Anita Chambers says Noble Silk appeals in the William Hill - iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini Handicap at Kempton on Saturday.

Botti: Can hit the target at Kempton


KEMPTON: 1.45 Big Sylv, 2.20 Haftohaf, 2.55 NOBLE SILK (NAP), 3.30 West Leake, 4.05 Too Difficult, 4.35 Ishetoo, 5.05 Whipphound.

NAAS: 1.00 Stoney, 1.35 Solwhit, 2.10 Aupcharlie, 2.45 Un Atout, 3.20 Speed Dial, 3.50 Popaflora, 4.20 Super Mix.

DOUBLE: Noble Silk and Haftohaf.

Noble Silk makes plenty of appeal in the William Hill - iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini Handicap at Kempton after scoring at the Sunbury venue on his most recent outing.

The four-year-old has not enjoyed the best of luck in the past but everything fell right for him when running out a half-length winner earlier in the month.

Victorious in a Lingfield maiden last September, Noble Silk subsequently turned in two decent second-placed efforts at the same track before the turn of the year.

He was edged out in the shadow of the post on both of those occasions but finally managed to put his head in front on the line when reversing previous form with Wildomar.

The application of first-time cheekpieces seemed to work the oracle for Lucy Wadham's charge that day, as did the switch to a right-handed track.

A 2lb rise for that victory seems fair enough and Noble Silk remains unexposed and open to plenty more improvement yet.

Marco Botti could be in for a good afternoon and Haftohaf can get the ball rolling in the William Hill - iPad App Now Available Handicap.

Twice a winner last year, he was sent off an odds-on favourite to open up his 2013 campaign with a win over a mile at this track, but had to settle for third behind Lowther.

The four-year-old was beaten by two decent sorts that day and proved he stays a mile ahead of his second attempt at the trip.
