TRIP AND COURSE DOUBTS FOR STABLE RUNNERS

Adam Kirby – rides Fighting Temeraire

FIGHTING TEMERAIRE and LUCYMAI are both well handicapped but there are nagging doubts about their chances at Kempton today.

The former is in a 6f handicap at 2.20pm and although he has won over the trip, it was a long while ago and most of his success has been over 7f.  He does have each-way claims under Adam Kirby who won on him two starts ago and he does have each-way claims at around 6/1.  Ginger Fox looks a major threat.

Lucymai has her “right” trip of 7f at 3.20pm but the doubt about her is the course and to an extent her recent form.  At her best, she would be a “good thing” but her favourite course is Chelmsford.  If putting her best foot forward, 8/1 would look a generous each-way price and she is certainly not without hope.  Joey Haynes rides the daughter of Multiplex who has probably most to fear from Lady Of Aran and Starlight Romance.
