The Trainer Snippers report shows that Phil McEntee has a decent record with last time out winners. From his last 37 such runners, he’s had ten winners (27.03%) and 15 places (40.54%), for level stakes profits of 11.08 and 2.82 respectively and an Impact Value of 1.44.
London goes for him today in a seven-furlong handicap at Kempton and was a winner last time out.
London’s win last time out was over a mile at Southwell and he has never run here at Kempton before. His record on the all-weather courses is far better than his turf form so I am hopeful that he will be fine on this surface.
He also at home over seven furlongs having won two and been placed in five of his races at this distance.
Phil McEntee has been in great form recently, as over the past couple of weeks he’s had four winners (28.57%) and six places (42.86%) from 14 runners, for level stakes profits of 3.25 and 2.66 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.54.
Nicola Currie has been riding with plenty of confidence of the past few weeks and has managed six wins from 29 rides (20.69%) for a small level stakes profit and an Impact Value of 1.84.
The Instant Expert report shows that London is reasonably well suited to today’s conditions, with one section of green and two of amber on the ‘Place’ setting. He is five pounds higher in the weights than for his last win but as that was quite a comfortable victory I am confident that he can make a bold bid to defy that rise.
No other runner in the race has more than two sections of green.
From looking at the Pace report we can see that early leaders here over this distance have a useful record, with 13.60% of them winning the race, for a level stakes profit of 125.05 and an Impact Value of 1.70.
London has the highest pace score in this field and also has an excellent draw in stall two. Makaarim is drawn inside him in stall one and he is not usually a fast starter, therefore, it looks a good opportunity for London to grab the lead where Nicola Currie can then dictate the race and hopefully have the stamina to be able to hold them all off.
