There's a Class 2 sprint at Lingfield in the afternoon but as there's now only 4 runners I'll give that one a miss.
Later on at 7.45 Wolverhampton stage another Class 2 handicap over 5f worth £28,000 to the winner and its a pretty uninspiring field of runners for the decent pot.
Some of these horses have run more times against each other than Coe and Ovett did in the eighties!
You usually need a draw near the rail in the sprints here and although Kimberella is drawn in 5 you would hope that would be good enough given there's not much on his inside. He was only beaten a short head behind Kachy last time out at Lingfield in the Listed Cleeve Stakes and a reproduction of that effort should see him go close.
None of the others jump off the page to make me think they are going to run out of their skin or trouble Kimberella and hopefully this 8yo can have another winning day.
I don't think he needs to be ridden in any particular way and he can usually be relied upon to put in a solid shift and Paul Hanagan firms the selection up a bit more.
