See The Sea looks ripe for a four-timer in the Join Racing TV Now Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle (3.25) at Kempton Park.
Donald McCain is operating at a strike-rate of one in four during the past couple of weeks and See The Sea, like his trainer, is in red-hot form.
Having returned to winning form over in a handicap hurdle at Ludlow in October, the son of Born To Sea followed up at Wincanton eight days later.
And my selection racked up the hat-trick with a five-and-a-half-length call over Glory And Honour at Taunton last time out.
There is a 7lb rise in the handicap for the top weight to deal with, but Peter Kavanagh’s 8lb claim here will come in very handy and See The Sea is fancied to go in again.
Racing takes place at Kempton on Monday
A first attempt at two miles should help ATALANTA BREEZE gain a second success of 2021 as Marcus Tregoning’s mare takes on five opponents for the chelmsfordcityracecourse.com Handicap (5.00).
A mile and three-quarters proved within range when the daughter of Champs Elysees beat Angel On High by half a length and Wolverhampton two starts ago.
Atalanta Breeze stayed on well to the finish over the same course and distance when second to Lindwall at the end of September and is fancied to hit the bullseye on her return from a 60-day absence.
