Free horse racing betting preview and tips for Monday February 19 - Kempton

Anita Chambers previews the action at Kempton this evening and has a tip for every race.

Cyrus Dallin turned in a satisfactory effort on his return from a lengthy lay off at Kempton at the beginning of the month and he can rank a few places higher back at that track in the ROA/Racing Post Owners' Jackpot Handicap.

William Muir's charge had been off since last August before returning with a fourth place behind the useful Humbert, clearly just being found out for a bit of match practice when push came to shove.

But he shaped with a fair bit of promise, on what was his first start since undergoing a gelding operation and he would be expected to be making some progress for that refresher.

The handicapper has actually dropped him 1lb for that effort and while Cyrus Dallin is still a little higher than his last winning mark, he can start to make strides now.

Age Of Wisdom romped home by nine lengths in a seller last time out and while he faces a tougher task in the 32Red Casino Handicap, he can rise to the challenge.

Out of luck in seven starts for Gary Moore up until that point, the trainer found an eminently winnable opportunity for the five-year-old and he responded as a 1/5 shot should.

Insomniac might be worth a chance in the 32Red Novice Stakes after a reasonable racecourse debut at the start of February.

He made a very slow start that day at Lingfield and gave himself far too much to do, but he still made some modest late headway to show that he might be capable of a win in due course.

Insomniac should at least be a bit more streetwise here and can make it second time lucky.
