The best bet on the Kempton card this evening is the well-backed Momayyaz, who looks a fine bet at 3/1 in the Download The BetVictor App Now Handicap and strikes me as an all-weather specialist.
The selection is unbeaten in both starts on the surface and looks a Polytrack performer to treat with real respect. She won a maiden comfortably back in August before shooting clear when finding the room to manoeuvre at Wolverhampton in handicap in September.
There, she beat a 94-rated rival in Capo Rosso who went onto be a subsequent winner when dropped back in trip at Wolverhampton. Her form is strong and working out well.
She didn’t get her conditions last time out at Pontefract on soft going but still ran well under her revised mark to finish a fast finishing fourth to give the impression that there is plenty more to come, especially on this surface. The jockey booking of young apprentice Kevin Stott also has to be seen as a major positive.
Trainer Saeed Bin Suroor has been quick to analyse that Stott is the next best thing since sliced bread on the apprentice scene and the youngster has ridden three winners from six rides for the stable.
Stott rode an impressive double for Godolphin when we was in attendance at Lingfield a couple of weeks back and it was hard not to pour extensive praise on the shoulders of the young jockey. It was his adaptability and all-round abilities that really drew him to our attention as both rides showed off his different qualities.
The win on Hidden Gold for the boys in blue was a more waiting effort that showed his capabilities of judging pace from the back of the field whilst his win on Evening Rain was a more punch effort from the front.
Forcing the horse’s head to the front when all were challenging in behind him. He’s a jockey going places and he’s well worth following when given the required ammunition from a strong stable like Bin Suroor’s.
His stable has been rocketing in the winners of late, sending our 19 winners this month, including a healthy strike rate of 41% from a wide ranging number of 27 runners.
Today’s selection has plenty going for her and despite the tough nature of the race, she can run a huge race at 3/1.
