An action-packed evening of racing comes from Kempton Park on Wednesday with nine races down for decision at the Sunbury-on-Thames venue.

The Polytrack is forecast to ride 'Standard-to-slow' for this meeting and they get underway at 16:24, with the nightcap due off at 20:30.

We've picked out a trio to follow, including Local Bay in the opener for trainer Tony Carroll after a promising effort last month at Lingfield.

Kempton Park Tips - Wednesday, March 6

  • 16:24 Kempton – Local Bay @ 6/1
  • 18:00 Kempton – Bora Bora @ 10/3
  • 20:00 Kempton – Rogue Dream @ EVS

16:24 Kempton – Local Bay @ 6/1

LOCAL BAY has a pleasing all-weather strike-rate (4-15) and could be ready to add another win in the opening apprentice handicap over a mile in the hands of 5lb claimer Jack Doughty for trainer Tony Carroll.

The son of Cable Bay hit form last spring, notching a couple of wins at Southwell and then going very close to the hat-trick at Wolverhampton under his second penalty, all over 7f.

He was in-and-out of form on the turf across the summer, though did score for the first time at Brighton in August over a mile.

He ran on from the back to be a never-nearer fourth at Lingfield over 7f in his comeback at the start of February, with the clear-cut winner advertising that form again since. Though yet to score in the Class 4 company, Local Bay stays this mile well and could go close now with a run behind him, especially if a return to more positive tactics is permitted.

18:00 Kempton – Bora Bora @ 10/3

Thank The Lord (first) got the better of BORA BORA (third) at Chelmsford recently in a contest where the first four home flashed passed the post almost in unison.

The winner is effectively better off on these terms as Luke Morris takes over from claimer Frederick Larson on Bora Bora but there's still reason to be optimistic the outcome can be different.

John Butler's charge was slow getting out of the gates at Chelmsford and got behind the pack in the early part of the race.

He still had it all on to get competitive off the home bend, but came home to excellent effect and might well have put his head in front granted another couple of strides.

For a horse that had tended to race close to the pace, losing that early ground was no help. It was also his first start down at the 6f trip and he'd have found things happening fast enough, but showed he can make up ground late over this distance.

He remains unexposed at the trip and the nature of Kempton should allow him plenty of time to get into full cry in the home straight.

20:00 Kempton – Rogue Dream @ EVS

Jack Jones' filly ROGUE DREAM appears to have plenty going for her after an improved showing at Wolverhampton on Saturday.

She was 150/1 at Chelmsford in a novice contest on stable bow (third start) when she returned from a break at the start of February and ran as if needing the outing.

She went up to 7f for her handicap debut at Wolverhampton and chased home market leader Sunblock for the George Boughey team.

The pair were clear and looked like two lightly-raced sorts with more to come. Rogue Dream is 3lb well-in now and should make another step forward.
