19:00 Kempton: Timeform preview and free Race Pass

Eight runners are set to go to post for this seven-furlong handicap (19:00), the most valuable race on Wednesday’s evening card at Kempton.
Mudlahhim (121) sets the standard on Timeform’s weight-adjusted ratings. Formerly trained by Kevin Prendergast, for whom he won a Dundalk handicap in October 2020, Mudlahhim proved at least as good as ever when making a successful debut for Kevin Philippart de Foy over this course and distance in August, only winning by a half a length but looking to have a bit more left in the locker. He is now two from two on the all-weather and a 3 lb rise in the weights is unlikely to prove beyond him, so another bold bid is expected on his return from four months on the sidelines.
May Night (120) can also boast an impressive strike rate on the all-weather with four wins from six starts, including back-to-back victories in the last seven weeks, first over this course and distance and then at Wolverhampton. He put up a career-best effort to defy a BHA mark of 77 on the last occasion, asserting inside the final furlong to win by three quarters of a length in comfortable fashion. This represents his toughest test yet, stepping up significantly in grade from a career-high mark (also 1 lb out of the weights), but it would be folly to rule out further progress given his career trajectory.
