For Sundays main bet we go to Kempton for 1 mile classified claiming stakes at 2.20.
2.20 KEMPTON 1 MILE CLASSIFIED CLAIMING STAKES 0-70:
8 runners declared for 0-70 claimer on poly track at Kempton .This looks competitive looking 0-70 classified claimer, with the four main contenders.Exclusive Waters, Larghetto ,Divine Rule, Mahadee
EXCLUSIVE WATERS :Won two 10 furlong handicaps on poly track for William Knight,been thereabouts on first two starts in claiming company for Gary Moore, without threatening to win .Not badly treated at weights ,though seems better suited too 10 furlongs .
DIVINE RULE :C&D winner at Kempton winning 0-60 handicap last March off mark 56,made good return after six month break last time, finishing third over C&D in 1 mile handicap.Strictly has bit to find at these weights ,though often goes well here at Kempton .
MAHADEE : Useful sort in the past winning 12 races ,including six on poly track .Nowhere near that level these days ,though bolted up by 7 lenghs in 1 mile handicap at Salisbury in August off mark 66 .Returned to form last time finishing second in claimer behind Gabrial The Boss over C&D .
LARGHETTO : Returned to form in November finishing second in 7 furlong handicap at Lingfield,followed that winning handicap over C&D in December of mark 59 ,slightly disappointing last time when finishing 6th of 12 in 7 furlong handicap at Lingfield ,though will suited returning to this longer trip .
VERDICT : Mahadee is 3LB clear on official ratings ,and finished fair second last time in this grade over C&D ,though is very inconsistent these days and was previously well beaten in selling company .
At the prices LARGHETTO looks the each-way value here, having won handicap over C&D in December.Looked unsuited by drop back in trip last time ,though was only beaten 3 lenghs .Should go well dropping into claiming company for first time and returning to his optimum trip .
Of the others Exclusive Waters looks the main danger, having won two 10 furlong handicaps,though looks short enough in market at around 5-2 .Also the drop back too 1 mile may not suit .
