Raj tops Kempton weights

Rajdhani Express has been left at the head of the field for Saturday's BetBright Chase at Kempton.

The likes of original top-weights Menorah and Captain Chris along with ante-post favourite Hadrian's Approach, Triolo D'Alene and Rocky Creek have been taken out, leaving the Nicky Henderson-trained Rajdhani Express at the top of the list, with the weights set for a hefty rise.

He is the only Henderson contender, with title rival Paul Nicholls having three strings to his bow at present with Bury Parade, Grandioso and Jump City.

Planet Of Sound could represent Philip Hobbs in the three-mile contest, while Alan King might be double-handed with Bless The Wings and Midnight Appeal.

Venetia Williams landed the feature event at Haydock last Saturday and she could try for another big-race success with Niceonefrankie.

Whats Happening, Bally Legend, Ardkilly Witness, Standing Ovation, Baile Anrai and Tour Des Champs complete the list of 14 contenders.
