Kempton Park’s NAP: HAMISH | 3:05pm Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Floodlit Stakes (Listed) | Dom’s Pick
William Haggas’s Motivator gelding didn’t quite get home in the Long Distance Cup at Ascot last time out but won the September Stakes here prior to that, form that is working out well of which.
He was convincingly clear of Outbox that day and there’s no obvious reason why that form will be overturned despite the 2lb difference in the weights this time around, with John Leeper perhaps the most intriguing runner now in this sphere.
But the selection makes great appeal given that he is still very lightly raced this campaign and his course history should give him the edge here.

The recent Chelmsford second remains is only 4lb higher than when winning in Essex in September and has some solid form in the book this campaign.
She’s failed to finish outside the places in her last four starts so is ultra-consistent and looks set for another big run here under 5lb claimer, Rhys Clutterbuck.
Ed Walker’s Beloved has been dropped 1lb from her third at this course last month and despite remaining a maiden, looks off a winnable mark here.
