.
5:15 Kempton – Wellborn is a high stat horse. Get The Music On has drifted in the betting and ran what looked to be a decent race last time out on testing going. I need to assess the race more to come to a conclusion.
5:45 Kempton – Topanga ran well on debut. Good chance but no value. Expected Arrival has a class 2 entry. Zelma was backed on debut but struggled in very testing ground. May be capable of better but difficult to assess. If backed, would give greater hope. Probably best to let the betting settle.
Main hopes (no value):
1:00 Lingfield – Majed
5:15 Kempton – Wellborn
5:45 Kempotn – Topanga
