The feature race of the day is the Listed two miles Racing TV Hurdle and Verdana Blue for Nicky Henderson is the class angle.
The eight year old had suffered a slight setback which ruled her out for the end of the flat season with her supposed to have ran in the Cesarewitch, but with the good ground coming at Kempton she steps back over hurdles.
The mare was previously owned by Crimbourne Bloodstock but recently changed hands for £370,000, and is now owned by Michael Tabor’s wife, Doreen.
The mare has had an elusive career, as back in 2019 she managed to land the Grade One Christmas Hurdle at Kempton inflicting a first defeat in 12 on stablemate Buveur D’Air.
She also landed the Scottish Champion hurdle that year on her penultimate start before trying her hand on the flat when fourth in the Sagaro Stakes behind Dee Ex Bee who was second in the 2019 Ascot Gold Cup.
Since then she has predominantly been tried on the flat and this season she has been seen twice finishing a good second in the Ascot Stakes at the royal meeting and then last time out another bright third in the York Ebor Handicap.
