RACE PREVIEW & TIPS (WEDNESDAY)

18:45 Kempton

Horse racing is back and oh how we all missed it! A fascinating contest in store here in what looks to be the pick of the evening racing with a number of in-form contenders taking their place here for this class 5 handicap contest over 1m. Robert Cowell sends the hat-trick seeking Sir Ox here in search of further glory after two smart victories from his last two starts. The latest win came over course and distance, but he now steps up in grade for today’s contest and may find one or two unexposed types in this company. James Bethell has Rich Approach in the form of his life as well with two wins and a third placed effort from his last three starts, but once again he may also bump into some unexposed rivals here today. David Simcock sends one such type in Annecy who enters handicap company for the first time. Jamie Spencer once again takes the ride this evening and he only just failed to deliver a stunning victory from off the pace on this mare last time out when he ran out of time to catch the winner in the closing stages. She looks the pick in this field and Spencer can take closer order this time and deliver her late for the win. The red-hot Joseph O’Brien yard send one over here for this one in the form of Vhagar, who was a beaten favourite last time out in Ireland, so he would rate the biggest danger to the selection.

ANNECY (WIN) – NAP
