Thirteen runners in a class six race over the straight five-furlong course so the draw shouldn't matter too much. Four of them have been known to lead before but Sir Geoffrey isn't in my top seven and Sleepy Blue Ocean is the seventh top rated. Bapak Bangsawan has got a five-pound claimer on board and this moves it from fifth to third place on my figures, which leaves me to my joint top ratings: Shawkantango, usually likes to track the pace and could prosper if they go too fast in front and burn each other out, but I'm going with RAMBO WILL 9/1 to either lead or challenge for the lead all the way and if it gets to the front could show enough to repel all challengers.
3:30 Southwell - Only ten runners in a class five race but in my opinion it's a weak race for the class and won't take much winning. Razin Hell is a three-year-old and is the only known front runner in the field so could be a danger with a clear run, It needs to improve a lot on times to figure. Amosite is my third top rated and Abi Scarlet second top - both of them like to track the leaders. Top rated is SPEIGHTOWNS KID 11/2 who only ran seven days ago but in that time he's changed stable. this horse ran well when second the last twice but maybe the change of scenery will change its luck.
3:20 Kempton - Nine runners over five-furlongs in a class four race with only Fair Value known to lead a race before but its times don't put it in my top three. Triple Dream would be top on a figure it recorded in 2012 and it ran to a time within a length of that in January 2013 but recently its times haven't been up to that standard. As a nine-year-old I doubt it will recapture its past form. I'm now left with joint top rated horses in Secret Millionaire, who can be held up or track the leaders, it hasn't run since September and I'm not convinced it can win after a break so the selection is SALVATORE FURY 5/2 who can also either be held up or track the leaders. If Fair Value tries to lead from stall seven and head for the rails there could be some congestion nearer the rails so I'm hoping that the selection from stall five can let Fair Value go across it and then follow it through and come home the strongest.
Rambo Will 9/1 Unp
Speightowns Kid 8/1 4th
Salvatore Fury 5/2 4th
