Tym to take Kempton glory.

Byline: ARGUS

TYMISMONI can gain redemption from a gamble which went awry at Kempton when she returns to the track at Lingfield.

Brett Johnson''s filly was earlier this month the subject of an almighty plunge on her handicap debut - and very nearly brought home the bacon.

She showed bags of toe under Kieren Fox and fairly flew home once the gaps appeared.

I t a l l unravelled quite spectacularly, however, as her rider''s whip snapped inside the final furlong, meaning Fox had to resort to handsand-heels nudging.

That undoubtedly cost her the race as she eventually went down by a nose to decent yardstick Shutterbug.

A 3lb penalty is perhaps a slight concern, but she remains one of the most progressive animals in the Cowden Handicap, such was her fluency at Kempton.

Round Won, meanwhile, can atone for a narrow reverse at the start of the month in the Exchange Price Multiples Handicap at Kempton.

William Knight''s four-yearold succumbed by just a nose over this course and distance when endeavouring to make all of the running.

The return to front-running tactics, which served him so well when victorious at Folkestone last April, clearly brought around an upturn in fortunes - as did the step back up in trip.

Round Won is clearly not straightforward, hence the need for a visor last time, but Knight has seemingly seen enough at home to dispense of the headgear on his occasion.

He remains teasingly weighted with just 1lb extra to shoulder in Sunbury, and should again be able to dictate the pace under the underappreciated Shane Kelly.
