4:40 Kempton Racing Tips (24th January)

Kempton racecourse
JUSTICE ROCK 1-34 on the aw tracks, plus slow times (Lay 15/2)
MONARCH MAID poor recent form and 1-40 jockey record (Lay 10/1)
RAPID RISE slow times plus a 20 runner maiden (Lay 9/1)
STORM LIGHTNING may prefer shorter, jockey 0-9, maybe wrong surface but 2nd top rated
ONLY TEN PER CENT single figure win percentages for both trainer and jockey
WHALEWEIGH STATION possible front runner + top rated in 2017
WEDGEWOOD ESTATES slow times here but well drawn if capable
DALNESS EXPRESS maybe wants further and jockey 0-17 (Lay 3/1)
INDUS VALLEY slowish times plus poorish trainer/jockey stats (lay 12/1)
DIVINE CALL top rated on 2016 time but no recent c/d runs, trainer 16% win rate here
TWISTSANDTURNS may need this run and trainer is 0-17 here
HEAD SPACE has done a reasonable time to make frame, trainer is 0-36 here
SUMMARY: This is a poor class 7 race with 12 entrants, I'm going with 2 each way selections, WHALEWEIGH STATION 25/1 who even from stall 11 could lead in this race and DIVINE CALL 20/1 who from stall 10 could follow it across to the rails and then stay on the stronger, I've written it as both could win as its what i think could or might happen and I'm going with covering both angles but stakes wont be at full tilt in this class of race but at the prices available i cant let them go unbacked.

Whaleweigh Station 25/1 5th
Divine Call 20/1 3rd
