19:50 Kempton: Timeform preview and free Race Pass
The 19:50 at Kempton on Wednesday is available as a free Race Pass, which means logged-in customers can view all our premium comments and ratings.
The highlight on Kempton’s card is the listed Wild Flower Stakes over a mile and a half (19:50) with some smart performers among the field of nine including the first two home from last year.
‘Hot trainer’ Charlie Appleby has two good chances, with preference among his pair being for the Timeform top-rated Siskany (weight-adjusted rating 122) who was last year’s runner-up. He gained his first career win as a two-year-old on his other visit to the track so should be more at home here than when a well-held third in heavy ground in Germany earlier in the month, though that was a Group 1 contest. Siskany is going for a third listed win of the year after successes at Meydan early on and more recently at Newmarket, both of which were smart efforts. His Newmarket win came in first-time cheekpieces which are retained here.
Younger stablemate Wild Crusade (120) also boasts a good track record as he was a course-and-distance winner in a novice and handicap in his first two starts this year and was beaten only half a length in a listed race, again over course and distance, by another stablemate, Warren Point, here last month. Also successful in a handicap at Ascot during the summer, Wild Crusade has made into a smart three-year-old and also ran well two starts ago when finding another Godolphin gelding, Al Nafir, a neck too good in the Old Rowley Cup at Newmarket.
