A LONG NIGHT AT KEMPTON PARK
The racing continues, and on Wednesday evening, we are at Kempton Park with more relaxed COVID-19 rules. Kempton Park was recently refurbished with 1000 tonnes of specially blended polytrack, which means the track going will be slow for a while as the fibre and wax wear out. So, it will be seven races on Wednesday, starting at five minutes before 6 PM. On a new track, the bookmakers will have a good chance of calling this one in their favour, with horses expected to put in more effort to deliver their usual performances.
Starting in the twilight of 5PM, the day’s first race is the BRITISH STALLION STUDS EBF RESTRICTED STAKES, a GBB race for horses in bands C and D. The Class 5 run will go for 1m, with a purse of GBP 7,000. All twelve participants will be two years old with an 11:1 colt to gelding ratio.
At 6:25 PM, the UNIBET EXTRA PLACE OFFERS EVERY DAY HANDICAP STAKES takes over with a mixed field of geldings and fillies going hard on the turf for GBP 7,200. Ten horses will be on the starting grid, battling over a Class 5 distance of 1m. The race is part of the London Mile Series Qualifier in Division 1. The horses will be rated 51-70.
Following the Division 1 run will be the Division 2 outing. The UNIBET EXTRA PLACE OFFERS EVERY DAY HANDICAP STAKES will run it back with another set of ten horses. Aussie Rascal will be the only colt on the field for both division races. Once again the distance to be run will be 1m, for a prize money of GBP 7,200. The two races will be for three-year-olds.
The fourth run will be another Class 5 but not part of the previous qualifier series. The UNIBET CASINO DEPOSIT GBP 10 GET GBP 40 BONUS NOVICE STAKES will run for 7f and a pot of GBP 6,500. The horses will be three years old and above. The field will be made of fourteen horses, with only one filly in the mix.
At 8 PM, the last Class 5 outing of the evening will be a tiring 1m 3f and 219y. The horses will be three years and above, rated 51-70 and going all out for GBP 7,200. The mix will be largely fillies with just one mare in a grid of eleven.
The last but one Unibet race of the day, the UNIBET 3 UNIBOOSTS A DAY HANDICAP STAKES, will be the biggest pot of the day at a whopping GBP 14,000. It will be a Class 3 run over a distance of 1m 2f and 219y. The horses will be rated 71-90 and maxed at three years old.
At 9 PM, the final run for the evening will get the gun, as the TRY OUR NEW BOOSTS AT UNIBET HANDICAP STAKES ends the day. A 6f run for GBP 5,527, the twelve horses will be Class 6 and rated 71-90.
