The form of those with previous experience in the mile restricted novice at Kempton Park (4.15pm) isn’t overly strong and the run of Romantic Memories at Newbury last time is right up there with what is on offer, so I’m surprised to see her so big in the market this morning.
She looked in need of the experience when down the field at Salisbury on debut in August, but she showed a fair bit of ability on her second start at Newbury 11 days ago, travelling nicely in front and keeping on well once headed, maybe just finding the mile on soft ground a little too much of a test.
This surface looks highly likely to suit on pedigree, with two of her three winning siblings scoring on the All-Weather, while the promising first-season sire Time Test is 21% with his runners on the AW to date.
There are a couple of interesting newcomers in here, but at the price I am happy to side with the experience of Romantic Memories, who is well drawn in stall 3, while Jack Mitchell is a positive jockey booking.
4.15pm Kempton Park – 1pt each-way Romantic Memories @ 33-1 (BetVictor, William Hill, Skybet, 28-1 elsewhere)
