Will it be an evening of winners at Kempton Park?

Tuck into the 7/1 about Tamara Bay

Tamara Bay makes her handicap debut in the 5.50 at Kempton and is of major interest at 7/1.

William Haggis’ filly shaped with promise in two Newmarket maidens over a mile before really catching the eye at this track last time out.

Like her two races at headquarters she was slowly away before making good late headway under hands and heels to finish a never nearer fifth of 12 to Port Hollow.

Although beaten just over 10 lengths she ran far better than her finishing position suggests, and finished 1 1/2 lengths in front of Ganas who has since gone on to land a Doncaster maiden by six lengths.

There is no doubt in my mind that she has been crying out for s step up in trip from a mile to today’s 1m 2f, and it’s interesting that connections have gone down that route on her first appearance in a handicap.

She looks potentially very well treated off an opening mark of 60, and another plus is that her trainer has a near 20% strike rate at the track.

The daughter of Selkirk is totally unexposed and open to bags of improvement, and everything looks in place for a huge run this evening.

Recommended bet: 3pts each-way Tamara Bay (7/1 Stan James)
11/2 Tommy Tiger can roar to success

Tommy Tiger looks to have been found a great opportunity to open his account in the 8.50 at Kempton, and makes plenty of appeal at 11/2.

Stuart Williams’ gelding has been on my radar all season as the type that will land a gamble, and has shown enough promise in four starts to suggest that he can take this low grade affair.

His best run came when third to Cotton Grass at Yarmouth 3 starts ago off a mark of 53, where he travelled well at the head of affairs before finding himself short of room as the pace quickened two from home.

His rider had to extract him out of a pocket to deliver his challenge, and he kept on well to be beaten four lengths without ever threatening to land a blow.

It’s true that in his last two starts he has been beaten a long way, but he is now down to a career low mark of 49 and this is a poor race.

It’s also interesting that connections are fitting him with blinkers for the first time, and if the application of the headgear works the oracle there is no doubt in my mind that he has the ability to win this.

Recommended bet: 3pts win Tommy Tiger (11/2 Boylesports – BOG)
