Twiston-Davies Kempton Park Jumpers Bumper
Six runners go to Kempton Park Racecourse for another “Jumpers Bumper” card today.
12.35 Open National Hunt Flat Race
- Blended Stealth - Has had just the one outing in a turf bumper at Newcastle showing inexperience and finishing down the field. Has come on for the run and expected to show more today. As a 4yo gets at least 8lbs from all his rivals, Sam Twiston-Davies rides.
- Let It Loose - Made his debut at Cheltenham in a class 1 bumper in mid-November, but couldn’t get in to contention, finishing last of seven. That was a listed event and should find this somewhat easier, so hopeful that he’s come on for the run and improvement expected. Tom Bellamy in the saddle.
1.05 - Ballybough Mary - Has had a couple of runs in mares bumpers, both at Hereford, finishing second in December then fulfilling that promising run with a win in January. This looks a good opportunity and she’s expected to go very well. Sam in the saddle.
2.05 - Torn And Frayed - Went well over 2m 7f at Haydock last time to take second and drops back to 2m 2f here. Has occupied four runners up spots from his eight outings to date and hopeful of improving on that here. Sam aboard.
3.10 - Vienna Court - Unseated her rider two outings ago and then pulled up last time at Wetherby in mares chases, but previously had some good form in the book with a third at Bangor and wins in mares hurdles. Back to 2m here will suit and capable of going close. A good run expected, Sam rides.
3.40 - Topofthecotswolds - Won a novice hurdle at Uttoxeter in September over 2m 4f and then went well in both outings since over 2m 5f at Cheltenham in October and November with a 3rd and 5th. Has had a break since and comes back in good shape for this 2m 2f event. Another expected to go well with each way prospects. Sam aboard.
