Kempton Park hosts a seven race card tonight that offers a great chance for Plum Bay to make a rapid return to the winner’s circle.

The David Elsworth trained filly landed a Class 5 over six furlongs at Newmarket at her penultimate start, before finishing runner-up here in a similar contest 17 days ago.

Tonight’s Class 6 mile at 18.50 represents a drop in class and she is fancied to prevail under jockey Dane O’Neill at odds of 4-1.

Intimidate is another last start runner up who is taken to go one better this evening. The Royal Applause colt stuck to his task well when finishing second to a Richard Hannon trained newcomer at Newbury two weeks ago and is taken to go in at 2-1 in the 19.20 race.

In the next race, a Class 5 over 11 furlongs, it may be worth taking a chance with the Sir Henry Cecil trained Tiger Cliff to beat his shorter priced rivals.

The three-year-old ran on well to finish second on his debut at Lingfield where he was ridden by Ian Mongan who is aboard again tonight. The step up in trip should suit.

Later, the Saeed Bin Suroor trained Royal Empire is expected to have too many guns for his rivals in the feature race of the evening, a Class 3 mile scheduled for 20.50.

The son of Teofilo won on his debut at Lingfield last month, before finishing a one and a quarter length third in a Class 3 at Sandown at his next start under Frankie Dettori, who has retained the ride.
