KEMPTON PARK | VALUE PICKS: Three horses to keep on side for Wednesday’s card

Our trio of selections can may be overpriced for Wednesday evening’s card at Kempton



Oisin Murphy - Royal Ascot - Kempton Park - Mark Johnston

With all-weather action taking centre stage for Wednesday evening‘s racing in Britain, we’ve taken a look through the card to highlight three horses who can run well at a value price in Sunbury-on-Thames.

Kempton hosts seven contests between 5:30pm and 8:30pm on Wednesday evening, respectively

Here’s our picks and how you can back them…

ASDAA | 5:30pm Unibet New Instant Roulette Apprentice Handicap (5/1)

Remaining without a win since February 2020, Mark Johnston’s gelding continues to tumble down the weights to a mark of 71. The mile trip on the all-weather surface could bring out a revival for the son of Dutch Art who has been given plenty of lenience from the handicapper after his Brighton bust last month. The Yorkshire yard is beginning to pick up a few winners, though, so perhaps he is worth siding with at the prices in this field for a stable that has celebrated more winners at this course than any other so far in 2021.

Mark Johnston has trained 8 winners to victory at Kempton this season, more than any other handler thus far
GREAT NEWS | 6:30pm Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap (17/2)

Godolphin are the winning-most ownership at the Surrey course so far this campaign and Sin bin Suroor’s grey gelding could be a tad overpriced for all that his Newmarket run reads as disappointing. However, he was carrying a penalty that day and gave 7lbs to the winner who was adjudged good enough to run in the French Derby on Sunday. Now gelded, he’s down in trip and duel flat champion jockey Oisin Murphy retains the partnership, with a opening handicap mark of 81 and stall 1 making him an attractive runner at the odds.

A two-time course-and-distance winner, Jonathan Portman’s charge is off the same mark as when landing glory here last July and Tyler Saunders claims 5lbs off his back. He didn’t fare too badly in a competitive field at Ascot given the position he was left in, but is sure to benefit for the switch back to this surface at a track where he always runs a race.
