THE STABLE sends outs five runners today, one at Lingfield this afternoon and four at Kempton this evening and none of them look to have obvious winning opportunities.
First off is Kadrizzi in the Lingfield 3.30, a 6f handicap and the most valuable race on the card with a near £12k prize for the winner. The 4yo son of Hurricane Cat has a good strike rate with four wins from 19 runs but he’s been off for 141 days and there’s no evidence he goes well fresh. He’d have an each-way chance at 10/1 but Kasbah has been in form over the winter and looks a more likely winner.
At Kempton, Artscape has his second run, when dropping down to 6f at 6.15pm, having been fourth over a mile on his debut. He’ll be doing well to win drawn 12 of 12 but this ex-Jim Bolger Iffraaj gelding has ability and has small each-way credentials. Hot favourite Al Sail and the well-backed newcomer, Hungarian Rhapsody, are the ones to beat.
Nezar makes his debut for the yard in the 6.45, a 6f handicap and he too, is nearly out in the car park, drawn 10 of 12. Weak, in the market at 20/1, he’s sure to come on for the run.
The interesting one of the Kempton quartet is Golden Amber in the 7.45, a 7f fillies’ handicap. It is true, she is also badly drawn (11 of 13) but she’s well handicapped and could outrun her 14/1 price. The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor may be worth an each-way look.
Robert Winston rides all the horses today except for Billy Boots in the 9.15 but he’s unlikely to miss a winner on this 40/1 shot, ridden by the very capable Lulu Standford.
