20:50 Kempton

The penultimate race on the card at tonight’s evening meeting from Kempton sees our NAP Strange Society aim to keep his positive all weather record intact. A win and two placed efforts from three starts on an artificial surface is decent and a very encouraging 7th in the Silver Bowl at Haydock should stand the progressive three year old in good stead. The Hugo Palmer trained youngster is very lightly raced and open to bags of improvement. With a return to the all weather likely to suit as well as the addition of James Doyle in the saddle expect a bold showing.

This evening could finally be the time that Faadhel gets himself into the winners enclosure and coming from a top yard he demands respect however I feel tonight’s level of opposition may be a tad too good.

More seasoned handicappers such as Pastime, Pinnata and Bouclier have enough in their lockers to be well and truly in the thick of things come the finishing line and are certainly worth keeping an eye on.
