Today’s selections feature a duo of runners on this evenings card at Kempton, along with entries at Southwell, Market Rasen and Wincanton.. Check out a quintet of market movers below, with all pricing coming from Unibet
All pricing correct at the time of publication
(1) (8:00pm Kempton) PHOENIX STAR was 7/2, now 9/4
Won at this venue over 6f back in November, when wearing a first time hood and has placed twice since over today’s 7f distance in five starts since. Arguably needs to show a little more, even with favourite status, but a bit of confidence in the market is worth noting.
(2) (4:35pm Southwell) SPEED DATING was 6/1, now 7/2
Won a course and distance nursery in November, beating today’s race rival Never Said Nothing as well. Indifferent performances since, sandwich a second again over C&D, but those were on alternative all-weather surface, so a return here is likely to suit. Can go close, but has a tough ask against favourite Light Lily.
(3) (5:20pm Wincanton) CHEF DEQUIPE was 9/2 now 7/2
Tends to prefer firmer ground as was shown when winning at Taunton a year ago and in subsequent places since then, including a second in a 2m 3f handicap in November, when missing out by a head to Azzerti. Looks capable of more and can be in the mix this afternoon.
(4) (1:56pm Market Rasen) HARD KNOCKS was 6/1, now 9/2
A record of 0-12 doesn’t bode well, however recent performances have shown this 10-y-o getting close, with a pair of second places at Wetherby in December and a fourth last time out at Carlisle. Has since undergone wind surgery which is likely to help, while a competitive mark gives them solid each-way claims over today’s 2m 5f.
(5) (6:30pm Kempton) ATLANTIC CROSSING was 14/1, now 11/1
Current Derby entrant has just the one run to his name, when finishing fifth at Windsor back in June.Elevates to a 1m 3f from the previous 6f trip, but has hopes of going well here, among a field with little or no form to speak of. Definite each-way chance at least, despite the price.
