Welsh Sunrise - 2.00 Kempton

Two all weather meetings and a modest National Hunt card will provide Monday's action and while much of it is unlikely to live long in the memory, it's worth remembering that a 15/8 winner on a mundane money pays the same as a 15/8 winner at the Cheltenham Festival.

Just six head to post for the Fillies' Handicap on Kempton's card and the weights are headed by Barbs Princess.

She's beginning to prove quite expensive to follow for her supporters having been touched off when favourite twice and with a further rise in the weights for those efforts, life isn't exactly easier for Charlie Hills' inmate on this occasion.

WELSH SUNRISE began her career with Gerard Butler and won over nine furlongs on debut. Having had a brief stay at Ed Walker's along the way, she was recently produced by Stuart Williams to score on her first start for the yard.

Stepping down to six is an obvious concern on Monday but you'd imagine that there is a fair likelihood of the race being staged at a generous pace as Clock Opera and Harvest Mist are noted pace angles and they could potentially create problems for Barbs Princess (who has raced prominently in the past).

Ray Of Joy could be a more plausible danger on balance. A five-time C&D winner, John Jenkins' mare hasn't obliged for two years but she's appearing to be particularly well handicapped these days and she wasn't that far away on her latest visit.
