Kenilworth Wednesday tips and race previews by Warren Lenferna

PUBLISHED: 27 June 2017

Race 1
Preview: CASUAL DIAMOND won very well last time and judging by the riding engagements seems to be the right one here of the Snaith duo. LACERTA was superbly ridden by Brandon May last time and she won nicely beating Queen Of Alamo – her chances again look bright. The Snaith stable could run one – two here. NAMIBIA won well on debut but followed that up with a below par effort next time – she can be forgiven that and can get into the action. (Warren Lenferna 1-2-3)

Race 2
Preview: COT CAMPBELL is beautifully bred and ran a fair race on debut. He was less than three lengths off the winner and has more than likely come on a ton from that run – if any of the first timers are not too strong then this Justin Snaith trained son of Trippi could be a hard horse to beat. FOOL PROOF ran second at long odds on debut and can only improve from that. He is a serious runner here. SIBERIAN HUSKY ran well first time at school and with natural improvement should be able to earn money today. Keep an eye on the betting and comments with regards to the first timers. (Warren Lenferna 3-7-13)

Race 3
Preview: LADY LI LAY ran on over the mile last time and should do even better today. BRIDAL PARTY ran second – ahead of Lady Li Lay in the race won by Riverboat Queen and has a very big winning chance here. LE CLAIRE returns from a rest and if not in too much need of this run could certainly run a place and must be included in the quartet. (Warren Lenferna 8-2-1)

Race 4
Preview: TRIPPLE EXPLOSION has a deep draw to overcome but is coming to hand now. He has run second in his last two starts and now looks ready and overdue his maiden victory. REDEEMER returns from a rest and gelding and he should be able to run very close – his stable is in red hot form and this son of Captain Al should run very well as a gelding. His form before the gelding was good. LEADMAN from the stable mate to Redeemer, has shown in his last two that his winning turn is not far away and it would be silly to ignore his chances for the quartet. (Warren Lenferna 1-2-3)

Race 5
Preview: COCK-A-HOOP returns from a fairly lengthy rest and gelding. He has shown ability and ran a very close up second last time when leading and getting caught in the shadow of the post. Provided he is fit and not in too much need of this comeback run he could be very hard to beat. NASTY HARRY has won two out of his last three and is clearly useful – he has a chance. GADGET MAN came from far off the pace last time to run fourth first time out the maidens which is very encouraging – respect. (Warren Lenferna 1-4-9)

Race 6
Preview: SEATTLE OAK showed good pace last time and was only caught very close to home. She has confidently been selected to go one better today. TRIP THE WILLOW is much better than her last run shows when never in the race – she can do much better and feature in the shake up. She more than likely was in need of her comeback run. STATE BALLET is in fine form and searching for the hat trick – if she won again, it would be no shock at all. (Warren Lenferna 2-3-4)

Race 7
Preview: MOUNT KEITH is knocking loudly at the door having run second in his last two and now looks ready to score his second career win. SUNSET EYES is coming back to form since his bad run a few starts ago and must be given the utmost respect here. CABALLO BLANCO returns from a short rest but has the form to be very competitive. (Warren Lenferna 4-3-5)

Race 8
Preview: OFF BROADWAY ran on late last time to record his third second in a row – he looks to be hard to beat today – whatever beats him will win! SIR CLIFF caught the eye on debut and can improve to go very close. SILVER DE LANGE is nicely bred and could do well first time at the races – watch the betting and the trainers comments.
