Today's Horse Racing Tips: Play two against the field at Kempton

Today's selections come from Kempton.
Today's selections come from Kempton.

My advice for yesterday was to sit back, relax and enjoy! Three beaten favourites and a King George victory for Frodon (20/1), my favourite horse in training, made that very difficult. Frodon and Bryony Frost were simply brilliant from the front, but it was one of the only times in recent years that my money wasn’t down on the pair. He will surely now be aimed at the Gold Cup.

With today’s Welsh Grand National meeting at Chepstow abandoned due to a waterlogged track, I have picked out two bets at Kempton.

Kempton Tips

15:05 – 3m Ladbrokes Committed To Safer Gambling Handicap Chase (Class 2)

THE KINGS WRIT (0.5 point win bet at 10/1) is a consistent performer over fences and registered two decent placed efforts at the turn of the year before ending the season by finishing in midfield in the Kim Muir Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.  

Kayley Woollacott’s nine-year-old will run off the same handicap mark today as when he finished second to Worthy Farm at Wincanton three starts back. He jumped really well from the front that day and another bold show is expected here.  

The fact that he recently made his seasonal reappearance over hurdles and over an inadequate trip would suggest that he has been aimed at a race like this. He wasn’t disgraced in third and the run should have put him spot on in terms of his fitness. He possesses plenty of stamina and will be suited by today’s ground conditions given the overnight rain at Kempton.  

The return to Kempton can also bring about a return to form for ERICK LE ROUGE (0.5 point win bet at 10/1), who has recorded form figures of 1114 from his four previous visits to the course. One of those victories came in good style over fences earlier this year and his only defeat here was in the Grade 2 Pendil Novices’ Chase. He has long been considered a three-mile chaser by connections and has had wind surgery since his last run.
