Lightly raced Autumn ready to go to war in Kempton handicap

1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Mark Of Approval(6.15 Kempton, nap)

He's been off for over a year through injury, but has been working nicely on the Al Bahathri of late and John Gosden's runner is fancied to defy a penalty to make all.

Others to follow:
Newmarket 1.50 Magic Illusion, 2.25 Daafr, 3.00 Choco Boy, 3.35 Prince Eiji, 4.10 Sheikhzayedroad, 4.45 Drill, 5.20 Honey Man, 5.55 Maori Bob
Pontefract 2.05 Open Sea, 2.40 Make A Wish, 4.25 Frontispiece, 5.00 The Great Story, 6.05 Trouble And Strife
Kempton 5.40 First Thought, 6.45 Stealth Fighter, 7.15 Buffalo River, 7.45 San Donato, 8.15 Envoy, 8.45 Elector

North: Richard Young

Dance King(4.25 Pontefract, nap)

Patchy form since his Musselburgh win in the summer, but on a decent mark and shaped with more encouragement at Haydock last time. He's won three of his five starts at Pontefract and is fancied to give a good account.

Others to follow
Newmarket 2.25 Rajinsky, 3.35 Arctic Sound, 4.45 Star Of The East, 5.20 Dream Today
Perth 2.15 One Night In Milan, 2.50 Jet Master, 3.25 Present Flight, 4.00 Chanceanotherfive, 4.35 Raise A Spark, 5.10 Shanroe Street, 5.45 Cockley Beck
Pontefract 2.05 Samlesbury, 2.40 Warning Fire, 3.15 Eesha's Smile, 3.50 Rolladice, 5.00 Desert Friend, 6.05 Correggio
Kempton 8.15 Luv U Whatever, 9.15 Lord Cooper

Lambourn: James Burn

Autumn War(8.45 Kempton, nap)

Charlie Hills, who has his string in decent nick, thinks plenty of this lightly-raced three-year-old and reckons his opening handicap mark of 88 is workable.

Others to follow
1.50 Bangkok, 2.25 Even Keel, 3.00 Crafty Madam, 3.35 Bye Bye Hong Kong, 4.10 Nearly Caught, 5.20 Greenside, 5.55 The Jean Genie
Pontefract 4.25 Dark Pearl, 5.00 Never Do Nothing
Kempton 5.40 Temujin, 6.15 Alfarqad, 7.45 Scottish Blade, 8.15 Giving Glances

West Country: Tim Mitchell

Soupy Soups(3.25 Perth, nap)

A 134-rated hurdler who has taken his time to get his act together over fences after a fall but came good last time. With his confidence restored, he will be expected to back that win up off his current mark.

Others to follow
Newmarket 2.25 Greeley, 4.45 Seafarer
Perth 5.10 Perfect Timing

Racing Post Ratings: Paul Curtis

Drill(4.45 Newmarket)

Finished well clear of the third when touched off at Newcastle last time and this lightly raced colt can progress again.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Greeley(2.25 Newmarket)

Has won his last three starts in the style of a rapidly improving youngster and, despite the attentions of the handicapper, the clock suggests he may still be ahead of his mark.

Longshot: Olly Eden

Crafty Madam(3.00 Newmarket)

Ran with credit when fourth on her return from a break last time out, staying on well after failing to settle. Clive Cox's filly is entitled to come on for the run and, given a decent pace to aim at, she can run well with William Buick booked.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Major Destination(4.50 Sligo)

The Noel Meade-trained seven-year-old has shown over hurdles and fences that stamina is his forte. During the summer he ran third in the Midlands National and in a long-distance hurdle at the Galway festival. He should account for his four rivals after a solid effort when third over hurdles at Navanlast Sunday.
