The 2m handicap hurdle for conditional jockeys that opens the Kempton card (1.10pm) looks tricky to say the least, but there are grounds for thinking the Nick Williams-trained SKY LINO is well treated on what he’s shown in three runs in juvenile company. The four-year-old was admittedly beaten a far way into third behind a couple of good sorts on his debut at Chepstow but that was still a promising effort, and he stepped up on that when chasing home Sikandar at Bangor next time out, despite having run loose for about one mile beforehand.

That suggests he’s not entirely straightforward and he does need excusing a poor display on his latest start at Cheltenham in December, when trailing home in fourth of the five runners. But something was clearly amiss that day and having been given a good break since, he should do better now he steps into handicap company for the first time off what is potentially a lenient mark of 113, with Lizzie Kelly taking 3lb off. What’s more the stable does well with it’s runners here, boasting a strike rate of 28% (5-18) for a level-stakes profit of £11.88.
