Tonight's racing: three interesting runners to note at Kempton

Marmelo: classy stayer is a half-brother to Jedhi
1 of 1

There are three meetings on a busy evening with Bellewstown, Worcester and Kempton all staging racing. Kempton's card is especially interesting and here are three runners to note.

Croque Monsieur
6.25 Kempton

The William Haggas-trained Croque Monsieur took a huge step forward on his handicap debut and first start since being gelded when successful at Chelmsford this month and an 11lb higher mark may not be enough to stop him following up.

A half-brother to Group 1 winner Sultanina, Croque Monsieur evidently started life in handicaps on a very fair mark and is likely to improve, bearing in mind his classy pedigree, unexposed profile and expert trainer.

18:25 Kempton (A.W)

7.25 Kempton

A half-sister to Group 2 winner Marmelo and Group 3 winner Vent De Force, Jedhi is bred to be decent, and she proved she is better than a mark of 70 with a fine second over course and distance on handicap debut last week.

The lightly raced Jedhi, who remains open to considerable improvement after just four starts, is due to race off a 5lb higher mark in future and can take full advantage here.

19:25 Kempton (A.W)

8.55 Kempton

Chloellie has a good record at Kempton – twice a winner from four starts – and she arrives in top form having posted a career-best when successful at Chelmsford last time. The three-year-old filly found plenty under pressure at Chelmsford, benefiting from the return to Polytrack, and can go well again from just a 3lb higher mark.

20:55 Kempton (A.W)
