1>Thataboy has only recorded slow times over this distance and is better with the sixth furlong and can be held up or track the leaders.
2>Royal Aquisition is one of three possible front runners and comes out fourth on my figures and has a five pound claimer on board and could have each way claims.
3>Pensax Lad hasnt got any course and distance form and can be held up or track the leaders but I think it might be better on a slower surface.
4>Captain Whoosh hasnt run on the all weather before and has recorded a fast time on good to firm going at the distance so could be a hidden danger especially being a three year old.
5>Scoreline hasn't got any form over this course and distance but has performed well at Southwell on their slower surface so this surface may be too fast for it.
6>West Coast Dream is another possible leader and comes out third on my ratings enhancing the idea of it being a fast run race.
7>Profile Star has run poorly over this course and distance but can try to lead at times but even its best time from Lingfield wouldnt put it in my top five.
8>Pearl Noir usually tracks the leaders but only comes out fifth on my ratings so doubt it will catch all of the leaders.
9>Bilash looks to be the only true hold up horse in the race and it also happens to be the top rated horse so this race should be run to suit its style.
10>Black Dave can be either held up or can track the leaders but its best time has come over six furlongs so this trip may be too short but could possibly get a place if the front runners cut each others throats by going too fast early on.
11>Argent Touch hasn't shown much on this course before and it appears to want a slower surface to show its best.
12>Mr Mo Jo is another than could try to lead and is my second top rated so another to make me think it will be a fast run race.
SUMMARY: With all the early pace and three of those possible leaders being in my top four ratings it could be fast and furious leaving the race open to a fast finishing type and the only true fast finishing hold up type is BILASH 16/1 and if at the top of his game and gets a clear run it has to have every chance in the race so at the price has to be an each way bet.
3:50 Kempton - Eleven runners but only Strategic Force my sixth top rated known as a true front runner, Clockmaker has been known to lead before but over five furlongs and not six but this is a poor race for the grade and Clockmaker still comes out second best on my figures so could possibly try to lead here especially being drawn in stall one and if it does so will be very hard for nearly all of these to catch. Head Space is my fourth top rated and is usually held up and Light From Mars who can either be held up or track the leaders is my third top rated. My top rating goes to DRIVE ON 10/1 who is originally only one spot clear of Clockmaker but has a good five pound claiming apprentice on board to tip the balance even further in its favour and once again at the price has to be an each way bet.
Bilash 14/1 5th
Drive On 12/1 6th
