8:45 Kempton Winning Racing Tips (6th July) 32RED CASINO HANDICAP (CLASS 4) (3yo+ 0-80)

A nice looking class four race with eleven entrants and four that have been known to lead before, Under Siege from stall ten is my fourth top rated and a possible leader and I think it might be capable of improving on that time but the draw doesn't help its cause in this race with three other front-runners on its inside, third top is also a possible front-runner and has the best draw in stall three so ought to be able to get control of the rails which is always a bonus, Dominium is my second top rated and could be the one to prosper if they go too fast in the early stages of the race but my top rated, DESERT STRIKE 9/1 is another front-running type and normal stall nine would be a bit of a negative but this one is capable of either leading or it should at least be capable of getting upsides or tucked in just behind the leaders from which to attack late on but if it does get to the front on its own it is then more than able to set the right pace from which to leave something in reserve for the finish, its recent form has been fairly consistent and even its last run when sixth reads a bit better than the bare result and has a chance here to get back to winning ways.
