Eminent wins fastest Craven in over 50 yearsPosted on Friday 21st April 2017 @ 09.34

Eminent established himself as a leading contender for the 2000 Guineas by winning the fastest Craven Stakes in more than 50 years.

The undefeated son of Frankel strode clear of his rivals to land the Group Three race on the Rowley Mile and is now a best-priced 8/1 (trimmed from 33/1) with most firms for the May classic.

Trained by Martyn Meade, Eminent was picked up for a relatively inexpensive 150,000gns, having gone through the Tattersalls sales ring unsold.

The three-year-old colt put his giant stride to use as he got the better of the Racing Post Trophy winner Rivet in the final two furlongs to win by a length-and-three-quarters.

"It's tremendously significant for me," said a delighted Meade. "This is what we've been waiting six months for, it's the beginning. Did the bubble burst? No, it's still alive. It couldn't be better."

Meade revealed Eminent had not been fully primed for this outing and expects him to take improvement from it, with the relatively short turnaround for the Guineas being no concern.

"He was not 100 per cent," added the local trainer. "He was fit enough but I didn't want to overdo him, it's a trial after all. Today he's proved he can do it with the good horses. I think he'll most likely stay further, too."
