Saturday Selections. Kempton & Navan. (07/04/2018)

Saturday 7th April 2018

This is quite possibly one of the weakest Saturday’s of racing you’ll likely ever see. A combination of the weather and the fact we are pretty much in between big national hunt spring festivals and the start of the flat season has left us pretty bare this weekend.

As you can probably guess im focusing on the flat meetings on offer at Kempton and Naas. Here are my fancies..


2.05 – A Momentofmadness (11/4) (Jockey: W Buick – Trainer: C Hills)

(Hasn’t won since winning this last year. A decent run on reappearance the last day when behind 3rd behind Tomily. Likely to build on that and could well give another bold showing in this.)


3.15 – La Figlia (7/2) (Jockey: J Doyle – Trainer: J Noseda)

(I’ve been eagerly awaiting the return of this really intriguing Frankel filly. She ran very well when last seen when 4th in Listed company. There may well be a lot more to come this term.)


4.25 – King’s Shield (8/13) (Jockey: O Murphy – Trainer: J H M Gosden)

(Related to some some smart performers and won well on debut at Newcastle the last day. Likely a lot more to come and should take all the beating here.)


5.00 – Gavlar (7/1) (E/W) (Jockey: C Shepherd – Trainer: W J Knight)

(Only won one of last twenty starts however was runner up in this off eight pounds higher a couple of years ago. Looks to be on a mark when he should be getting competitive now.)



2.10 – Pretty Boy Floyd (3/1) (Jockey: D E Hogan (5) – Trainer: Mrs S Dawson)

(Ran a decent race the last day on reappearance when in fourth. Likely to build on that and could put on a bold showing.)


2.45 – Bluesbreaker (13/2) (E/W) (Jockey: R P Cleary – Trainer: D English)

(Been kept busy on the all weather over at Dundalk throughout the winter which means he comes here fit. Has won on testing ground before and may well get involved in not the strongest of fields.)


3.20 – Son Of Rest (5/6) (Jockey: C D Hayes – Trainer: J A Stack)

(Has won over this distance a couple of times and handles these conditions. Should be building on reappearance run in second the last day and should be going close.)


4.30 – Inscribe (2/1) (Jockey: C T Keane – Trainer: G M Lyons)

(Won his last two races since being gelded both on soft/heavy ground. Could well improve again here and go close.)


NAP: La Figlia – 3.10 Kempton

NB: A Momentofmadness – 2.05 Kempton
