Three jump meetings on what will be a particularly cold Saturday afternoon. We are going to briefly look at three races from Kempton. They report their going as Good to Soft, but the covers set down on Thursday are still to come off. I will be getting a more accurate going report direct from one of my senior contacts later this morning. Whilst Kempton is a free draining track the covers can deaden the ground and that will be an important point when I get my own report.
Today’s Kempton card is one of the last meetings with trials for the Cheltenham Festival now just over a fortnight away.
1.50 2m4½f Betdaq Now 2% Commission Pendil Novices’ Chase (Grade 2) (Class 1) (5yo+)
Cyrname deserves to be at short odds. I have him in at 4/7 on my private tissue.
Excellent jumper and expected to be a player at the Spring festivals.
2.25 2m (Winter) Betdaq #ChangingForTheBettor Adonis Juvenile Hurdle (Grade 2) (Class 1) (4yo)
Redicean is at short odds after impressing in his two successes.
However his jumping needs to improve, the bare form of his wins isn’t solid.
I would want odds against before contemplating involvement. Currently around 4/5 in the early markets.
3.35 3m Betdaq Handicap Chase (Grade 3) (Class 1) (5yo+)
Wide open affair in which Master Dee is expected to go well.
This has been the target and conditions will suit.
Presently on offer at 7/1 with some 15/2 in places.
