Betting

Forecast

Return Flight (9/4), Ericht (7/2), Foxtail Hill (9/2), Always On The Run (11/2), Rothman (7/1), Cloudy Bob (8/1), Rhapando (16/1)

Verdict
Plenty of Kempton Park regulars here including the well handicapped but badly out of form Cloudy Bob. Always on the Run would be a real force to be reckoned with here over two miles despite his rising mark, whilst Ericht promises to relish the prevailing ground conditions. This looks an easier option for Foxtail Hill than each of his last two races and it's feasible that he'll be suited by this trip. However, the vote goes to RETURN FLIGHT, who has thrived from a lowly starting point for Dan Skelton and has done nothing wrong whatsoever on both starts over fences, and could be underestimated by the others on account of his rapid rise up the weights since scoring off a mark of 100 over hurdles at Southwell in October. 1. Return Flight 2. Foxtail Hill 3. Ericht
