Following a cracking jumps card on Monday, flat racing returns to Kempton with seven races on offer for punters to sink their teeth into.

The action gets underway with a 5f Fillies’ Restricted Novice Stakes at 5:30 and concludes at 8:30 with a two-mile handicap.

The team have taken a look through the card, picking out their three best bets for the meeting at the Sunbury-on-Thames course.

Here are their selections for Wednesday’s racing at Kempton.

NAP: FOLLOW YOUR HEART – 7:00 Kempton (5/1 – bet365)

A consistent runner from Mark Loughnane’s yard, Follow Your Heart could be one to note in the 7f handicap.

The four-year-old has run fairly straightforward over this trip, finishing in the top four in his last five starts over seven furlongs.

The gelding is only 2lbs above his last winning mark and he should benefit from a strong ride from Silvestre De Sousa.

He’s been given a handy draw here, so it could well be all in place for Follow Your Heart here.

NB: MOONDIAL – 5:30 Kempton (8/1 – bet365)

A newcomer from Daniel & Claire Kubler’s yard, Moondial could put up a big effort on her rules debut.

The two-year-old is bred to tackle the shorter trips, with her dam striking over this distance as well as being related to two Group winners and a Listed winner as well.

The filly has been given a nice draw on her first start and her trainers have a fair record with two-year-olds on the all-weather tracks.

Moondial hints at some value here and could well run well on her debut here.

LONGSHOT: SMARDEN FLYER – 6:30 Kempton (25/1 – Betfair + PP)

A big-priced outsider from John Best & Karen Jewell’s yard, Smarden Flyer could well be an undetected threat in the 7f handicap.

The gelding showed some potential on his latest start at Wolverhampton, finishing third of 12 runners over a mile at Wolverhampton.

The three-year-old should prove better over a shorter trip and he looks at a handy mark.

At the price of 25/1, Smarden Flyer could push into the places here.
