Our website tipster shares his three fancies from Wetherby and Kempton on Wednesday. Enjoy all the action from Dundalk, too, and 24 live contests in total live on Racing TV.

3.12 Wetherby: Destinee Royale at 7-2 with William Hill

Backed off the boards on her reappearance at Sandown, she over-jumped and unseated halfway around, leaving her supporters cursing. She was going well enough - with a fair way still to go - to think the gamble might have been landed and hopefully she can make amends here.

She got round on her latest run and that was in a Listed mares’ event, proving her competence as a jumper and giving her valuable experience.

Her handicap mark has not changed this season and I think she is more than fairly-weighted, despite being 9lb higher than when bolting up at Market Rasen last term. Trip and ground are no issue and trainer Venetia Williams remains in extremely good form.

5.15 Kempton: Premier Power at 9-4 with William Hill

He finished sixth last time when a well-backed favourite in a similarly high-level handicap, but he was beaten less than a length in a desperately tight finish and I am prepared to forgive him.

He is 4lb better off with Brian The Snail for a couple of cigarette papers and that should be enough to reverse that form. The two were separated by a nose on their previous meeting as well and Premier Power is also 5lb better off for that run, so the handicapper seems determined to give him his chance to turn the tables on his old rival.

May Sonic should set a good pace and I feel that could be the key for Premier Power, who sometimes races a little too free early in his races.

7.20 Kempton: Stormbomber at 4-1 with William Hill

He looks to be a horse hitting top form, and in a race where most of the opposition have been disappointing of late.

Dropped down to a rating 7lb lower than his last winning mark, he ran a really good race to finish fourth over 10f at Lingfield last time. I feel with the cheekpieces tried again and this drop in distance, he could be an interesting runner here.

Trainer Michael Madgwick has not yet had a winner this year, but recent runners have performed well at prices and this could be the one to break his duck for 2021.
