13:10 Wolverhampton

Resumption is by far the most experienced horse in this race but is still yet to be first past the winning post. That being said, he’s improved with every run and has hit the post twice. Moreover, he has form against Greek Flame. However, for all his experience, he might find himself exposed against some newcomers.

Famous Star is probably a worthy favourite. She’s won at this class and on this ground, plus she was second here over the same distance. She’s back down in trip and should be open to more improvement. Moreover, Jason Watson is in very good form, as are Simon and Ed Crisford. Additionally, they have a good record at Wolverhampton. I’d be surprised if he was beaten today.

She Got The Look is related to a few nice horses and gains weight off most of her rivals today. The only question mark I’d have is whether she might find the mile a slight bit too short. Joe Fanning and Mark Johnson are going well and seem to have taken their time with her, plus, they also have a good record at Wolverhampton. There’s been some support for her in the market and she could prove a bit of value against the favourite.


17:00 Kempton

Silverscape was a course and distance winner on his debut, straightening up nicely to win by a nose. He’s open to more improvement but he does have a penalty of four pounds. However, this seems a harder race and he might have to improve dramatically for today’s contest. Others seem more preferable.

Asean Legend has hit the post on both of his starts, at Haydock on the turf and subsequently at Wolverhampton. He was unlucky not to win at Haydock and was just outgunned in the last half a furlong at Wolverhampton. He’s the most experienced in the field but he’s dropping back to a mile, on a slower surface, which could go against him.

Khathak is a debutant runner for Charlie Appleby’s award winning stable and is a full brother to the multiple Group One scorer, Ribchester. He’s been gelded and had a wind operation, plus his tongue tied, so it looks like connections are taking every possible precaution with him. James Doyle is in decent form and takes the ride. Along with a nice draw, he has everything in his favour to make his debut a winning one.
