Ransom ridden by Ryan Moore wins the Betway Maiden Stakes at Lingfield Racecourse.

After Bank Holiday Monday‘s jumping exploits, Kempton Park returns with an all-weather fixture on Wednesday evening.

The inner-track is the focus of attention in Sunbury-on-Thames as the flat season begins to hot up following the conclusion of the Guineas Festival at Newmarket last weekend.

Kempton’s Wednesday evening card gets underway at 5:10pm

The feature event of the night takes place at 7:10pm in the form of the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap, where the undefeated Ransom puts his two-race win-streak on the line for Sir Michael Stoute.

The Prince Khalid Abdullah representative won over course-and-distance last month with a hefty weight on his back under this claimer, Mark Crehan, and the son of Kingman is now entered into deeper waters here.

He tackles James Tate’s recent victor Sky Commander, who also holds previous winning course history, and was an easy winner at Chelmsford last time out.

Earlier in the card, a Surrey rematch sees last time out heroine Thunder Love bid for a two-timer over Archie Watson’s Stunt.

George Boughey’s daughter of Profitable carries a penalty after her easy win on debut here in March, with the Muhaarar filly hoping to take advantage of the 5lbs difference in weight, but improvement required after a disappointing effort at Windsor since.

And in the curtain closer, the Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Fillies’ Handicap at 8:10pm, a potentially competitive race concludes proceedings with Rae Guest’s Aramis Grey currently heading the betting.

She finished second at Wolverhampton last time out and faces challenges from Luke McJannet’s Miss Thoughtful and recent Bath successor Second Collection.
