Tonight's action: three runners who catch the eye at Kempton
Following afternoon action at York, Brighton, Carlisle and Killarney, two evening cards are headed by an all-weather meeting at Kempton where the seven-race card gets under way at5.45. Here are three to follow
Charlie Hills has long held his three-year-old, who was considered good enough to run in the Chesham, in high regard.The son of Mount Nelson finished a good fourth that day behind the classy September and although things have not quite gone to plan since, he can show the benefit of a small drop in the weights in a less competitive affair.
He caught the eye this month when fifthin atricky Glorious Goodwood handicap on his first start since being geldedand won well on his only other all-weather start, bolting up in a Wolverhampton novice by 13 lengths.
Piece Of History
The Godolphin coltrates an interesting handicap debutant off a mark of 90 this evening, having looked a useful prospect in winning his first two starts. He was able to defy a 7lb penalty last month by winning a shade cosily at Wolverhampton and connections will be hoping there is plenty more to come.
The experience gained on a synthetic surface should stand the son of Iffraaj, comfortably the most unexposed runner in the line-up, in good stead.An outside draw makes life tougher but if he were to win in good style this evening then handicaps would surely be a thing of the past.
Gerald Mosse is riding the crest of a wave and the veteran arrives at Kempton fresh off the back of a quickfire double at Windsor Monday night. He is booked to ride Exchequer for Richard Guest in the last race, and his mount has now slipped down 6lb after finishing down the field on his last two outings.
The Exceed And Excel gelding has undergone wind surgery since and could leave his recent form behind, with a nice draw on the inside aiding his cause.
