Our three value picks for Kempton’s all-weather card this Wednesday



Horse Racing - The digibet Best of British Night - Kempton Park Racecourse

All-weather action returns to Kempton Park on Wednesday evening as the Epsom Derby Festival nears ever closer with another double-Classic weekend on the horizon.

There is a bumper nine-race card to sink your teeth into in Sunbury-on-Thames in what is the first of four meeting’s at the track in June.

Who will throw down an early gauntlet at Kempton this Wednesday ahead of the main event at Epsom this weekend?

We’ve scanned through the contests and selected our three value picks of the night that may well be capable of outrunning their odds….

Take a read here.

Fight For It | 4:35pm Unibet Casino Deposit 10Get40 Bonus Novice Stakes

Suffolk duo Simon & Ed Crisford are operating at a nice 10% so far with plenty of contenders running nice races of late and perhaps their Camelot gelding will be no different.


He ran better than the result suggested on his Leicester debut, of which the form has worked out well, and was possibly unsuited by the soft conditions at Bath on his most recent start.

That said, he’s at a new trip here making his first start on the all-weather and David Egan is jocked up for the first time, so there is surely still plenty of room for improvement and he is nicely weighted given his experience.

St George’s Bay | 6:10pm Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Novice Stakes (Div 1)

Ed Walker’s shrewd yard are in fine fettle of late and interestingly this son of Cable Bay is their only runner on the card on Wednesday evening.

He was virtually tailed off on his Doncaster debut but that has proved to be quite a decent maiden and he ran with much more credit at Newbury next time out.

There are a few here with more potential but he has a nice draw and if continuing to go the right way, he could be capable of making the frame.

Clarendon Cross | 7:20pm Unibet New Instant Roulette Handicap

A tough one to weigh up, Richard Hannon has had six of his last 11 runners place and his New Approach colt is probably overpriced given the bare form he holds.

Can Richard Hannon land a Kempton success en route to Derby Festival victory later this week?

The step up to the mile trip at Goodwood didn’t pay dividends but that perhaps came too soon after a career-best at Newbury two weeks earlier.

He’s been given plenty of time to get over that quickfire reappearance and maybe a switch to the all-weather surface with 2lbs leeway from the handicapper can help his chances.
