This is the second division of this poor class six sprint, in division one there wasn't a horse that had done a recorded time in this race there's only two but better than none. There is a problem of where the early pace will come from but I've got Saxonette as my second top rated despite the fact I think this trip stretches its stamina and this stiff track wont help its cause but top spot goes to GOLD BEAU 11/2 who I have to admit hasn't shown much this year so far but in its defence it hasn't really had its ideal conditions this year, so if the going is good to firm as its quoted at the moment it will probably have its best chance of the year to get back into the winners enclosure and its best time from 2014 did come over this course and distance.
4:00 Leicester - A nice looking class three race with thirteen runners and four known front runners and with my third and top rated among the pace setters maybe not many horses will get involved much in the race, Lexington Place is actually joint third top rated but it should be prominent if not leading early on, second top rated is Newtons Law and usually I would mark this sort of horse down as a cover bet in case they went too fast up front and cut each others throat at the finish and a finishing type would pick them up inside the final furlong and maybe if this race was a class lower I would do but it might just be a bit outclassed here although it is a fast horse at its own level, top spot is NOBLE STORM 14/1 who ran a cracking race two runs ago at Sandown and its last run can be discounted as it was on softish ground, im hoping in this company it can get to the lead and then ought to be very very hard to catch and at least at the price make the frame for an each way bet.
4:40 Kempton - There are so many possible hidden dangers in the twelve runners any stakes will have to reflect that even though the horse im going with is one of those possible dangers, there are six horses that have led before which should suit my selection as well and of those that have done a time here they are my fourth and Peace Seeker my second top rated, the selection is SEEKING MAGIC 11/1, it has only had one run at Kempton and that was in 2013 where it did its best time and a repeat of that run would be good enough to win here but there are a few “if's” so stakes are going to be an each way bet with stakes on the small side.
Gold Beau 11/2 1st
Noble Storm 14/1 4th
Seeking Magic 11/1 1st
