Kempton best each-way bet: Masqool can challenge market leaders at tasty odds
If the bookies have done their homework correctly, then ten of the dozen runners are here to make the numbers up, but a top-heavy market can also open the door for each-way value elsewhere.

It can’t be denied that the stand-out market leaders Wadacre Gomez and Born Leader both boast the pedigree and the form to go well here under Franny Norton and Luke Morris respectively.
However, if tossing a coin for either of those 2/1 and 9/4 shots doesn’t float your betting boat, then our partners at Tipstrr have nudged the each-way door ajar to see what value is on offer lower down the market.
Down To The Kid has attracted plenty of attention ahead of his stable debut for Alice Haynes, although he has produced a few disappointing efforts since last tasting success over this course and distance in June.
Most popular pick, however, and consequently our best each-way bet for this race, is the James Evans-trained Masqool, who has been lightly raced since a busy spring schedule that landed an all-weather win at Lingfield, and a turf success in heavy going at Nottingham, both over 10 furlongs.
This five-year-old gelding also won around this track, albeit over a shorter one-mile trip, last October, and he recently emerged from an 80-day break by securing a respectable fourth spot (two lengths off the winner) over ten furlongs at Chelmsford three weeks ago.
If that outing helped blow away the cobwebs, then it could well prove to be a launching pad for more success, and although still carrying a top-weighted mark, the seven-pound allowance of regular jockey Joe Leavy could prove to be a decisive factor this slightly lower-grade company
Suggested bet: Masqool each-way in the 19:15 at Kempton
