There are two remaining scheduled meetings across the UK on Wednesday, with racing coming from Catterick and Kempton. 

We have three Wednesday fancies to follow, including a three-year-old handicapper representing Newmarket handler Michael Bell in the last at Kempton. 

Wednesday Racing Tips

  • 17:25 Kempton - Screaming Eagle @ 6/4
  • 19:00 Kempton - Caragio @ 4/1 
  • 20:30 Kempton - Cock And Bull @ 5/2

17:25 Kempton - Screaming Eagle @ 6/4

SCREAMING EAGLE has strong form claims in the second division of the Class 5 1m Maiden Stakes at Kempton, representing Andrew Balding, who is 79-467 (17% +£35.41) on this course in the past five years. 

The selection finished ninth of 10 on his debut over 1m on good to soft ground at Sandown in September, but Hollie Doyle, who knows this family particularly well, took over in the saddle when he produced a vastly improved effort over 7f on this course on his second and latest start in October. 

Screaming Eagle should relish the return to 1m at this venue and is fancied to go one place better on his seasonal reappearance. 

19:00 Kempton - Caragio @ 4/1 

CARAGIO was coming to the end of a long three-year-old season when his progression stalled in his final two starts of last term at Kempton in November, and he is fancied to resume his improvement on his seasonal reappearance in this nine-runner £15,000 Class 3 7f feature Handicap. 

The selection is representing Lambourn trainer Roger Teal, whose horses have a Run-To-Form figure of 100% in the past 14 days. Oisin Murphy is also resuming a winning association in the saddle having been on board when Caragio won comfortably over this course and distance from a 3lb lower mark in October. 

He raced prominently from stall five that day, and is drawn in stall three on this occasion, so the youngest member of this field should be handy enough to strike when Murphy sees fit to produce his challenge in the home straight. 

20:30 Kempton - Cock And Bull @ 5/2

COCK AND BULL makes significant appeal in the five-runner Class 6 1m4f three-year-old handicap, which concludes Kempton's evening card on the all-weather.  

The selection cost 35,000gns as a yearling, and is a half-brother to three winners at up to 1m6f out of a Group-placed 1m4f winner, so there was no real reason for alarm when he performed to a personal best Racing Post Rating (RPR) of just 54 in his three starts from 7f to 1m as a juvenile last term. 

Hector Crouch took over in the saddle on board Michael Bell's representative recently on his handicap debut over this 1m4f trip on Wolverhampton's Tapeta surface. Crouch is 9-45 (20% +£24.82) when riding for Bell on the all-weather and the combination almost enhanced that strike-rate. 

The son of Make Believe reached an improved neck second of nine (RPR 68) from this evening's mark of 56 and there was nearly eight lengths back to the favourite in third. He looks capable of going one place better now switched to this course after a quick turnaround.
