It could pay to take a chance on KING'S CHORISTER who is preferred to Rose Cheval and Bold Indian. The selection was a winner the last time he raced over today's trip and he can be forgiven a disappointing effort last time as he didn't get home over 1m4f. He also has ground conditions to suit and he can resume winning ways. Rose Cheval has yet to get her head in front but she is a nice filly and she could improve for this slight step up in trip. Bold Indian went close in a seller here last month and the horse that beat him that day Kind Heart was due to race tonight at Kempton so at this stage the form is hard to evaluate. Flora's Pride looks held by Bold Indian on their meeting here last time, and we are happy to stick with King's Chorister as the pick
