Kempton Park was a bright and sunny 17c on Monday afternoon, giving spectators a fantastic May Day to savour. The outstanding conditions ensured that the going was good across the track.
Rock N Rhythm started the day by winning the 13:30 Novices Hurdle as favourite at 4/5. Art Mauresque made it two-in-a-row for the favourites by winning the 14:00 Novices Chase at 11/10. West Wizard then completed the trifecta by triumphing as 4/6 favourite in the 14:35 Novices Hurdle.
The pattern of favourites would soon be broken, however. In the 15:10 Handicap Chase, Champion Court emerged as the victor at 9/2. Urcalin then claimed the 15:45 Handicap Hurdle at 7/1.
Claret Cloak took spectators into the final stretch of UK horse racing results yesterday by winning the 16:20 Handicap Chase at 9/2. Mr Lando kept the favourites out yet again by winning at 3/1 in the 16:50 Handicap Hurdle.
