Prussian power can reign supreme at Kempton

PRUSSIAN can claim the £32 Free At 32Red.com Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Kempton tomorrow.

The daughter of Dubai Destination is related to a clutch of winners and came very close to making the perfect start to her career at Lingfield earlier this month.

Having run green, Prussian was making up ground hand over fist in the final furlong and only failed to get up by a head. With normal improvement, she should be extremely difficult to beat this time.

Veroon remains capable of winning off his current mark and has a good opportunity to do just that in the 32RedBet.com Handicap.

The six-year-old has won and been placed three times round this track and is just 1lb higher than when scoring here in October.

He ran well over course and distance on his latest start, coming from a long way back to finish fourth and he should be involved in the finish again.

A strong pace would seriously aid his cause.

It will be a big shock if Derivatives does not finally find the target in the Bet At Blue Square Maiden Stakes at Southwell.

The three-year-old filly is clearly not one of John Gosden's leading lights, but she has run some fair races in defeat, most notably when third in France a couple of starts back.

She looked a little one-paced when third again at Kempton recently, but this track might suit her a little better and connections could not have found her an easier maiden in which to open her account.

Even Stevens has been victorious on six of his seven starts at Southwell and can continue his rise through the ranks in the Download The Blue Square Bet App Handicap.

Smart bumper performer Baby Shine makes her first start over timber in the European Breeders' Fund Mares' “National Hunt” Novices' Hurdle at Leicester.

The six-year-old should not have too many problems with the jumping game given she is a point-to-point winner.

If you take her fitness on trust, she must have every chance of making a winning start to her new career.
