Kempton Park Racecourse

Kempton stages a seven-race affair, running from 17:50-21:00, on Wednesday and the going is expected to be standard to slow.

Among my Kempton Park tips is an impressive last-time-out winner who can follow up despite a substantial rise in the weights.

Kempton Park Tips

  • 19:30 - Jayyash @ 1/1
  • 20:30 - Invincible Speed @ 9/2
  • 21:00 - The Hun @ 9/1

19:30 - Jayyash @ 1/1

This 0-78 event for three-year-olds and it’s well worth watching. There are plenty of horses with good chances, but James Tate’s INVINCIBLE SPEED gets the nod from us.

The son of Invincible Spirit’s first three runs didn’t exactly set the world alight but they weren’t terrible efforts either. It was a completely different story on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time out however, and he absolutely bolted up.

Pulling clear to win by four lengths, he appeared to be in a completely different league to his rivals and a 10lb rise in the weights looks more than justified. This horse is very lightly raced and further improvement is expected, with the experienced Neil Callan on board.

20:30 - Invincible Speed @ 9/2

There are several last-time-out winners in this field and it would be no surprise if this race throws out numerous winners in the future and John & Thady Gosden’s JAYYASH looks like the one to side with.

Thoroughly unexposed, he’s had just three starts to date and has shown improvement with every run. He was fifth on his debut at Newmarket in July and there was no shame in that performance, as the winner went on to take the Group 2 Royal Lodge.

A slow start prevented him from getting off the mark at Southwell on his seasonal reappearance last month but he kept on nicely to finish second by a neck. Stepping up to a mile at Kempton when last seen, he duly obliged and the form has been boosted by the second, who has won subsequently.

Further progress seems likely on his handicap bow here and an opening mark of 80 looks very workable. A follow-up victory may well be on the cards and Gosden’s runners are operating at a strike-rate of 29% in the last fortnight, which certainly bodes well.

21:00 - The Hun @ 9/1

Karl Burke’s THE HUN was largely consistent as a juvenile, excluding his last run, but it’s possible that he wasn’t a fan of the soft ground that day. He’ll surely be suited by the step up to 1m4f on his first start as a three-year-old, judging by his form over 1m2f last term.

A son of Showcasing, he came closer than ever to getting off the mark when third by less than a length at Pontefract in October. He was outpaced at the two furlong pole that day before keeping on nicely and it surely won’t be long before he starts winning races.

The switch to handicaps should bring about plenty of improvement and an opening mark of 78 doesn't look harsh. Burke has saddled plenty of winners in the last couple of weeks and the excellent Billy Loughnane has been booked for the ride.
