A nine runner race with two known front runners, Razin Hell drawn in stall five and is only my sixth top rated and Borough Boy drawn in stall two and only fifth top, so it looks like they will set the race up for a closer. I've got Fujin marked down as third top despite maybe needing a longer trip, second top is SPEIGHTOWNS KID 22/1 who won for me at 25/1 recently which shows it is in form but did run poorly last time out at this course but over seven furlongs and is quickly dropped back in distance, top rated is VIVA VERGLAS 12/1 (adv) who is a hold up type and drawn in stall one so can hopefully get the position on the rails about a length behind the leader and then stay the stronger as I've marked this horse down as either a bit of a hidden danger at this distance or it finds the trip a bit too far, with a most likely slightly slower pace set my the front runners it then wont have its stamina stretched and can use its sprint finish to effect but it hasn't been in the best of form lately so I'm going with backing both each way to show a profit whichever one does the business. There is a sprint at Kempton 4.55 and its a class seven affair and to be honest it is one of the poorest I've seen even at this lowly level and I've looked as hard as I could but still couldn't find anything of note so I'm leaving the race well alone.
