LIGHTNING should be able to strike for Hughie Morrison again at Kempton.
There’s seventy grand up for grabs in the final of the 32Red London Middle Distance Series and BUZZ is the word.
The handicapper has been playing catch up with this four-year-old for much of the season and it would be no surprise if there was a bit more to come from Buzz (Kempton, 6.00).
The Ebor was once mooted as his long-term target, but after not staying the 1m6f trip at Nottingham, connections quickly scrapped that.
He returned to middle distances at Newbury and was a battling winner, before running a blinder from off the pace when well-fancied in the November Handicap.
He’s back on his beloved all-weather here, and is unbeaten in three efforts on the polytrack.
Whether this is the start of an all weather campaign over the winter I’m not sure. But he clearly goes well on the track and connections believe there’s a few more miles on the clock before the field beckons.
There’s plenty of competition amongst his rivals and given the money on offer, who can blame them?
However, he’s drawn nicely in three and that gives plenty of options to Liam Keniry. Just steer clear of that traffic please.
I like the chances of SUNBLAZER (Kempton, 6.30) for Kim Bailey. He’s available at each way prices and on his current mark, should be a big player back on the all weather over two miles.
GREY DIAMOND (Hereford, 3.50) is too big in the lucky last. Kingy has his string firing and I’d rather be with this youngster with his Bangor run over the Skelton horse at short odds.
