Tom Segal with three bankers in Kempton Placepot perm
There isn't much form to go on in Kempton's Racing TV Juvenile Hurdle (1.15) but the Paul Nicholls team is in great form and Viroflay showed more than enough in France to suggest he can win plenty of races over hurdles.
The Racing TV Novices' Handicap Chase (1.45) will probably be the hardest race to get through but Fairway Freddy comes from a stable in form and Rock On Rocco looks the type to improve markedly for fences.
Similarly For Pleasure has been in tremendous form and his free-flowing, slick jumping style will be ideally suited by Kempton in the Racing TV Novices' Hurdle (2.22).
Verdana Blue is one of the best in Britain and if she is anywhere near her best she is going to win the Racing TV Hurdle (3.32) again.
The conditions of the race suit her, she loves the track and comes into the race having shown a high-class level of form on the Flat in recent months. Basically, she should win bar a fall and rates a banker for Placepot purposes.
Poker School might improve for a step to three miles in the Racing TV Handicap Chase (4.07). Throw in the bottomweight Top Decision as well. He will like the ground and was impressive at Doncaster on his last start.
