Clear Praise to pounce late ?

The 8.05 Racing at SkySports.Com Handicap has attracted a decent field at Kempton on Wednesday night and the recent scorer Clear Praise could be the one to be on given the manner of his win here last time out in what was good time. Selected as an All Weather horse to follow after that run he is reunited with Hayley Turner for this Class 4 Handicap for which he has been raised 6lb to 81 but he could be ahead of the handicapper for a while longer yet as he is considered to be an exciting prospect by his trainer.

However these handicaps have to be won as they wont be given on a plate and there are some others of interest namely Sioux Rising, Jack Rackham and Ebraam.
Sioux Rising has been running consistently on the Polytrack and she was only beaten a head last time out at Lingfield behind Anne of Kiev and Five Star Junior in a Class 3, with the latter winning another Class 3 Handicap last Saturday off a 1lb higher mark she is likely to be in the thick of things once again and is switched back to cheek pieces on this her first visit to Kempton.
Jack Rackham is no spring chicken but he hasnt got many races on the clock and he is reasonably handicapped on the best of his form and Ebraam is another who likes the Polytrack.

In conclusion Clear Praise looks to be on the up and granted luck in running she is up to winning this.

If you havent checked out the clip of Black Caviar (previous post) winning in Australia at the weekend then please do so as it is a race to savour for serious racing enthusiasts.
