Verdict

The lightly-raced CLEAR PRAISE has shown good progress and won two of his last four starts both over C&D. He hasn't stopped improving yet and looks capable of winning again off his current mark. Best Trip has also been in fine form here this year and scored over the minimum trip last time, but Elhamri and Punching have been doing their recent winning on the Fibresand at Southwell. Shifting Star went close here in November and makes most appeal of the remainder on his reappearance.
