Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kempton on Monday evening…
“…he is taken to get back to winning ways for the Marco Botti yard that won this race with Grendisar in 2014…”
Timeform on Crowned Eagle
Second on his penultimate outing over seven furlongs here, SKYDIVING was on the same mark and again ran well when filling the same position over C&D 10 days ago, unlucky not to score having conceded first run to the winner. He clearly goes well on the all-weather and, still potentially well treated from just 2 lb higher here, everything looks set fair for another big run, especially with the Eve Johnson Houghton yard continuing in top form at present.
CROWNED EAGLE bagged a handicap at this course earlier this year and has acquitted himself well in better company since, showing himself to be a smart performer with a good second in a Group 3 in Sweden last time. That form leaves him 4 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here and he is taken to get back to winning ways for the Marco Botti yard that won this race with Grendisar in 2014, with Atty Persse and Architecture making most appeal of the remainder.
RAKEMATIZ has looked better than ever in recent starts, following his Wolverhampton win with a good second from 6 lb higher at Chelmsford last time, and could be the answer to a tricky-looking finale, with the promising Cieren Fallon taking 5 lb off his back. Broad Appeal, who arrives here on the back of a creditable second at Leicester, and Enmeshing are others to consider.
