IT'S all eyes on Kempton on Wednesday with Alan backing 2-1 and 9-4 selections.
RETICENT ANGEL can overcome top weight in the 6f nursery. Clive Cox’s filly beat Sandridge Lad a short head at Lingfield and the runner-up ran well in defeat yesterday.
VERDANA BLUE moves into Listed company at Kempton this evening and Nicky Henderson’s mare can prove up to the task.
She has been in tremendous form, winning the Elite Hurdle at Wincanton before running on strongly into fourth in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Verdana Blue adapted to the all-weather at Chelmsford City in October, motoring home for a comfortable success over 1m 5f. This is a step up in grade but she represents a knocking bet.
