Sole win over jumps came in France for Emmanuel Clayeux (2m1f Aix-les-Bains; June 2016); most unlikely on Flat debut.

Eighth foal; brother to the 1m+ AW winner Hot Mustard; others appeal as likelier candidates; wide draw to overcome.

Has gradually built up a portfolio of placed form after seven starts, including when finishing 2L third to Dragon Mountain in a 1m2f Class 4 handicap (rated 76) here last month; chance.

Bought unraced for 25,000gns in October 2017; brother to the 1m3f-1m5f winner Tenzing Norgay; shown consistent form in all three starts on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (at up to 1m4f).

30,000gns yearling; absent since racing keenly over 7f at Newmarket in August 2017; difficult to assess, but is opposed.

Started at sizeable odds on both starts so far (1m2f-1m4f), and a similar scenario looks likely tonight based on the strength of those most underwhelming efforts.

10,000gns yearling; starting to look exposed following some low-key efforts of late, including over 1m on handicap debut (Class 5) at Ffos Las in August; more required over a new trip.

Brother to the 1m2f-2m winner Low Sun; not heading in the right direction form wise, but some of his earlier efforts (namely when placed over 1m2f at Newbury in July) make him a major player in a weak race.

Half-sister to five winners including Lady Dutch (5f-1m); very green on debut over 1m here last month (finished 11L fifth of 11 to Awalii); possibility of more to come over an extra 2f with that valuable experience banked.

100/1 when a tailed-off tenth of 12 on debut at Wolverhampton (1m1f+) in September; very unlikely judged solely upon that effort.

Dam was a 1m4f winner, and this filly is a half-sister to the 6f winner Angel of Darkness and the 7f-1m Newcastle regular Picketts Charge; low-key efforts so far (0-2), but could prove capable of winning at a lesser level once handicapped.

38,000gns foal; 30,000gns yearling; fourth foal; half-sister to winners Frown (1m2f-1m4f) and Skimp (1m); dam placed between 7f-1m2f.

Betting

Forecast

Silver Crescent (7/4), Caspar The Cub (15/8), Don't Look Down (9/2), Crezic (12/1), Lady Farhh (20/1), Le Precieux (25/1), Serjeant Painter (33/1), Maroon Bells (33/1), Sweetest Smile (33/1), Brecqhou Island (66/1), Petra's Pony (66/1), Lovelysimplylovely (66/1), Sargento (66/1)

Verdict

Not a strong race by Kempton standards, and difficult to pinpoint a selection with confidence. Caspar The Cub is shortlisted after a respectable third placed finish in a Class 4 C&D handicap, whilst Lady Farhh could play a stronger hand in this race than on debut here behind Awalii (1m). Maroon Bells is worth keeping an eye upon for the future (handicaps), but the most logical option is SILVER CRESCENT who ought to prove capable of winning a race of this nature judged upon his close up third to Asoof (1m2f, Newbury) in July.
  1. Silver Crescent
