Nap – Canford Bay 4.50 Newcastle
Previous CD winner Canford Bay looks to have solid claims to add another victory to his tally. He has posted some solid efforts recently including a 3rd place finish here and a victory at Wolverhampton, before last time finding the step up to class 2 company a bit too hot. This looks easier and with Harry Russell taking 7lb off today he should be able to be competitive once more.
Next Best – Regal Lilly 7.00 Kempton Park
This lightly raced Iffraaj filly gives the impression there is more to come over this type of trip. All 4 runs she has been doing her best work late including on handicap debut last time in a decent Class 2 event at Wolverhampton. This is significantly easier and the David Simcock yard is currently in red hot form with 4 winners from his last 11 runners. Callum Shepherd takes over in the saddle today and is 6 from 15 in the last year at Kempton with the yard’s runners.
Each Way –Treasure Dillon 5.10 Ludlow
Treasure Dillon looked a progressive novice hurdler last season but things have not really worked out for him after a promising reappearance run at Cheltenham back in October. He made an error at a crucial time next time back at the same venue before falling 3 out here in January, while his last run over an extended 3 mile on soft ground looked to put too much demand on his stamina. A drop back in trip looks the right move and this is a much easier race than the Cheltenham races he has not been beaten far in. Trainer Jockey combination of Ewan Williams/Adam Wedge continue in fine form with a 34% strike rate in the last 30 days.
