In recent meetings the all weather polytrack going at Kempton Park has been described as standard to slow, and that proved against the liking of Sheila's Showcase on Monday afternoon. Under Charlie Bishop he overcame a wide draw quite well, to move forward into good position by halfway, but into the last three furlongs he was not able to quicken up as he can, and ultimately he lost a few places inside the final furlong to finish eighth, beaten seven lengths.

To close the month Denis sends two up to Kempton Park this evening to run on the polytrack. In the 6.10 1 mile handicap Keeper's Choice switches back to one mile following her freshen up in a hurdling escapade, and Charlie Bishop takes the ride in a fourteen runner race. At 6.40 Rockstar Max makes his second course appearance in a seven furlong novice race, with Melbourne 10's regular pilot Dougie Costello taking change of him - drawn 4 in a seven runner race.

With the splendid pedigree by Hit It A Bomb out of a mare called Thewholeshebang, Denis purchased another yearling colt with great promise. The sire was a triple winner at two for Aidan O'Brien, including the Breeders Cup juvenile turf at Keeneland in 2015. The dam was herself unraced, but she is from a line of many US Group and Listed winners from the Shot Gun dynasty of successful race mares.
