Five featured BetBright Races to look forward to tonight!
Another fantastic BetBright night at Kempton Park is upon us and judging by the expected turnout, the exiting array of horses on display and indeed the weather; it promises to be another cracker!
A plethora of BetBright Customers will be in attendance thanks to our ongoing free ticket promotion, so congrats to those who’ve availed of that offer.
Here’s our take on the horse racing betting at Kempton Park this evening:
5.40 – BetBright.com Maiden Stakes (5f)
Chevallier is bred to be smart and has solid claims on his second at Newmarket last month, but he spurned an ideal opening on the turf at Lingfield 3 weeks ago, and isn’t one to take short odds about on his polytrack debut.
You’re Cool isn’t discounted having shown promise under quite a tender ride at York, and hails from a yard with a better record on this surface, but preference is for the experienced Field Game, who has the advantage of being proven on artificial surfaces, and did little wrong when runner-up at Wolverhampton’s Tapeta earlier in the month.
That was a second creditable effort in succession, and he looks set to shed his maiden tag at the fourth attempt.
6.20 – BetBright.com Maiden Stakes (6f)
Koptoon and Chicago Bere set the standard on form, and ought to be capable of landing an ordinary maiden, but a couple of the newcomers make more appeal on breeding, namely Loudly and Midnight Dance.
The latter represents the Ralph Beckett operation which has an excellent record with juveniles here, saddling no less than 25 winners here in the last five seasons. The daughter of Danehill Dancer may enhance that reputation, but the eye is drawn slightly more to Loudly, who boasts an attractive US pedigree, and comes from a yard which excels with its runners on polytrack.
It’s been a largely forgettable summer for Jeremy Noseda, but while his runners haven’t fired on turf of late, his AW representatives have fared much better, and this $360,000 yearling won’t lack for know-how on her debut.
6.50 – BetBright Moneyback Offers Median Auction Maiden (1m)
This older horse maiden looks a fairly weak affair, and having failed to stay 1¼m last time behind the very promising Spacelab, Glorious Sun is confidently expected to make amends down in trip and class.
His wide draw might put some off, but he’s a forward-going type who should soon be at the head of affairs, and has an excellent judge of pace in the saddle in the shape of George Baker.
Quaintrelle is stepping up in trip, and has claims on her turf form, but both the surface and the extra yardage are serious concerns, as she doesn’t look short of speed.
Jethou Island improved from her debut here when mid-field at Windsor last time, and the way she kept on suggests she’ll improve further, so with her yard firing on all cylinders, she may represent a bigger threat, and appeals as a forecast mixer underneath the favourite.
8.20 – BetBright.com Handicap (1½m)
Double Discount kept on well from a poor position when third over 11f here on his most recent start, and the fitting of cheekpieces may be beneficial to his rider tonight. He’s certainly running well enough to suggest he can score off his current mark, and the defection of Saoi makes this look eminently winnable.
Soul Intent is a massive threat on his best form, but it’s notable that all three of his wins have come when partnered by George Baker, and he’d have made more appeal had the partnership not been broken up (it’s unclear why Baker isn’t riding, as he’s available, but that’s not our concern).
Cousin Khee is also capable, but he’s a strong stayer who won’t appreciate the likely crawl, and may find things happening too quickly as a result.
8.50 – BetBright “Live The Moment” Handicap (1m3f)
The most competitive race of the night, it appears, so perhaps Devilment is too short in the market, for all he caught the eye under a slightly over-aggressive ride at Wolverhampton last time. He has a couple of in-form rivals to contend with here in the shape of Carnevale and Ragged Robbin, but it’s Rydan who stands out from a value perspective.
Robert Mills’s gelding shaped best of all when fourth at Goodwood last month, and the trio who beat him have all won since. He again attracted support at Sandown next time, but found himself persistently short of space when trying to launch a challenge, and is much better than that result implies.
With the 11f here probably an easier test than at Goodwood, where his stamina was stretched, he may be something of a surprise package, and looks the evening’s best wager.
