Roger Charlton’s Rock Steady is all set for Kempton this evening, in the 6.45 32Red.com Handicap where the son of Intikhab looks set to make his sixth start a winner. There are 14 runners over the mile course and it looks like Charlton has plenty left to get out of this horse. He narrowly missed out on second place on his last outing, but looks good in training, definitely one to watch for the future. Odds on Rock Steady today are 3/1 with Paddy Power and he is the favourite going into the race.
North Creek is second favourite in this race, with odds of 6/1 with Coral, he is trained by Chris wall and was second on his last time out. He has had a rest since April so comes into this race fresh and ready.
Third favourite is Charlie Fellows’ Zain Emperor, he came 1st in his last race and won by 2 and a 1/2 lengths, so he will be in contention today, as long as the ground suits him, the going is standard today. Odds on Zain Emperor are 7/1 with William Hill.
Also up for the run today and not to be ruled out, again, as long as he can find his footings on the standard ground, is John Gosden’s Generalship who came a little unstuck on the softer ground on his last time out, but this time the ground should work in his favour. Odds on Generalship are a healthy 12/1 with Bet365.
There is plenty of other racing around today with races at Bath, Catterick, Lingfield and Yarmouth, but just a quick mention of the racing this weekend, when we will see Air Force Blue back on the track at Newmarket, 4.35 on Saturday . Aidan O’Brien has three runners in the race, but Air Force Blue will undoubtedly be the one to watch. The ground is already marked as firm and there are signs the weather should hold until Saturday which no doubt will suit him. Add the fact that Ryan Moore is set to back him and we have another winning combination. Odds currently stand at 14/1 with Coral, but that will all change quickly, although he is up against some good competition, Quiet Reflection is also in form.
As ever get your money on early for the best returns and Good Luck today.
