Duc De Bourbon v Diamond River

Well, Thursday’s markets for this Friday Kempton race showed no sign of a split in favouritism between Duc De Borbon and Diamond River. There are stacks of inexperience throughout this racecard due to its nature.

Duc De Bourbon though, made his debut in December last year and took a fourth-place finish albeit just over 17 lengths back of the winner. He had gone off as 6/4 favourite for that one.

Diamond River was also a beaten favourite in his last run. His racecourse debut happened at Warick at the 2m distance in January. He was a 3/1 favourite but despite a third for trainer Nickey Henderson, it was a solid showing from him in a field of 18.

There looks to be plenty of progress to be made by both of the front runners for this one. They were 2/1 joint favourites on Thursday evening* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 6th, 2020 at 17:55).

Can Lord Baddesley upset the odds?

Lord Baddesly opened with a second-place on his racecourse debut at Worcester back in October. He was only beaten out by a neck as well in the run, in a field of 12. Lord Baddesly was a 40/1 shot for that one and he is in at 7/2 for this run* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 6th, 2020 at 17:55). He has to have some very good claims for the race.

Other potential winning candidates

Es Perfecto makes his debut here after winning a point-to-point over 3m in December. He has a new trainer in Alan King since banking that victory and it does make him an interesting entry for this Kempton action as a 5/1 option* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 6th, 2020 at 17:55).

Seymour Promise for Colin Tizzard looks as if he could come into spritely form on his debut. He has won a NH flat race at 2m 1f before and makes his racecourse debut on Friday. He looks, at least on paper, a very interesting each-way option at 16/1* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 6th, 2020 at 17:55).

Predictions & Tips

There is a key couple in the field who have already made their racecourse debuts and that is Diamond River and Duc De Bourbon. They can both be happy with their opening efforts as well.

Of the two of them, it is Duc De Bourbon who looks as if he could have just a little more about him. The interesting outsider worth some each way considerations is Seymour Promise at 16/1* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on February 6th, 2020 at 17:55)
