Kicking It At Kempton


Mount McLeod looks magic at 3’s

Mount McLeod was a very unlucky loser when I put him up at huge odds last time out, and looks a solid bet at 3/1 to gain compensation and open his account in the 5.50 at Kempton.

Jamie Osbourne’s filly got no luck in running whatsoever when runner-up to Guava in a handicap at Nottingham and id well to be beaten just over a length.

After being slowly away, she made smooth headway to track the leaders before being squeezed out when coming to deliver her challenge at the furlong marker and after losing vital lengths produced a strong run to snatch second on the line.

There is little doubt in my mind that she would have won with plenty to spare granted a clear passage, and although the handicapper has put her up 2lb for that effort the daughter of Holy Roman Emperor is in effect a winner without a penalty and remains very well treated.

Her connections look to have found her a nice opening this evening to register her first success, and from a good draw in stall 1 she rates the best bet on the card.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Mount McLeod (3/1 generally available – BOG firms)


8/1 Ibiza Sunset ready to shine

Ibiza Sunset takes a drop in class in the 6.50 at Kempton and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 8/1.

Peter Winkworth’s gelding ran below par last time out at this track but there were excuses as he was badly drawn out wide.

Prior to that run he had posted two solid efforts when third in two handicaps which make him of serious interest in this lower grade.

One of those efforts came over tonight’s course and distance where he stayed on really well to finish a close up third to Point Du Jour and a repeat of that run would be good enough to take this.

In what looks a weak race he must go close, and at 8/1 looks a terrific each-way punt.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Ibiza Sunset (8/1 generally available – BOG)
