Form & Verdict

Always in rear over C&D last Wednesday; however, he could have done with a stronger gallop and was on a hat-trick after winning twice over C&D in the spring; no surprise if he bounces back with a big performance.

Whitcombe Rockstar

9st 2lb

J: Josephine Gordon

T: Keiran Burke

Profile is rather all-or-nothing but he's won twice, latterly an easy C&D win last month; 7lb rise to contend with but still has potential on AW and dangerous granted a well-run race.

Form & Verdict

Initially failed to progress after winning at Lingfield (1m, Polytrack) last April on his second start, but got back on track with handicap win at Salisbury (7f) last month; did well to score having been denied a clear run, and he's in the right hands to continue to improve; strong claims up 3lb.

Has run well in defeat over 7f on two of his last three starts; 1m may be within range but he could do with settling better than is often the case, and this seven-race maiden isn't straightforward (tends to hang).

Form & Verdict

His C&D win last August was the middle leg of a hat-trick; yet to finish better than fifth this year but when occupying that position over 1m2f two starts ago he wasn't beaten far after fading close home, and perhaps fast ground didn't suit last time out; could go well now back down in distance.

Clear runner-up at Leicester (1m) in May on second handicap start then went one better in Nottingham maiden (1m) three weeks ago; showed promise on Polytrack last year and he's in good hands to continue to progress; player.

Merely seventh on first two starts for this yard but he's had wind surgery since and this three-time C&D winner is dropping back down the weights; could get closer to the target this evening.

Tahitian Prince

9st 8lb

J: Neil Callan

T: George Baker

Three C&D wins to his name and he ended a two-year losing run when winning a six-runner 1m handicap at Chelmsford in September; 3lb rise manageable but not sure what to expect after eight months off on his stable debut (sold 20,000gns last October).

Inconsistent but returned to form with close fourth of seven at Nottingham three weeks ago and he won over C&D in February on his sole previous visit to Kempton; now 2lb below that last winning mark and not ruled out.

9st 7lb

J: Oisin Murphy

T: Andrew Balding

Can front-run; registered two wins and a second over 1m on good or good to firm last May-August, his highlights on turf last year; reappeared with AW win at Wolverhampton in February and although trying to overcome a wide draw in warm race there in March did not work out, that shouldn't attract much criticism; needs a career best but not dismissed.

10/1

Form: 4224-5 D

5 yo Gelding

OR: 79

Form & Verdict

He's on a handy mark on last season's consistent form (including on Tapeta; unproven on Polytrack), and he reappeared with a fair fifth at Newmarket in May; has produced his peak efforts in blinkers and they remain absent, but he's not discounted.

5 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

He's well treated on his 2022 AW form (at up to 1m3f) but lightly raced in the last two years and needs to raise his game to come out on top today; drops back in trip having tackled 1m2f on both outings this season.

5 yo Colt

Form & Verdict

His stable debut third in the Thirsk Hunt Cup in May was promising; well handicapped on that form but he's been beaten a long way on his last three runs; hopes are pinned on the first-time blinkers prompting a revival (won at Beverley last September when cheekpieces were first applied).

Bolted up at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) in March but struggled at Pontefract (1m4f, heavy) next time and it's been the same story back over hurdles on his last three starts, the latest on Sunday; has something to prove.

Kempton novice winner for Eve Johnson Houghton as 2yo; had three runs for Nigel Tinkler, failing to build on a good first one, and sold on for 7,500gns; new trainer fits a tongue-tie over today's new trip (unraced beyond 1m).
