Downtown Mombasa the standout bet at Kempton

Downtown Mombasa looks on a decent mark and worth a punt at 5/1 in the 9.00 at Kempton today now stepped up in trip.

Eve Johnson Houghton’s filly is yet to win in nine starts but did run well in a class 5 at Windsor back in May when a 3 3/4 length fifth of 13 to Gossip Column over 1m off a mark of 68.

After being slowly away, the three-year-old stayed on well to be nearest at the finish. Gossip Column, whom she met on level weights, has gone on to win three times since to be rated 91.

The third home Carlini won next time up off 63 and the fourth home Port Of Call has won twice since – the latter success coming off 69.

That gives the form a rock solid look in relation to this lower grade class 6 affair and Downtown Mombasa is able to race in it off 11lb lower.

It makes her potentially very well treated off a career-low rating of just 57 and she ran well off it last time out when dwelling at the start before keeping on to finish third over 1m 2f at Lingfield.

The extra two furlongs of this looks sure to suit and if building on that Downtown Mombasa has every chance of opening her accpunt in this line-up.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Downtown Mombasa (5/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
