Ed Walker: trainer is confident of a bold show from Ruscello at Kempton

Walker hopes Kempton return revives Ruscello

TRAINER Ed Walker is hoping a return to Kempton does the trick for Ruscello, who is on a recovery mission in the 1m4f handicap (8.50) after his flop on the turf at York last time.

Two of the four-year-old’s three wins on the all-weather have come at the track and he was third on his only other visit.

Walker said: “He ran very disappointingly at York last time and was flat after that. He is back to a track he likes under a jockey that knows him well [George Baker]. He should run well from a good draw.”

Godolphin's Ustura, who was third in the Duke of Edinburgh Handicap at Royal Ascot, heads the opposition in a competitive contest.

Today’s key stats

Since 2008, three-year-old runners trained by Ralph Beckett have finished 33202141812 in races at Chepstow, and backing them all would have resulted in a level-stake profit of £11 to £1 stakes. Hidden Belief goes in the maiden at 7.10, with Richard Hughes looking an interesting booking.

Jonjo O'Neill is 20-82 (24 per cent) with his handicap hurdlers at Worcester in the last five seasons (+£63.62 to £1 stakes). Wild West, who suffered interference over course and distance last month, bids to atone in the 2m4f event at 4.50.

Ralph Beckett and Jim Crowley are 22-76 when teaming up in Kempton maidens since the start of 2008, for a profit of £27.02 to £1 level stakes. Last Echo goes for the combination at 7.50.
