Timeform pick out their three best bets from Newcastle on Wednesday…
“His yard has a very good record with runners here and he commands respect…”
Timeform on Kentucky Kingdom
MY TARGET has a good record on a synthetic surface, though things haven’t gone to plan for him in recent runs. If he is ridden closer to the pace or gets a stronger pace to aim at, he should be able to take advantage of a falling all-weather mark. Come On Tier may strip fitter for his slighly unlucky reppearance at Kempton last time. Trevithick also had excuses last time.
KENTUCKY KINGDOM looked like a colt who will progress for his talented handler last time at Wolverhampton, proving he handles the tapeta surface. His yard has a very good record with runners here and he commands respect. Fiction Writer will give him a race if he repeats his debut run, while Shanghai Grace is best of the remainder.
ROYAL PROSPECT held Nick Vedder by a short-head the last time they met here at the end of the November. They reoppose once again with the latter 1 lb better off, but the less exposed Julie Camacho gelding should be able to improve and get the better of him once again. Athollblair Boy might be playing for third behind them.
