Plenty of action today domestically, Kempton has another all weather card whilst Yarmouth hosts the first proper turf action of the flat season. Happy Valley hosts competitive action in Hong Kong whilst Evereux in France and Belmont Park in the US. Yesterday’s results produced some interesting stories including a first winner for Mehmas at Newcastle over five furlongs. Word is he has produced some very nice horses and it will be interesting to see more by this first season sire hitting the track. Frankie Dettori also made his return to the track at Kempton winning on his only ride in nice style.
First ride back and a winner for @FrankieDettori!
Galsworthy (Dansili) is bred to be decent and opens his account comfortably for John Gosden at @kemptonparkrace

Every handicap looks very hot since the return to action and this race is no different. Maydanny looks a fair favourite who returns after close to a year off. Both his second place finishes came on vastly different ground to what we can expect today. At the prices, I am more than happy to try and seek some value elsewhere, to me it is a no brainer to take him on with Two Birds. William Haggis horse may still be a maiden but has some good form to his name on a range of going including good to firm. His most recent all weather run in November looks ok and the four-year-old hails from a yard that I have no fear about getting their runners ready for the delayed start to the flat season.
Diva Kareem can give us a nice priced winner of this class five 0-70 handicap, by Al Kazeem who was a top-class horse we don’t see to many of his on the racecourse due to his fertility issues. Diva Kareem has run well in three fair maiden races including when second last time out at Epsom on good to firm ground. I am a big fan of Cieren Fallon, he still is learning but his three pound claim is a huge bonus and I think this horse will get him off the mark for the new Flat season
