Tomily and A Momentofmadness renew rivalry

The betting market is dominated by Tomily and A Momentofmadness, first and third at Lingfield last month. Neither horse was quickly away that day but it was Tomily who found the better turn of foot to beat Encore D’Or by half a length. A Momentofmadness was only a head away in third and now enjoys a 5lbs pull in the weights with the winner.

Tomily went on to beat Udontdodou over six furlongs at Kempton, being driven into the lead a furlong out and holding on narrowly. Hollie Doyle gets on particularly well with the four-year-old who is trained by Richard Hannon.

A Momentofmadness will be ridden by William Buick who will need to be at his best to get the gelding home in front. The son of Elnadim has only two victories from seventeen career starts. He is one of the fastest sprint handicappers in training, finishing a close fourth in the Epsom Dash last summer. He also went very close at Goodwood so has top level form on two of the fastest tracks in the country.

Evergate has room for improvement

Compas Scoobie finished runner-up to Tropics at Chelmsford last month for Stuart Williams. That was only his second run in a visor and he races in the same colours as Jumira Bridge. The latter has recently joined Robert Cowell from Roger Varian’s stable. Cowell has a great reputation with sprinters and it would be no surprise to an improvement in form. He won a Sandown handicap in April last year off a mark of 88 and is now rated 9lbs higher.

Cowell also runs Evergate and Green Door. Evergate is a four-year-old gelding with two victories from thirteen races. His last run was at Ascot in October when second to Erissimus Maximus. He still has scope for improvement and should be winning handicaps in due course. Green Door has drawn the inside stall and will be having his first run since November. His record strongly suggests that he needs a race to put him straight after a lengthy absence.

Two horses neck and neck at the Kempton track

Tarboosh is a five-year-old gelding trained by Paul Midgley. He finished a close third to Boundsy at Haydock in heavy ground back in September. He won on his racecourse debut here in 2016 but has struggled in subsequent appearances on the all-weather.

George Dryden is a six-year-old gelding by Zebedee trained by Charlie Wallis. The grey finished last of six behind Tomily at Lingfield, fading in the closing stages. He had previously finished a fair third to Encore D’Or at the same track. Bowson Fred will be sharper for his run behind Orvar at Wolverhampton in February. You have to go back to June 2016 for his last success but he is on a reasonable handicap mark and should find a winning opportunity in the coming weeks.
