Wednesday's Thoughts

5:20 Kempton
Most of this field look moderate. Fifth In Line has run well on all three starts and seems to appreciate 6f. Osbourne's filly looked the winner over course and distance and likely to make a bold bid from the front. Racing against a field of colts is no easy task but she is a determined sort and may take some pegging back if gaining a soft lead. Barnet Fair returns after a long absence when unseating his jockey at the stalls. This son of Iceman has enough ability to win a race but he can't afford such antics today and is likely to be outpaced before running on with some purpose late on. I would be tempted to bet on Guest's two-year-old in running as there is a chance of much bigger odds. Probably the most interesting horse is Mi Regalo trained by Andrew Balding. This gelding cost 55,000gns at the breeze-up sales and was backed to single figures on debut although showed little ability. This youngster was entered recently to run in a Stakes race, which adds to encouragement and their second time out runners - when fancied in the betting - have a healthy strike rate.

6:20 Kempton
A weak maiden. The fancied horses in the betting may be susceptible and it wouldn't be the biggest surprise to see an outsider go close. William Muir has done exceptionally well with his two-year-olds on the all-weather and especially so on their second start. Kristollini doesn't have the best of draws but one for the shortlist at a price and if backed would be another sign of encouragement. Twin Soul is progressing with racing and at generous odds could have place claims.
