8/1 Authority a Good bet at Kempton

Good Authority is on a handy mark in the 7.40 at Kempton this evening and rates a solid each-way bet at 8/1.

Karen George’s charge was successful twice last year, including over course and distance, and showed even better form earlier this year in better grade contests.

The six-year-old ran a cracker to finish a 3/4 length third of 18 to Rockalong at Ascot and backed that up with a fine second of 14 to Magic City in a competitive contest at Goodwood off a mark of 83 where he produced a strong run having been given plenty to do before going down by just a length.

He then gained reward for those two efforts when overcoming trouble in running to beat Bravo Echo in a 10-runner apprentice handicap at Goodwood where he scored by 1/2 a length off a mark of 85.

Although he was then not at his best in his last two starts off 88, he didn’t shape to badly when last seen in action and finishing 7th of 16 to Magic City at Goodwood and now gets into this off just 82.

That is 3lb lower than when last successful and gives him a massive shout at the weights based on the pick of his form.

He has also been given a break to freshen him up and has run well in the past after returning from an absence so fitness is unlikely to be an issue.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts each-way Good Authority (8/1 BetVictor, Ladbrokes – BOG)
