Alan Thomson, the former Racing Editor at the Daily Record, puts up two tips at Kempton. View selections below.
NOBLE SILK (2.55) can continue making giant strides by lifting an intriguing 1m 3f handicap on the William Hill-sponsored emergency card at Kempton. With British turf racing facing another white-out after Ascot fell victim to the wintry elements, the metropolitan all-weather card at Kempton should come to the rescue. Lucy Wadham has an improving sort in Noble Silk, with the grey son of Derby winner Sir Percy proving a model of consistency (321221 from six starts) and he arrived late on the scene at Kempton 12 days ago to reel in Wildomar. A 2lb rise isn’t prohibitive.
There was a deluge of cash for SEXTONS HOUSE (5.05) at the Sunbury track on Wednesday but Alan McCabe’s gelding was never put into the race with a chance after being steadied at the start. Sextons House made late headway into fourth behind easy winner Vitzau and William Carson will surely employ more aggressive tactics dropping down in trip from a nice draw.
