It’s a big evening for football, but hopefully the cash will be coming home courtesy of a big 2pt Nap at Kempton shortly before kick off….

NAP OF THE DAY: Sicario, (1825 Kempton), 2pts win, 5/1 generally available
Jamie Osborne is a trainer who does particularly well on all weather surfaces. His leading owner Michael Buckley likes to buy from unusual US pedigrees which tend to favour this surface. Sicario has just such a background and huge room for improvement after just four runs and now returned to the synthetics. His handicap debut 4th of 7 on Brighton’s turf was much better than it reads. He got no run and had to sit and suffer. Even then the form is strong as the first, third and fifth from there have won again since. Spencer is booked tonight and he is strongly fancied to come good at a track which should be ideal.
Montague, (1540 Catterick), 2/1: David O’Meara’s horse’s are in typically productive summer form, and he worked the magic with this struggling 3yo by dropping him into a claimer where his pace-setting tactics registered a win. He was second last week when trying to repeat that at Carlisle. That’s a stiff track for those tactics – this is much more suitable, and with McGovern’s excellent 5lb claim and a near rail draw he will be hard to catch.
Ventura Crest, (1645 Catterick), 11/2: another low drawn front runner at Cattterick. This 3yo has room to progress having narrowly failed to make all at a mile recently. Jockey David Allan is sure to be aggressive from stall one, and this less demanding course and distance can help him last home.
Kingston Kurrajong, (1720 Kempton), 9/1: a bit of a course specialist he can be a bit of an eye-catcher as he often finishes late from out the back. This sharper trip is a gamble as he has raced almost exclusively at a mile, but given his run style he needs a very strong pace to be at his best and that is more likely down at this trip. It’s worth a flutter.
