KEEP KICKING has joined Simon Dow from Jonjo O'Neill and looks to have a good chance of opening his account on the Flat in this. The top weight won a jumper's bumper on the Polytrack over the winter and races off the same mark as when only beaten a length over a similar trip at Warwick in May. Outback, a winner over hurdles last October, is a regular here and has been placed in his last three starts on the track so looks the main danger, though three-year-old Kelvingrove might improve over the longer trip. Lea Valley races from out of the handicap and was tailed off on her reappearance earlier this month.
