Monday racing tips from Kempton, Wolverhampton and Catterick

First we have some details on the main tips for Monday meetings.

You can find a full list of selections at the bottom of the page.

Kempton (17:15) Dhabab

Dhabab can claim a Listed victory in the British Stallion Studs EBF Hyde Stakes at Kempton.

The John and Thady Gosden-trained gelding made a perfect return from over a year off the track with narrow success in a Lingfield handicap late last month, triumphing by a neck over Street Kid in a seven-furlong heat.

Dhabab’s margin of victory doesn’t really do him justice as he came from behind before finding enough pressure, replicating the kind of promise he showed as a juvenile last term.

A bigger winner at Leicester in June 2021, he wasn’t beaten much when sixth in the Coventry at Royal Ascot, while he also produced creditable efforts when third in the Superlative, fourth in the Mill Reef and fifth in Dewhurst.

Having shown an all-weather aptitude with his win at Lingfield, Dhabab looks exactly the kind of classy recruit who can make hay in the winter months.

Kempton (4.15pm) Stage show

Stage Show can make it third time lucky in the British EBF Novice Stakes for trainer Harry and Roger Charlton.

Last on his debut at Newbury in July, he produced an improved effort after a long layoff when finishing sixth at Doncaster last month.

A similar amount of progress could be good enough to see him break his streak.

Kempton (1545) Galaxy Glazer

Galaxy Gazer has yet to take the lead in five starts, but her moment to shine could come in the British Stallions Studs EBF Fillies’ Restricted Novice Stakes.

She has been close in all but her initial debut in April, most recently beaten two lengths in a tight finish at Chelmsford in September.

Galaxy Gazer was way too bold on the day and ran a bit clumsy at the end, but he certainly has ability.

Wolverhampton (1925) Shining Al Danah

Shining Al Danah looks another likely winner for the Gosden team in the Talksport Powered By Fans EBF Fillies’ Handicap at Wolverhampton.

Fifth at the Craven meeting at Newmarket on her introduction, she led her rivals on a merry dance at her second start at Yarmouth and continued on her return from a break at Newcastle last month.

She was 2-9 on the day and the winning margin was only half a length, but she was good for it and an 83 on her handicap debut might understate her potential.

Catterick (13:00) Check my pulse

Check My Pulse is the pick of Catterick’s Download The Vickers.Bet App Novices’ Handicap Chase.

He has hardly been a prolific winner, securing victory in just three of his 32 starts to date, but he showed a good attitude to prevail at Carlisle last month, digging deep to win by just over a length in his ninth attempt in that sphere.

The handicap has moved up by 4lb, but that increase is probably not insurmountable.

Catterick (3pm) Johnson’s Blue

Johnson’s Blue saw his winning run come to an end at Aintree earlier in the month but can bounce back quickly in the Handicap Hurdle.

The five-year-old was an excellent advertisement for Mark Walford’s training talents, winning four times at Hexham and once at Cartmel between March and July.

He had to settle for minor honors behind the high-class Remastered on his return from a break on Merseyside, but he could strip better for the run and has less on his plate here.


CATTERICK: 12.30 Artistic Choice, 1.00 Check My Pulse, 1.30 Royal Mogul, 2.00 We’ll Go Again, 2.30 Lilith, 3.00 Johnson’s Blue, 3.30 Sleeping Satellite.
