The races at Kempton tonight don't get any easier and GAP PRINCESS is taken to land this from Credit Swap and Charlie Delta. The selection has only ever run once on an artificial surface but unlike many of these she is an admirably consistent sort who has only been out of the first two once in her last five starts. This trip suits and provided she handles the Polytrack then there is every reason to believe she can win. Credit Swap is lightly-raced and could improve here. He has a 6f Lingfield maiden win to his name and has gone well in defeat on his two most recent starts. He can go close here. Charlie Delta relishes fast ground and either six or seven furlongs, but he has only won once on the Polytrack in the past after a number of attempts and perhaps it just isn't his thing. He is also high enough in the weights. Rambling Light might give them a bit to think about, though he too has not been missed by the assessor. Onceaponatime is back on a winning mark and the yard is not in bad nick, so he is respected, but Gap Princess is recommended.
