Race 1 (12:20pm) DIRHAM EMIRATI

Winner on second career start at Newcastle (1m 4f, a/w) back in March for David Simcock, when 2 lengths clear of Act Naturally back in March of last year. Had since stepped up into Class 4 level, placing third at Thirsk and a fourth in latest at Chelmsford back in August for KP De Foy. Now switches to hurdling for the strong Juvenile yard under Gary Moore’s tutelage and looks destined to be a big player here.


Race 2 (12:55pm) MILAN BRIDGE

Made a useful debut at Punchestown last March in a point contest, placing sixth of twelve and then returned to action at Lingfield (2m 3f, good to soft) in November for Paul Nicholls’ yard, taking the spoils by a length, ahead of Marble Sands, staying on strongly in the final furlong and keeping the second at bay, relatively comfortably. Looked to have needed the longer trip, which this contest will provide and looks to have decent claims for a double here.


Race 3 (1:32pm) FOXBORO

Made a UK debut second at Plumpton (2m 3f, soft), a year ago, in a novices chase, when just a head behind Twenty Twenty. Since returning this season, he has improved with each display, culminating in another second placed finish, last time out at Wincanton (2m 4f, good to soft) on Boxing Day, when half a length behind Native Robin. He takes the step back up in Class for this contest and can continue the consistency shown so far this season here. Has won twice over hurdles in France and could open his UK account.


Race 4 (2:05pm) MISTER FISHER

Just four runners take part in the big race of the weekend at Kempton, with Nicky Henderson’s Mister Fisher in prime position to take the victory here. The former Peterborough Chase winner, missed out in the Oaksey Chase back in April, when just a neck behind Frodon at Sandow and returned to action, with a disappointing run in the King George on Boxing Day. However, this looks a solid contest for him to bounce back in, with a return to form arguably being enough to take the spoils here.


Race 5 (2:40pm) CH’TIBELLO

Not won since the 2019 County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, but is always a keen contender for Dan Skelton, placing a total of eight times, alongside the three career wins. Has looked ready to show is worth this season, following a fifth of eleven at Newbury on his return, with a fourth of eight at Hereford (2m 3f, good) last month in a Class 2 contest. Has slid down the weights recently, but with Tristan Durrell’s 7lbs claims, he can feature in this twenty runner contest.


Race 6 (3:15pm) KITTY’S LIGHT

Four wins and six places in seventeen starts for Christian Williams and despite not winning since March of last year at Kelso, the gelding has featured strongly, placing second in starts at Chepstow and then in the Grade 2 - Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby, when 4.25 lengths behind Fusil Raffles. He placed fourth over C&D last time out and comes into this contest of a very useful mark. Genuine challenger for the win here, if continuing the strong form.
