14:25 Kempton– King’s Socks (BEST ODDS 13/2 with Ladbrokes)
I can’t wait to see how this horse gets on as he’s a supremely classy sort. The only question mark over him is his fitness, but even if he is 80% fit I can see him blowing the rest of this field away. On his last run he finished just two lengths behind Footpad in a Group 1, who is now favourite for the Arkle and looks one of the absolute bankers of the festival. He should handle the ground and it’s difficult to predict how his wind operation will affect him, but I’m willing to take a punt at the price.
