The Richard Hannon trained EXCELING (best priced at 10-3) was progressive in nurseries last year and the three-year-old has continued that improved form in handicaps this year. The three-year-old daughter of Exceed Of Excel has form figures of 31621 in handicap company (including nurseries) with her improving from an opening mark of 51 up to a mark of 61.

Exceling made it 2/2 over this course and distance in handicaps 12 days ago when she won by 1 ½ lengths off a mark of 57 and she should prove hard to beat off 4lbs higher in this race. Ringo Starlight looks the biggest danger to the selection but he is drawn in Stall 10 so preference goes to Exceling who is well drawn in Stall 1.

Exceling - 1pt @ 10/3

MAGICINTHEMAKING (best priced at 5-1) was a selection earlier this month at this track but was given a questionable ride that day by Rob Hornby and she is expected to perform much better in this race. The eight-year-old is a two time course winner but has a further six placed efforts with four of those coming over this trip of 6f.

Magicinthemaking was only beaten ½ length on her return this season over 7f here off a mark of 55 and is now back down to that same mark having finished 3rd and 7th on her previous two starts. The John Long trained mare finished 2nd off a mark of 61 on her last run over 6f here in November so she is clearly well handicapped off a mark of 55 and is expected to run well with four places on offer.

Magicinthemaking - 0.5pts e/w @ 5/1

The three previous wins of LOS CAMACHOS (best priced at 8-1) have all come at Kempton including the last two that have come over this distance of 7f under Grace McEntee. The latest of those wins came in September off a mark of 67 before placing on his next start over the same course and distance off a mark of 70.

Los Camachos has remained in good form this year with two 2nd placed efforts at Wolverhampton off marks of 70 and 69 including when he was only beaten a short head 17 days ago. He runs here off the same mark of 69 and connections have also decided to put a first time visor on the gelding rather than the usual blinkers that he wears. This return to Kempton will suit him well and he should run well with up to five places on offer.

Los Camachos - 0.5pts e/w @ 8/1
