ITV7 Selections for Wednesday’s Kempton Meeting
The popular free-to-play ITV7 competition provides players with the opportunity to win real cash prizes by identifying the winners of seven select races. This Wednesday’s competition centres around Kempton’s all-weather card, with £1,000 on offer for the winner. We have provided tips for all seven races below – which make up our advised ITV7.
KIRILENKO – Race 1 (3:15pm Kempton)
The opening ITV7 race can go the way of Sir Michael Stoute’s KIRILENKO, who is bred to be smart being the second foal out of Grade 3 winner Marenko.
She made a very taking debut when fifth at Newmarket last month, where she didn’t enjoy the clearest of runs and finished her race off to a fair rattle under Ryan Moore. Kirilenko is entitled to have learnt plenty from that initial experience, and it is worth noting that she is drawn far kinder here in stall 8 than some of her main market rivals.
TESTING FAITH – Race 2 (3:45pm Kempton)
Although a wide draw is admittedly far from ideal for TESTING FAITH, he brings by far the strongest piece of form into this courtesy of his debut Pontefract second, with the winner franking this by subsequently placing at Listed level.
Dougie Costello retains familiarities with Testing Faith today, and there simply doesn’t appear to be a great deal of strength in depth in this contest, with the unraced second fav representing the out of form Mark Johnston yard.
GREENSCAPE – Race 3 (4:15pm Kempton)
This can go to Ralph Beckett’s GREENSCAPE, who has a useful pedigree and shaped well on debut last month when staying on for fourth.
She should have learnt plenty from that, and this rates a slightly weaker contest, so in reality, she shouldn’t have to improve much to be up to taking this.
MOBADRA – Race 4 (4:45pm Kempton)
Roger Varian does well with his runners here at Kempton, and an already healthy strike rate can be enhanced here courtesy of MOBADRA.
This daughter of Oasis Dream had a couple of 86-rated rivals behind when scoring at Haydock in July, and she backed that run up when second at Newmarket in September.
The winner that day has since gone close in a higher grade, so the form reads well, and Mobadra remains open to improvement compared to most of these rivals. As such, a rating of 83 looks unlikely to prove beyond her.
MIGHTY GURKA – Race 5 (5:15pm Kempton)
MIGHTY GURKA is often seen contesting better races than this, with his last couple of runs coming in Listed company.
His all-weather form figures currently read an impressive 11212, his latest second coming to the now 109 rated Diligent Harry. That form suggests that Mighty Gurka could be well-treated here dropped into handicaps off a mark of 95.
RUMI – Race 6 (5:45pm Kempton)
It is difficult to oppose RUMI here, who stepped forward markedly on his three runs in novice company when dead-heating at this venue on handicap debut in September.
Roger Charlton’s charge got going late there, which suggests that the extra furlong on offer this afternoon will suit him, and a 2lb rise from the handicapper looks anything but excessive.
JULIE JOHNSTON – Race 7 (6:15pm Kempton)
This looks like a good opportunity for JULIE JOHNSTON, who has run well in defeat in both starts since joining these connections, staying on well for fifth here last month where she was subsequently reported to have been ‘outpaced early on’.
On that showing, stepping back up to 7f looks a big plus for her chances this afternoon, Hollie Doyle keeps the ride, and her current rating of 57 is 11lb below her last winning one.
