Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kempton on Tuesday evening…
“…is almost certainly capable of better still and he is the clear pick of these…”
Timeform on Purgatory
The return to this trip will suit Red Gunner, who put in good late work after encountering traffic problems when fifth over seven furlongs here last month. He remains well treated on peak form and is preferred to Pike Corner Cross, who is an obvious threat on the back of his recent C&D success. Magic Mirror landed this race 12 months ago and also needs considering.
Purgatory very much caught the eye when third over C&D on nursery debut a fortnight ago, putting in good late work from a compromising position. The son of Dark Angel is almost certainly capable of better still and he is the clear pick of these. In The Cove shaped as though the returning to this trip would be in his favour when fourth over seven furlongs here recently and is next best ahead of Kahina.
Sunday Prospect relished the step up to ten furlongs when opening his account at Leicester and this stiffer test could be the catalyst for further progress. Indeed, he still has low mileage and the booking of James King adds to his appeal. A winner of four of his six starts since switched to handicaps, Landue has to be feared and Take Two will also be a threat if fit enough to do himself justice.
