Three at Kempton Park Racecourse
Three at Kempton Park Racecourse today.
2.10 - Locker Room Talk won a maiden at Huntingdon in nice style two outings ago over today’s 2m, before trying a higher grade on his handicap bow at Aintree from a mark of 130, going well before weakening three out. Back to a class 4 novice event here, he’s open to improvement and looks to have a good chance of going close or better in this easier grade. Jack Savage rides, takes off 7lbs, which will also be a help.
3.15 - Ballyart has had 6 outings under rules, starting off with promise including a good second in a Chepstow novice hurdle. Has finished mid division in three races since going handicapping, and is down to 110 today having started in 117. Went over 3m last time and back 3f on good should suit. Meets just three rivals here, needs to find a little more, but capable from this mark. Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
3.45 - Panic And Run has joined us from the Henry Daly yard where he ran well in his last three handicap races to be fairly close up. Starting on a mark of 106 and around the 2m 4f trip, he’s down to 102 today and goes over 2m 5f. Looks a capable type with more to come and has solid each way chances here. Richie McLernon takes the ride.
