Coral’s bet of the day
- Chookie Royale has won his last two races at Kempton
- Keith Dalgleish gelding has made the frame from five of six starts at venue
- Selection drops in class from last seven all-weather outings
Chookie Royale odds the pick of Kempton all-weather tips
Keith Dalgleish’s Chookie Royale loves racing on the all-weather at Kempton, so Coral tipsters have no hesitation in making him to win the 6f conditions stakes this evening (19:50) our bet of the day for October 5th.
The eight-year-old gelding has a 50 per cent strike rate from six races at the Sunbury-on-Thames venue. These include winning his previous two outings and the last being over tonight’s distance.
Also finishing runner-up twice, Chookie Royale odds have been cut overnight, meaning punters are already piling on him to perform again.
Ignore Doncaster turf outing
Although finishing last of 16 in a 7f handicap at Doncaster when previously seen in action, that race came on the turf. Returning to an all-weather surface around a course that clearly brings the best out of Chookie Royale is sure to suit.
Dalgleish has also opted to rest the selection since that July outing. That near three-month break will have freshened him up.
A look through Chookie Royale’s career profile shows punters that his best performances tend to come between October and March.
Drop in both weight and class
He also gets into this contest with half a stone less in the saddlebags to that Doncaster outing. The selection should be able to shoulder 9st 7lb here, having won with heavier weight on board before.
Chookie Royale’s younger race rivals Taneen and Lord Of The Land have no course and distance experience, which only serves to make this punt even more appealing.
Dropping back down to class 3 opposition will also make things easier. This race thus looks the ideal opportunity for Dalgleish’s charge to return to winning ways.
