I’ve struggled to find anything I really like at the prices today, but it might be worth taking a chance on MOHATEM in the 1m3f handicap at Kempton (8.10).

Mohatem is obviously returning from a long absence so clearly has a bit to prove, but he kept good company in his four previous starts, winning a Newmarket maiden on his second outing, then contesting a traditionally competitive 3yo handicap at the Craven meeting before making no show in the London Gold Cup at Newbury.

He’s very much bred to be suited by this surface – his dam was runner-up in a Grade One event on Polytrack – and it’s interesting that he has been retained for so long by his owners.

This is a competitive event, and Charlie’s Mate (who unsurprisingly has been very well found in the market) has an obvious chance after recording a very fast time running into one last time, but Mohatem is completely unexposed on this surface and might be the type to flourish on it.
