1.55 Kempton – CLASSIC ANTHEM (1pt win – 13/2 generally)

Those ridden patiently and who challenged wide enjoyed an advantage in the bumper at Kempton’s meeting on February 25th, with 14-1 shot East India Express scoring by six and a half lengths for the Nicky Henderson yard. Jim Boyle’s CLASSIC ANTHEM raced up with the pace towards the inside rail where the ground looked slowest, doing well to finish 13 lengths back in fifth. The only other prominent racer to finish in front of him – Support Act – made all for an impressive 12-length win at Wetherby next time and Classic Anthem looks worth chancing on his hurdles debut for his in-form yard.

3.28 Beverley – WURKIN NINETOFIVE (1.5pt win – 11/1 generally)

The Iain Jardine-trained WURKIN NINETOFIVE caught the eye on her juvenile debut last August, doing best of those ridden patiently when a 16-1 fifth of eight in a 6f fillies’ restricted novice contest at Carlisle. She returned to that course and distance with another ‘notebook’ performance, staying on into a 28-1 fourth of ten after missing the break and again doing best of the closers. Up in trip for last month’s reappearance in a 7f novice contest on heavy ground at Catterick, the 25-1 shot raced freely on the outside of the field in the very early stages and was pushed up to lead just after a furlong. Switched to race on the better ground towards the nearside rail, she was headed by the pair who dominated the betting – Divine Libra (13-8) and Three Yorkshiremen (6-5 favourite) – but only just lost out on second place and was five lengths clear of the fourth. The daughter of Fast Company will appreciate today’s soft ground and is a likely improver on her handicap debut.

3.40 Kempton – FORGOT TO ASK (1pt E/W – 16/1 Bet365, 14/1 generally)

FORGOT TO ASK caught the eye in the 3m3.5f Grade 3 handicap chase at Cheltenham’s November meeting, staying on into a 17-length fifth when the race was all but over. He’d run a very similar race at Chepstow on his reappearance the time before, keeping on into a 21-length second and I’m happy to ignore his most recent effort – a pulled up at Ludlow in late November – as he’s always performed best in the spring, recording form figures in March, April or May of 131331111 (6-9) for a profit of £24.10 to a £1 level stake at SP. He’s 0-22 in other months. He’s priced up on his three previous runs this term, rather than his spring form, and he’s worth a bet.
