image-left-align SamTurnerThe decision to step FOUR KINGDOMS (Kempton, 8.45) up in trip produced a decidedly positive effect at Yarmouth last week and the progressive three-year-old looks worth supporting returned to a synthetic surface this evening.

The selection could have been claimed for buttons having been beaten in a seller at Leicester on his penultimate start, but his purchase price will have risen significantly following his seaside romp which saw him spread-eagle a competitive, if limited field, by upwards of eight lengths.

A 12lb rise maybe enough to put off some suitors but a repeat of that performance and speed figure would be sufficient to see the northern raider follow up in a very winnable affair.

A stiff track seems to be a requirement for KENNY THE CAPTAIN (Newcastle, 4.10) to showcase some of his best form and the son of Captain Rio could be some value to regain the winning thread with conditions to suit.

The selection’s course stats on turf and the all-weather read 110321 and his cv also boasts a number of solid displays at Carlisle so the stiff climb to the line at today’s venue could be the catalyst to another prominent showing now he returns to six furlongs.

SUBHAAN (Newcastle, 3.40) ran all the way to the line over course and distance last month but narrowly failed to overhaul the Irish-trained Breeze who held on tenaciously.

Fourth-home Portledge has won since to boost the form and Roger Varian’s son of Dutch Art appeared well suited by the return to a mile and a synthetic track.
