ADAM KIRBY: Wolverhampton / Kempton

My last two rides have been winners, so fingers crossed I can continue in good form over the weekend with three rides on Saturday.

The all-weather season is really in full flow but make no mistake plenty of the flat lads will be keeping one eye on the action at Cheltenham this coming week too. We all get caught up in the atmosphere of the Festival.



KEYSTROKE (3.15pm Lady Wulfruna Stakes Listed)

It looks a strong and open renewal and my fella comes into this on the back of a narrow win at Kempton where he beat the hot favourite Cenotaph on his first start for the Stuart Williams yard. He was doing his best work towards the end of the race so hopefully will enjoy the extra furlong here. He’s twice won over the mile trip here so stamina won’t be an issue – and was only beaten a nose in this race back in 2017.

ALSVINDER (4.25pm)

I was aboard when he won last time out at Lingfield – it was a blanket finish and he’s been put up another couple of pounds which makes life harder in what looks a tougher race. He’s got a good draw in two though, so hopefully will put in another big run in a race that looks likely to be decided by fine margins.



On to Kempton tonight for the one ride on Lethal Lunch in this decent looking class 3 handicap. He was impressive when winning at Lingfield last time out on his all-weather debut and has been given a break by Clive (Cox) since that start in September having also been gelded. He’s also up 7lb in the weights but he’s a nice horse who hopefully has some further improvement and hopefully we can play a big part in this open race.

Good luck
