Tip Of The Day: Saint’s Alive
Saint Honore's return to all-weather action caught the eye at Lingfield last month and she is fancied to build on that promise at Kempton this afternoon.
Paddy Bradley: Back on board Saint Honore at Kempton today.
I give you three horses for Chelmsford City last night, the first two win at chunky prices and the one I actually make my selection blows out. What a game. But we must bounce back.
With trainer Pat Phelan in need of a winner and Saint Honore 0-7 at Kempton, it's perhaps no surprise to see her available at a double-figure price, but this mare's record on Polytrack last winter was most impressive – her all-weather form figures last winter were '113124', so there's no issue with her handling the surface.
Having struggled a little on turf in the summer, she returned to action after five months off at Lingfield last month and produced a highly eyecatching effort in staying on for fourth. Watch the replay now and make your own mind up.
She travelled particularly well and finished only inches behind Dutch Uncle, who franked the form when finishing second earlier this week.
Sophie Ralston is off here and replaced by Paddy Bradley, whose record on Saint Honore reads '112'.
A big, late-maturing mare, there's every chance she might have returned to the track an improved performer for her autumn break and although this is quite a competitive contest, I like her claims very much – and I like her price even more.
