Kempton (flat, aw) – 4.40 – 8.10pm (8 races)
TUESDAY 5 NOVEMBER NAP SELECTION
(2.30) YOUNG TIGER (3/1, William Hill) is on for a hat-trick of wins, and the Captain Gerrard gelding can land his three-timer here.
Tom Tate’s charge started off his sequence at Newcastle at the beginning of last month before adding to his tally over course and distance latest with a defeat of Arzaak, scoring by two lengths despite a slow start.
He has a 5lbs rise in the weights to contend with here, but he likely could have more to come on this surface and he is perhaps worth chancing to defy his higher mark to strike again.
(3.00) ASTROZONE (4/1, Coral) has improved for his debut at Beverley back in August to find the frame in both subsequent outings, and the Fast Company filly can get off the mark now switching to a handicap.
Bryan Smart’s charge was beaten only a half-length into the runner-up berth at Catterick in August on his second outing, and he then bagged a bronze medal back at Beverley latest when beaten just over two lengths behind Magical Journey.
Now tried in the handicap ranks, she could be fairly well-treated off a mark of just 66 for this latest outing, and every chance she can make her presence felt if handling this surface.
1.00 – Thunderoad
1.30 – Goobinator
2.00 – Wild Flower
2.30 – Young Tiger
3.00 – Astrozone
3.30 – Millicent Fawcett
4.05 – Mamdood
(1.40) KISSESFORKATIE (6/1, Bet365) struck in a Fontwell bumper last October and the Jeremy mare could be worth chancing to get off the mark over hurdles at the third attempt.
Jeremy Scott’s charge showed decent form in bumpers following his win, contesting in Listed and Grade Two company, and finishing sixth behind The Glancing Queen on the latter occasion before switching to hurdling where he found only one too good.
Back from a break at Chepstow last month, he might have needed the run when finishing eight lengths’ third behind Silver Forever, and likely to come on for that outing then he could open his hurdles account now.
(2.40) BOYHOOD (3/1, Paddy Power) is given another chance to build on the promise he had shown on his chase debut when beating Truckers Lodge, and Tom George’s charge shouldn’t be judged too harsly on his last outing at Cheltenham where he was halted by a bad mistake and never recovered.
The Oscar gelding faces a slightly easier task here, while the application of first-time blinkers might help to sharpen him up and he can do better than was the case at Cheltenham latest behind Mulchahy’s Hill.
The form of his earlier success on debut has been boosted, and he could be worth forgiving that last effort.
1.10 – Welsh Saint
1.40 – Kissesforkatie
2.10 – Charbel
2.40 – Boyhood
3.10 – Dino’s Benefit
3.40 – Guardia Top
4.15 – Sandy Boy
(5.10) Sir Michael Stoute’s FIRST RECIEVER (7/4, Bet365) wouldn’t be the first to come on for his debut run, and the New Approach colt can build on his debut third at Newmarket back in July where he was beaten just over one length.
The form of that race is working out well with the runner-up winning next time out before making the frame in Group Three company; while the fourth has also struck since along with some others from the contest.
He’s been absent since that first outing which is a slight concern, but if he steps forward as expected from that first run then every chance he can get off the mark at the second attempt.
(6.40) EXCELLENT GEORGE (4/1, William Hill) has hit the crossbar on each of his last three outings, but Stuart Williams’ charge could be worth chancing to end his unfortunate run here.
The Exceed and Excel gelding has been beaten one length or less in each of those outings which includes on the Chelmsford polytrack latest where he found only With Caution too strong, and he could be capable of going one place better here despite a further 1lb rise in the weights.
He ought to remain competitive, and he was arguably unlucky last time having been denied a clear run. But with a bit more good fortune this time around it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get in the mix here.
4.40 – Pearl Jam
5.10 – First Receiver
5.40 – Prairie Moppins
6.10 – Oasis Song
6.40 – Excellent George
7.10 – Busby
7.40 – Vibrance
8.10 – Long Call
