Today’s horse racing preview comes from Nottingham and Kempton with one selection from each meeting.
14.30 Nottingham – Watch Racing Uk On Virgin 536 Handicap (5.1f) (0-75)
FANTASY KEEPER (78)
Michael Appleby’s three year old should be able to go one better this afternoon off the back of his good second over the extended 6f here at Nottingham last month. Being by Mayson he should relish any cut in the ground and would seriously expect a bold showing here.
Minigold has also been very consistent this year, the Beverley winner was unlucky when finishing third here over course and distance, off todays current mark of 75, has small room for further improvement at this level.
FANTASY KEEPER: 1pt each way @ SP (BOG)
19.25 Kempton – 32Red Handicap (0-90) (11.9f)
AL HAMDANY (83)
Fair Power (83)
Marco Botti’s three year old Al Hamdany would have to be taken seriously if bringing his second over 11f at the back end of September to Koeman. He had a rating of 89 that day and has been raised just the 1lb, John Egan will replace Adam Kirby who has been retained by Charlie Fellowes on the hotpot Hajaam.
Fair Power is one that could outrun his odds, Sylvester Kirks gelding hit a brace of wins in lesser company over the summer, has been running against some useful types over the past couple of runs and at 14/1 can be in the mix.
AL HAMDANY: 1pt each way @ SP (BOG)
