All-weather best bets from Kempton and Wolverhampton

All-weather expert Jack Haylett is back with his two best bets from Kempton and Wolverhampton on Monday, January 20

Fleeting Prince (2.50 Kempton)

Fleeting Prince is a very interesting runner here, having been absent since August. Clearly things have not gone fully to plan with him, having been highly tried but ultimately disappointing on two starts since shedding the maiden tag in impressive style mid-summer.
He resumes now for a very much in-form yard and the switch to the all-weather surface should pose him no concern as he looks to get his career back on track. If the handicapper is right then the selection should win this comfortably as he has 6lb in hand of his rivals, and while it may prove that he is not worthy of his mark (on bare form it looks a little excessive), I would certainly believe he has the most scope of anything amongst this field.
He faces relatively exposed rivals and I think there could just be a bit more to come form this son of No Nay Never, particularly on this new surface. Of the field it would be Amarillo Star that I see posing the most opposition, but it looks notable that Kieran Shoemark, who rode that one to victory on his last start, switches to my selection. At the prices I think a very strong case can be made for Fleeting Prince, and I’d hope he can take this en route to better things.

Toro Dorado (5.55 Wolverhampton)

The form of Toro Dorado’s recent victory is working out well, with the second home having won since, and the well-beaten fourth having found the places since also. It was notable how well the selection finished that day, so stepping back up in trip now should suit. I think the handicapper has taken a bit of a chance in raising him just one pound for that win, and this is a very winnable looking race.
My one real concern is that he is a hold-up type, and on paper there doesn’t look to be much pace on. That said he has a strong jockey booking in Luke Morris and I’d hope he can judge the timing of his challenge suitably. At 6/4 then, Toro Dorado is short enough for a handicapper, but he is obviously well weighted and with further progression looking likely he is the clear standout amongst this field.
