Making every All Weather day a winning day
The Actuary Horse Racing Tips noted that after the decimation of yesterday and today’s racing fixtures, we are left with a fairly uninspiring card at Kempton Park which if nothing else gives rise to hope we will be racing there again tomorrow.
With our highest price selection at 9-1 it is noticeable that that there has been little in the way of major movement in the Kempton Park markets with a nibble here and a nibble there. Even where a major contender has been withdrawn the prices have remained fairly static with the exception of one race.
What has taken my eye is Handicap debutant The Bendy Fella who has shortened from an opening show of 20-1 last night with Bet365 and is generally half the price. Befair looks to be the best option hovering around 13.5.
In a race where most are exposed Class 6 performers, the Bendy Fella is a 5yo with only three runs in Class 5 Maidens back in March 2012 to its name. This would suggest that Mark Usher felt there was something worth persevering with in this horse.
It is also notable that the jockey on all three of those previous runs and Mark Ushers usual poison of choice 5lb claimer Lee Newnes finds himself riding Sylvester Kirks Glennten while George Baker takes the ride on The Bendy Fella.
