March has been another very quiet month with very few blog posts over the last few weeks.With very few betting opportunities in the claiming races its just been waiting game.With the start of flat turf season only nine days away ,we should now start to see more betting opportunities over upcoming weeks .
Moving onto Thursdays racing we do have one claiming race at Kempton's evening fixture over 1 mile .
6.00 KEMPTON 1 MILE CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
Just six runners declared for 1 mile claimer on poly track at Kempton .The two main contenders look to be Red Somerset & April Fool
RED SOMERSET : In good form this winter winning his last three races in selling company.Won with bit to spare last time beating Dazzling Fortune by neck .Looks sure to go well in this claimer ,though this does look stronger race .
APRIL FOOL : Course specialist with five wins here at Kempton .Won 7F handicap here at Kempton back in January off mark 69 beating Katmai River by 3.5 lenghs .Has looked bit disappointing on his last three starts ,though has good record in claiming company and always dangerous if getting easy lead .
VERDICT : Red Somerset will be difficult to beat after landing a hatrick of selling wins ,though this does looks a bit stronger race and odds around evens look very short for horse beaten in his last two starts in claiming company .
APRIL FOOL needs to bounce back after couple disappointing runs ,though does know how to win in this grade having won four claimers in 2011 .Being the only confirmed front runner in the race ,could take some catching if he gets uncontested lead .Odds around 7-1 look very fair value in this small field .
