I am not having a bet on grass with there being inspection’s at Leicester and Catterick planned before racing can go ahead.  Tommy Silver my selection yesterday was unsuited by the heavy overnight rain, sometimes at this time of year it has to be expected, I was led to believe that the ground at Kempton was not that bad early morning.  If anyone saw the Paul Nichols interview ( ITV racing) before the race, he did sound more positive about the winner handling the soft ground better than stablemate Tommy Silver.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Chingachgook

Time: 1:15 Lingfield

Current Odds: 5/1 ew

This horse ran well when 3rd at Wolverhampton recently.  He was behind a couple of fairly useful sorts that day, and is worth a bet each way in this race.  He has a decent draw and the jockey rides a lot for the trainer, and rode this colt on debut, when given a nice gentle introduction .  With some improvement expected for his run, he can be right in the mix of this race. Of his rivals , Zalshah has had plenty of runs, he won a nursery last time and has a penalty for that win, now dropped back into a novice race, he is dangerous. As is Ode To Autumn, who has decent form on turf, he didn’t look totally genuine when finishing 2nd on his second start, and had another run after that when he took a step backwards, he has been gelded since, and that operation could well see an improved run from him, as he definitely has talent.
