Chris Baker: Guineas heroine Brook to sparkle at Kempton

Chris Baker's Nap of the day runs at Kempton on Wednesday.
Chris Baker's Nap of the day runs at Kempton on Wednesday.

Yesterday’s NAP Mubakker (advised at 9/4) won in good style at Newcastle and is certainly a colt to follow over the coming weeks and months. Settled off the pace, Dane O’Neill’s mount quickly put the race to bed once asked for an effort and was chased home by the admirable Glen Shiel.

There is a good card at Kempton today, and I have picked out one bet. Good luck if you decide to follow.

Kempton Tip

15:55 – 1m EBF/Unibet Snowdrop Fillies' Stakes (Listed Race) 

The 2018 1000 Guineas winner BILLESDON BROOK (NAP – 1 point win bet at 4/1) lines up for this Listed contest and will be hard to beat if returning anywhere near her best. Richard Hannon’s talented mare added a second Group 1 victory when taking the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket back in October, beating the likes of Laurens and Hermosa to take her career earnings past the £700,000 mark. 

In between those two top-level successes, she also won in Group 3 and Listed company and took her record to 2-2 when racing on the All-Weather. She was a two-year-old winner on her only previous visit to Kempton, is well drawn in stall 4 and has regular jockey Sean Levey on board. 

With a mark of 116, she is far superior to today’s rivals on official ratings and can therefore defy a 7lb penalty up against a host of runners rated only in the high 90s and low 100s. 

John Gosden’s Scentasia, who holds a Group 1 entry, and Sir Michael Stoute’s Romola, the mount of Ryan Moore, both look open to plenty of improvement and are the biggest dangers. Nazeef, who comes here on a four-timer, would have rated higher if it wasn’t for her wide draw.
