HEADLINE

LAND LEAGUE IS TOP OF THE TABLE AT KEMPTON

 

LAND LEAGUE (nap) rates the best and most consistent clocker in this seven-runner handicap chase, and races as though today's extra yardage could be right up his street.

Taking on same class rivals this afternoon, it will come as no surprise if the gelding ends his frustrating run of seconds and finishes with his head in front.

Best odds of 4-1 with William Hill (or bigger elsewhere) should be taken.

Kempton 2-15 Conditions Hurdle (Class 3) 16f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th

 Paseo  51  51  --  --  --  --  --

LTO Speed: Prefontaine 78 Paricolor 66 Paseo 51

Paricolor's absence puts PREFONTAINE even more clear on the clock for this nine-runner juvenile hurdle, and with conditions to suit today he is taken to upon his last time out second at Fontwell. Pencilled in odds of 5-1 must be seen as yet another positive.

 

Kempton 3-20 Novices Hurdle (Class 1) 16f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th

 Birds Of Prey  95  95  60  90  76  85  57

LTO Speed: Longhouse Sale 102 Cardigan Bay 100 Golden Taipan 95

CARDIGAN BAY (nb) stayed on gamely when scoring at Warwick last month, with the form of the race looking solid through the second horse home. Top on the clock with a figure of 110, the selection is entitled to take her chance in today's higher grade contest, even more so as track type and underfoot conditions are expected to suit. Best odds of 11-1 with William Hill at the time of writing are another reason to look to get involved.

 Shooting Spirit  57  57  --  --  --  --  --

LTO Speed: Johan Zoffani 77 Praise You 58 Shooting Spirit 57

JOHAN ZOFFANI has gone close on his two starts to date, with his last time out second at the Curragh translating into a list-dominant speed rating of 77. Runner-up over this track and trip on debut, and effective on good ground and softer, the selection has too many ticks in the important boxes to not be given another chance this afternoon.

 

Naas 4-00 Listed 12f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Simply Beautiful  102  101  102  --  67  --  75

 Terzetto  93  88  93  68  89  28  --

LTO Speed: Simply Beautiful 101 Loveisthehigherlaw 95 Snapraeceps 93

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL has been finding it hard to finish with her head in front of late, but  rates rock-solid on the clock, stays this sort of trip well enough, and is sure to appreciate today's one grade drop in class. My only concern is the prevailing soft ground, but give me her early tissue odds of 7-2 or bigger and I'll probably be a player in this race.

 

Sedgefield 4-40 Handicap Hurdle (Class 3) 20f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Snookered  93  93  88  47  65  83  --
 Solstice Star  90  (--)  8  (86)  --  90  36
 Nicely Indeed  85  27  22  --  56  85  78
 Glorious Lady  83  65  83  (--)  (--)  --  --

LTO Speed: Snookered 93 Valence D'Aumont 65 Glorious Lady 65

It's hard to look past SNOOKERED in this six-runner handicap hurdle, as he rates the best and most consistent clocker in the line up, and has won his last two races at this venue with plenty in hand. Taking on same class rivals today and effective on any ground, all looks set for the gelding to make it a hat-trick of straight victories.
