WHITE MOSS is the speculative pick with Sky Quest and The Grey One others to make the shortlist. Jim Best has the job of trying to coax a win from this frustrating character but she has had a run already this season and is well drawn tonight. Sky Quest bids for a hattrick. The 11-year-old had built up a good partnership with Nathon Allison but will be under more experienced handling today. This is no easy task. The Grey One has been busy around Southwell of late. The step back up in trip will not be a problem. Lunar River makes a first visit to Kempton. She has placed regularly over nine furlongs and has gone well fresh. Madam President was well beaten on handicap debut having exhibited promise in three maidens. Steve Gollings bagged a double under National Hunt rules earlier in the week so don't rule out a big run from Ermine Grey. Ex-Italian performer, Gasat, needs to be given a front run and the plating class winner will be popular with Seb Sanders booked. Watson's Bay is never too far away and seems to go best for Fergus Sweeney. Lytham has been kept busy over the spring period and yet another consistent effort gave the handicapper no option but to add to his weight burden. Waldorf appears a tad one paced but this step up in trip is very much in line with what his breeding suggests. White Moss is our pick in a race with plenty of plausible winners.
