FLAMBOROUGH BREEZE landed a hat-trick of victories at Kempton when successful on Wednesday evening. She may need to dig a bit deeper under a double penalty today but is worth sticking with in her current mood. Alezanna is lightly-raced and makes more appeal than the more exposed types such as Bajan Story and Benandonner while Beauchamp Xerxes has been given every chance by the handicapper as he plunges down the weights but has yet to show any benefit. Electrician was placed in a seller last time and could make the frame again.
