Kerry Lee has made a tremendous start to her trainer career and one of the potential stars of her yard, KYLEMORE LOUGH(best price 5/2), is fancied to add to his impressive victory at Uttoxeter with conditions in his favour. His slightly disappointing effort first time over fences can be put down to fast ground, but he proved a totally different kettle of fish next time when he faced testing conditions at the Midland venue. Taking up the running at an early juncture, the son of Revoque pulled miles clear of his field on the final circuit and as the clocked backed up the visual performance of the victory, he should be ready to take this step up in class in his stride.
Kylemore Lough - 1pt @ 5/2
OUR CAT(best price 5/1) is at her best when allowed to bowl along in front, so once she failed to obtain an uncontested lead on her seasonal return at Kempton, it was no great surprise to witness her fall by the wayside once beaten in the home straight. That said, she did perform with a reasonable amount of promise through three-quarters of the contest and sure to have come on a good deal for that initial outing, Fergal O’Brien’s mare is likely to prove a totally different proposition at a track where she showed her best form last season. Under similar conditions to those she faces a year ago, the daughter of Royal Anthem jumped her rivals silly from the front to score in resounding fashion and there’s a fair chance she will repeat the dose if she can get her head in front from flag fall.
Our Cat - 1pt @ 5/1
SERENITY NOW (NAP)(best price 4/1) was heavily involved in a proper tear-up here nine days ago and providing he’s suffered no ill-effects from that bruising encounter, Brian Ellison’s charge makes quite a bit of appeal at the prices considering his overall record on this surface. Although he got beaten fair-and-square by the in-form Frosty Berry, there was certainly no disgrace in that performance and as the clock revealed, the son of Key Of Luck ran to his best ever speed figure on the polytrack surface. Add to that positive his form figures of 2132212 on the round track at the course and he has to rate a first-class each-way bet providing the dead-eight runners go to post.
