Verdict

It wasn't that long ago that Crowned Eagle was deemed good enough to warrant a tilt at the Derby, so he could prove a cut above back in a handicap but there is enough of a doubt about him to take him on, with FIRST NATION a viable alternative. Charlie Appleby's colt has been holding his own in some deeper handicaps than this and the return to 1m2f could see him resume winning ways. Conversely, the step up in trip should see City of Joy in a better light and he also merits consideration.
  1. First Nation
  2. City Of Joy
  3. Crowned Eagle
