7:05 Kempton (5th August)

A restricted auction race for colts and fillies over 7f on this turning track where a high draw is advantageous.

Astonishment has been knocking on the door and deserves to win a race. He ran a great race at Yarmouth only beaten by a talented juvenile in Syrian, which was unfortunate to find one that good at this grade. Kirk's juvenile is consistent and the form has been boosted by the third going in since. With a high draw this colt has every chance of breaking his maiden although at these limited odds you always feel you are there to be shot at.

A good opportunity for Astonishment to win.

A watching race.

Race review: 'A win for Astonishment who certainly deserved this victory after a couple of decent runs. Both Sea Dubai and Edgewater both set a fair level for this grade and should pick up a race soon.'
