It’s a fantastic afternoon of racing action on Saturday, and Kempton’s Polytrack gets in on the act as they host the Group 3 September Stakes – won by no less than superstar filly Enable in two of the last three years!
It’s a seven-race Kempton card on Saturday afternoon from 1.00pm-4.25pm, and you can see it all via live streaming when logged into MansionBet – alongside all the UK and Irish racing action. We’ve got a race-by-race look at the Kempton card below.
1.00 – Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap (6f)
The hat-trick seeking Lilkian has bagged lesser races at Lingfield (6f) and Chelmsford (5f) over the last month and cannot be crossed off with certainly, but Darryll Holland’s charge is up another 3lb and facing a stern test now. Tyger Bay was rewarded for consistency with a decisive C&D score recently – his third career win over track and trip – but requires a personal best from this lofty new mark (up 8lb). HIGHFALUTING has twice placed over 7f here this summer in better races than this one. He should handle this drop in distance and is likely to give his running in a wide-open heat.

1.30 – Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Nursery (7f)
Roger Charlton’s NOISY NIGHT is now 2-2 on the all-weather (both here), having scored over C&D a month ago in a novice contest as he stepped up in distance. An opening mark of 83 could be within reach for the well-named Night Of Thunder colt, and he looks sure to keep progressing. Last month’s Newmarket handicap winner Neptune Legend had a stiff challenge since at York in a strong nursery and rates a significant danger under champion jockey Oisin Murphy now with sights lowered.
Selection: Noisy Night @
2.05 – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Sirenia Stakes (Group 3, 6f)
Nymphadora was a Listed winner on only her second start in May at York, and it’s probably best to view last month’s Lowther run back there as a positive one (fifth, fading late). She’s got claims – as do unbeaten Hierarchy for Hugo Palmer and David Loughnane’s Fearless Ange – but there was plenty to like about the debut C&D win of SCOT’S GRACE in July. The Mehmas filly was far too strong and recorded a good time. Kevin Philippart De Foy wastes no time upping her in class, and she may be good enough.
Selection: Scot’s Grace @
2.40 – Unibet September Stakes (Group 3, 1m4f)
He doesn’t have quite the class of Enable, but HUKUM is a smart sort in his own right, and he’s arriving here seeking a hat-trick of Group 3 victories after successes at York (1m6f) and Newbury (1m5½f) since early July. Those wins have been decisive in nature, and the strong-travelling son of Sea The Stars was a winner here in one AW run as a novice, so the surface holds no fears. Jim Crowley’s mount can make light of a 3lb penalty.
Selection: Hukum @
3.15 – Unibet London Mile Series Final Handicap (1m)
A real quality field assembled for the London Mile Final, and no surprise to see 4/1 the field when betting opened. The progressive Thunderclap has lots going for him, including Saffie Osborne’s 5lb claim, and is 2-2 over C&D. Crystal Casque, Thatian Prince and multiple C&D winner Fantasy Believer are possibles, but EXCEEDINGLY REGAL did it the hard way in front here 15 days ago, just repelling Star Catcher’s challenge, and from just 2lb higher he looks a contender again.
Selection: Exceedingly Regal @
3.50 – Unibet Casino Deposit 10 Get 40 Bonus Nursery (1m)
ASTAROTH got to the front going well at Ffos Las eight days ago under Saffie Osborne and was probably value for more than the winning margin, having hung left slightly after pulling clear. The Bated Breath colt is 4lb higher now, but he is improving of late and rising into Class 5 company may not halt that progress on a track where he can likely come with one strong, late run.
Selection: Astaroth @
4.25 – Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Handicap (1m)
The finale is certainly tough from a punting perspective, but the drop in class might work nicely for LOVE DREAMS. He came flying home over C&D 17 days ago and finished a never-nearer third. From an unchanged mark and with the excellent Thomas Greatrex taking 3lb off, compensation may be his.
Selection: Love Dreams @
