8.30 Kempton - Smith (E/W)
So I went with a Lydia Richards runner midweek, and I'm going to go with a Lydia Richards runner on Friday. I really like the look here of Smith (each-way).
Some recent, creditable third place finishes over at Chelmsford recently, there's a step up in trip today, I don't think that though will worry anyone.
Now there's a lot of focus, maybe fairly, on Mustang Kodi to get this one won. I don't see it myself, up in trip this time and had to hold on for victory last time around. I think you can oppose the likely favourite.
Smith looks great value here, keeps getting in there, but I'm not going to play Smith to win outright. Each-way is likely to get you a very good price.
