Nicole claims a valuable seven pounds!

More exciting all weather action this evening where Kempton Park stage a seven race card with the first race due off at 5.35. Plenty of opportunities on the card for us but first lets familiarise ourselves with a few facts and figures relevant to this unique all weather venue .Kempton is the only right handed all weather circuit in the UK and results over the last few years indicate a definite bias towards low numbers in big fields in races up to seven furlongs. Don’t worry if you back a hold up horse,there’s a nice gap at the intersection of the track a couple of furlongs out where jockeys can often find gaps up the inside rail to deliver a late challenge.
Leading jockeys at the venue with mounts tonight include Jim Crowley,Adam Kirby and leading all weather rider Luke Morris. Trainers with runners tonight that normally do well here include Richard Hannon,Gary Moore and Tony Carroll. A couple of pointers perhaps from a few respected newspaper tipsters. David Milnes ,the Post’s Newmarket man, puts up Cutting It Fine in the maiden at 7.35 as his best bet on the card while Topspeed nominates Chateau Lola as his nap on the night in the sprint handicap at 6.05. Finally the most popular selection amongst the Racing Post tipsters is the Johnston horse Icelandic in the afore mentioned one mile maiden at 7.35.
Racing opens with the ten furlong handicap where course specialist Megalala looks for a seventh course and distance win .Don’t expect Megalala to hang around at the start he only has one way of running,made all never headed ! Tony Newcombe’s Dunhoy shaped well on his latest outing and is another with a chance in this trappy contest.
The six furlong three year old handicap at 6.05 looks a tricky contest but it is surely significant that jockey Franny Norton comes here for one mount only,JJ Leary for trainer Ian Williams, a yard that boasts a decent 43% strike rate with it’s handicappers here at Kempton. Watch also for Chateau Lola the six horse, as mentioned before ,Topspeed have put this filly up as their best bet on the card.
Another six furlong handicap at 6.35 this time for the older horses. Olivia Maylam’s Zip Lock looks to follow up a recent course and distance success under Georgie Baker while it should be noted that the eleven horse Best Trip finished third in this same race last season. Final mention for the well drawn nine horse Italian Tom,he has been the subject of a few decent each way bets already this morning.
Dual course and distance winner Qeethaara has her chance in the one mile handicap at 7.05 despite a steadier of nine stone seven. Others to respect here might be a rare Oliver Sherwood runner at Kempton Beetuna and the lightly weighted Madgewick runner Warbond,a horse who impressed over course and distance on his latest start.
Early market moves indicate that Icelandic is the one to be with in the one mile maiden at 7.35. Trained by Mark Johnston a stable that has a fine 75% record with it’s three year old maidens here at Kempton Park. Respect also in this race for Strawberrymystique ,the only mount on the card for leading rider Adam Kirby.
Former Swedish champion trainer Hans Adielsson has made a good start to his new career in the UK and has chances of notching up win number six at Kempton courtesy of his improving handicapper Striding Edge in the twelve furlong handicap at 8.05. Aspiring young rider Nicole Nordbald takes the mount tonight and my all weather mole tells me she is well worth her seven pound claim.Any market moves in the direction of the seven horse Sumani could be significant as it is the only mount on the card for leading lady rider Hayley Turner.
Racing closes with the fillies handicap at 8.35 a race where former Irish trainer Daniel Mark Loughnane has a chance with his recent Lingfield winner Source Of Light . Clodhopper looks the danger having already won twice here at Kempton Park and significantly she is the only mount on the card for leading track rider Jim Crowley.
