Three interesting horses to note on the all-weather at Kempton
All eyes will beon Kempton this evening with the Sunbury track hosting an eight-race card. The opener is at 5.45 and here are three horses to follow . . .
City Of Love
Saeed Bin Suroor and Oisin Murphy enjoyed Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere success with Royal Marine at Longchamp on Sunday and they team up with the conveniently named debutant City Of Love this evening.
The daughter of Exceed And Excel is half-sister to Listed winner Heartily and catches the eye in division one of the 6f novice stakes.
Brian Meehan’s Napanook has run well on all five starts, boasts the strongest form and is the one to beat.
Oisin Murphy took his record to three wins and two seconds from seven rides onStuart Williams’ Pactoluswhen scoring at Yarmouth last month and is back on board in the £30,000 optional claiming handicap over a mile.
The seven-year-old held on well to prevail by a head on the turf last time but is a course winner at Kempton so will have no problem with the return to Polytrack.
Mubtasim boasts some solid form this season and is a deserved market leader with the potential of more to come on his third all-weather start.
A Sure Welcome
If you are seeking a course specialist on this evening’s card, look no further than A Sure Welcome.
The four-year-old is unbeaten in two starts at Kempton and appears on a workable mark following promising efforts at Windsor and Wolverhampton.
Stall 11 could make life tricky for jockey Liam Keniry but expect A Sure Welcome to outrun his odds.
