5/1

Only previous effort at this venue came over 6f where he led until headed inside the final furlong before weakening into fourth. This minimum trip is more suitable and may not be far away.

Scored at Lingfield in June over this trip off the same mark but hasn't run well last two starts and appears to have gone off the boil.

Landed a 5f Goodwood handicap in heavy ground in late-August but hasn't run to that level in three subsequent outings off higher marks. Tailed off last of seven on only previous run on AW.

5-36 on the AW but has never raced before at Kempton. On 22-race losing streak and hasn't really done enough of late to suggest that run is going to come to an end here.

First-time visor did the trick when winning at Lingfield penultimate start, but got outpaced before staying on again on return visit there last time out. This track may suit better and yard is in good form of late so may be worth another chance.

Won twice at Bath in May at this trip but is only 1-18 on AW. Fair effort at Chelmsford latest following nine-week break and may not be far away on that evidence.

Grand servant who has won 10-84 and went very close at Lingfield penultimate start. Fairly handicapped if in the mood and is certainly not without hope of grabbing at least a place.

Has won twice on turf but yet to reach a place on AW after three attempts. Eased further 3lb and on a tempting mark though if able to transfer turf form to this surface.

16/1

Has won five times on turf but is 0-10 on AW. Beaten favourite in modest company on three of last five starts and has become a bookies friend. Hard to recommend on recent evidence.

Betting

Forecast

Toolatetodelegate (85/40), Midnight Guest (5/1), Spot Lite (5/1), Ask The Guru (6/1), Roy's Legacy (7/1), Sandfrankskipsgo (9/1), Defining Moment (10/1), Flowing Clarets (16/1), Firenze Rosa (20/1), Zipedeedodah (25/1)

Verdict

A typically open sprint handicap but with her yard in form MIDNIGHT GUEST probably has more to offer than most of these and could still be on the upgrade. Spot Lite may make a bold bid from the front, and old timers Ask The Guru and Roys Legacy can't be ruled out of the equation. Toolatetodelegate shaped with promise last time on his first run following a break and may not be too far away either.
