Planet Sport tipster Pete Farries has a trio of fat picks for the Boxing Day action at Kempton, including the Christmas Hurdle and the King George VI Chase.

Here's a quick snapshot of Sunday's tips. Click on the horse's name to have a punt with Planet Sport Bet.

Ahoy Senor (13.55 Kempton)

Not So Sleepy (14.30 Kempton)

Lostintranslation (15.05 Kempton)

Pete is straight into the King George VI Chase action and he sees real value in an underrated Colin Tizzard runner who can communicate his talent loud and clear.

15.05 Kempton - Lostintranslation

Pete is steering clear of the obvious market leaders and spying some value with this Colin Tizzard runner who can spring a surprise at the business end of the three miles.

A very solid four lengths winner of the Chanelle Pharma last time out at Ascot, Lostintranslation has won over the three miles distance and on paper has everything in his locker to go well at Kempton.

Brendan Powell gets the leg up and here are just a couple of reasons why Pete has honed in on Lostintranslation.

"Roared back into good form at Ascot last time around in some Grade 2 Action. I was very, very impressed by that performance from Lostintranslation.

This was a horse that I fell in love with a couple of years ago at Cheltenham, beaten of course by Al Boum photo in the Gold Cup but still a horse that I think has got so much going for them. Nine years old now but still a beautiful horse and one of my favourites in the game…

I think that Lostintranslation, particularly each-way, could be a very good way to go and is my star pick for Sunday."

13.55 Kempton - Ahoy Senor

Ahoy Senor absolutely hosed up last time out at Newbury in the John Francome, winning by a superb 31 lengths and leaving the decent Mr Incredible and Flash Collonges strung out like washing on a line.

That win suggested Ahoy Senor might be in a different class, which the five-year-old will need to be to challenge Paul Nicholls' Bravemansgame.

Derek Fox takes the ride for Lucinda Russell and the following is a snippet of why Pete reckons that Ahoy Senor will leave this small field all at sea.

"There's not too many horses at the moment as good as today's pick for the next best in the Kauto Star and I'm going to go with Ahoy Senor who I think is going to be unbeaten in this race.

Looks a truly phenomenal runner for Lucinda Russell. Now Bravemansgame is the odd-on market favourite at the time of recording but don't forget, at Aintree back in April, while 66-1 Ahoy Senor defeated Bravemansgame and looked very good in doing so.

Yes, unseated a rider since then but also went on to win the John Francome by 31 lengths. Ahoy Senor is a phenomenal horse."

14.30 Kempton - Not So Sleepy

Epatante is the one to be shot at hear and Pete says that Not So Sleepy is the one to be alert to.

The nine-year-old put in a scintillating showing last time out at Newcastle to dead heat with Epatante, seven pounds and two years worse off than Nicky Henderson's hurdler.

Jonathan Burke takes the reins on Hughie Morrison's charge and here is a snapshot of why Pete thinks that age will come before beauty in this one.

"I think Not So Sleepy is a great shout, dead heated, of course, with Epatante, the market favourite in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle very recently indeed.

I think this horse looks constantly so strong, Tritonic was a really good winner actually, of course, only last week. I'm not sure with what was expended I'd want to stick with Tritonic this time around…

I think Not So Sleepy is the way to go, this horse is an absolute beauty and yes, up against a talented Epatante, it is going to be interesting. It may well even be tight but in this battle of what I think is going to be Epatante v Not So Sleepy, I'd rather go with the value of Not So Sleepy than the odds-on of Epatante."
