Lion Set To Dance Home At Kempton
Quick Returner Has Conditions Just Right To Win Again
Newmarket trainer Philip McBride is in a purple patch at the moment, with three winners from his last six runners, and one of them, SIMBA SAMBA, contests the Bet At racingtv.com Handicap at Kempton this evening. The son of Brazilian sire Leroidesanimaux won convincingly at Newcastle last Friday, pulling away from Macs Blessing, who had won over that course and distance a month ago. Kodi Dream, fourth and first in his previous two outings, was down the field, so the form is good. Simba carries a six pounds penalty, but the manner of that victory doesn't suggest that this will be enough to stop him collecting again. He is top on BTO regular ratings and gets six ticks from a possible 12 for being best in the field. RED PHOENIX looks a distinct second best, being an all the way winner last time out at Lingfield after being gelded and having 84 days off, whilst NANANITA is consistent and being backed. At 2/1 Simba Samba looks the one.
