So get on as soon as you can, as fancy odds about Early Du Lemo (1.55 Sandown) might not last.

Trainer Gary Moore has a brilliant record at the track, and the five-year-old gelding had some smart form over hurdles.

He was badly hampered at the first fence when down the field on chasing debut in a good race at Chepstow last month.

That effort is easily forgiven, and he will love the step up to 2m4f here.

He has dropped to an attractive mark of 119, particularly when you consider his second to Sizing Granite (now rated 150) in March.


At Kempton on Friday night, Me Too Nagasaki (7.45 Kempton) makes plenty of appeal on his first start for Stuart Williams.

A useful type when in training with Jeremy Noseda, he has mainly been campaigned over further.

However, he is speedily-bred and has more than enough pace to cope with this drop back to 6f.

He looks on a decent enough mark and gets a tongue tie for the first time.
