2.05 Kempton, Monday, November 27

In the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle (2.05) at Kempton on Monday, Colin’s Sister carries a 6lb penalty for winning the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby earlier this month, but the form of that race looks increasingly strong. The runner-up, Wholestone, had previously finished just a length behind Saturday’s wide margin winner, Sam Spinner, who was receiving 9lb, in the Totesport Silver Trophy at Chepstow and the third, Lil Rockerfeller, won the Ascot Hurdle on Saturday.

Fergal O’Brien’s 6-year-old won four times at distances between 2 miles 3 furlongs and 2 miles 5 furlongs last season, but looked better than ever when stepped up to 3 miles for the first time at Wetherby and is entitled to improve again on just her second run since February. The Central Park mare has recorded four of her five career wins on soft going so, with the going at Kempton already good to soft and rain forecast for Sunbury-on-Thames on Sunday and Monday, she could well have her perfect conditions. She’s also won on good going, in any case, so she should run her race whatever the weather in South East England between now and Monday afternoon.

Selection: Kempton 2.05 Colin’s Sister to win
Update: There was a mix up on the Sporting Life site which led to them leaving up all early declarations, as such Colin's Sister isn't actually running. Sorry about that!
