CLASSIC STAR, rather unlucky last time out at Chelmsford when getting no sort of run whatsoever, could bounce back today at Kempton in the 10-runner 7f handicap at 8pm.
Luke Bacon had to sit and suffer when the gaps just did not appear but the horse still finished fifth, beaten just two lengths. Today, again he faces True Belief who finished ahead of him and strictly speaking at the weights, is entitled to do so again. However, if today’s rider, 5lb claimer, Sophie Ralston can get a clear passage, Classic Star has a great each-way chance and he’s generally a 7/2 chance.
Apart from the favourite, True Belief, Phoenix Star looks a major threat and has been well supported in the market.
