In depth

Verdict

RICOCHET has gone close the last twice at Kempton. He never figured on his only previous run on Turf but is more the finished article now and may not have much to beat in this. Meghan Sparkle is probably the danger on her debut fourth at Kempton in December and she appears to have a good draw and is open to improvement. Gambon was third over this trip on his introduction at Ascot last year and would have claims on that form having raced over further since. Drummond Warrior might be worth a market check with his stable in good form lately.
