Kempton Park’s NAP: WINGS OF WAR | 2:05pm Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Sirenia Stakes (Group 3) | Dom’s Pick
A cracking renewal of the opening Group contest of the day can go to Clive Cox and Hector Crouch, who’s 2-year-old ran a blinder in a competitive contest at York’s Ebor Festival last time out.
His Newmarket form has worked out well, while the rival who beat him on debut at Leicester has won twice in the aftermath, so there’s a pleasing amount of form in the book ahead of his first all-weather appearance.
An opening mark of 96 must be contended with but he’s had a solid start to his career and boasts experience and consistency ahead of most of his rivals.
NB: STORM CATCHER | 3:15pm Unibet London Mile Series Final Handicap
Simon Pearce’s gelding is far from a straightforward type but the was clearly back in his element when running back to form here last time out following his debut success.
He perhaps threw the race away on that occasion but wears cheekpieces for the first time here which may work the oracle and he’s only been raised 1lb by the handicapper.
This is a tougher contest but he’s worth his place here given his record around Sunbury-on-Thames.
