Lucky 15

Wednesday's fare includes a turf flat card from Leopardstown (subject to a morning inspection - looks potentially problematic); and three all-weather meetings on the level from Lingfield, Wolverhampton and Kempton. Jump racing is represented by Market Rasen.

Some of the game's bigger guns are at Kempton for their seven-race card so that's where we'll visit, too. The briefest glance reveals names of the calibre of Murphy, Ryan, and Kingscote - that will do nicely for me, thank you.

Lucky 15 tips Wednesday

  • 18:00 Kempton - Goodwood Odyssey @ 11/8
  • 19:00 Kempton - Jackson Street @ 3/1
  • 19:30 Kempton - Going The Distance @ 13/8
  • 20:00 Kempton - Moel Arthur @ 5/2

18:00 Kempton - Goodwood Odyssey @ 11/8

A Class 5, one mile novice stakes, and our selection is in the care of trainer David Menuisier.

The famous colours of the Goodwood Owners Group are carried by this three-year-old son of Ulysses, and he's reappearing after a solitary run at two, back in October.

That resulted in a pleasing win at a big price at Salisbury, beating several from notable yards, and hopes will be high that he can go on to better things this term. He probably sets the standard among those that have run but has a penalty for winning that earlier contest to defy.

Nice race, good chance.

19:00 Kempton - Jackson Street @ 3/1

Small field, but an open look to it. Jackson Street is a Karl Burke raider travelling all the way from Middleham Moor for this 7f Class 4 handicap. The three-year-old colt's sire is a horse I remember seeing race many times, the great Dandy Man, and if memory serves he never went a yard over 6f in public - and usually only 5f.

I doubt the trip will scupper his son's chances though and I like the fact that connections evidently feel the journey could be worthwhile.

19:30 Kempton - Going The Distance @ 13/8

Rossa Ryan rides, for trainer Ralph Beckett.

This is a 1m 3f Class 4 handicap for three-year-olds, and the selection is on a three-timer - but hasn't run for 182 days. This will be his all-weather debut, but this progressive gelded son of Lope De Vega can take it in his stride.

Trip should be fine, given he won over 8.5f at Nottingham where you've really got to get home up that tough old finishing straight. A nice flat Polytrack surface around a few bends should in theory hold no terrors.

20:00 Kempton - Moel Arthur @ 5/2

Another small-but-select field, with an open flavour about it.

A real staying test - 2m, Class 4 handicap - and Moel Arthur, a six-year-old gelding handled by Brett Johnson, ran an excellent race here a month ago after a break of - 623 days!

Before the lengthy lay-off he achieved plenty, winning and going close at some quality venues, and has sound previous Kempton form, as mentioned. The excellent Callum Shepherd takes the mount and if all's well after that reappearing spin he'll hopefully take all the beating.

This is an example of a Lucky 15. If you can improve upon my selections (of course you can), then go for it!

The odds can fluctuate between publishing our pieces and race-time. As a guide, a £0.50p win Lucky 15 on today's selections, at the prices, and assuming all four won, would return around £137 for your total £7.50 stake.
