Verdict

CONNETABLE hasn't enjoyed a great time of it in 2017 but he bounced back to form at Sandown recently over a longer trip and is appealingly weighted now dropped in distance if that was a sign that a corner has been turned. He can ensure former champion trainer Paul Nicholls leaves Kempton on Boxing Day with a smile on his face. Handicap debutant Kildisart is well worthy of consideration on the back of his maiden win at Ascot last time out while Dashing Oscar is bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Fontwell and Bangor and isn't easy to ignore. Golan Fortune runs from an unchanged mark after winning at Ascot on Saturday while Rothman has been running well lately and could do so again with his rider taking off 5lb.
