Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kempton on Wednesday evening...

"Raised just 3 lb for that, it would be folly to discount her in this considering that she's still on the up and lightly raced at this trip."

Timeform on Chloellie

Chloellie - Kempton 18:15

Chloellie has been in fine form over the past six months or so, winning four of her last five starts, and she proved better than ever to complete a double over C&D last month, making smooth headway three furlongs out before staying on to lead inside the final 50 yards. Raised just 3 lb for that, it would be folly to discount her in this considering that she's still on the up and lightly raced at this trip. The ultra-consistent Chica de La Noche is likely to provide the biggest test, while recent scorer Rippling Waters is another to consider.

Rich Approach - Kempton 18:45

Rich Approach has benefited for the switch to nurseries, winning two of his last three starts, and he got back on the up when returning to winning ways over a furlong shorter at Newcastle last time, winning in the manner of one who was a long way ahead of his mark. He's been raised 7 lb for that, but it would be disappointing should be fail to play a big part in this, and he's a confident selection to follow up. My Dear Friend was a good second on his handicap bow/return over this C&D and can improve again, while Sir Ox is another to consider as he goes for the hat-trick under a penalty.

Ventura Blues - Kempton 19:15

Ventura Blues caught the eye when fourth at Wolverhampton on her first start for Alexandra Dunn last month, running as well as could be expected from 4 lb out of the handicap at a much higher level, and unlucky not to finish closer having met trouble on two occasions. Returned to calmer waters here, she can resume winning ways from what looks an attractive mark. Espresso Freddo and Glory of Paris rate the likeliest dangers.
