Wednesday 26th November Wild Flower Listed Stakes

Two All Weather cards on Wednesday with feature race being Wild Flower listed Stakes at Kempton over 12 furlongs .

10 runners declared for good quality listed race over 12 furlongs on poly track .On official ratings we have three main contenders Grendisar ,Harris Tweed,Rawaki.Plus dark horse Kalaatah 

GRENDISAR :Poly track specialist, with excellent record here at Kempton (12213212) winning three times over C&D .Won the floodlit listed stakes at Kempton earlier this month beating Fire Fighting by neck .Very consistent sort and looks sure go well at his favourite track .

HARRIS TWEED :Useful sort on turf ,winning 7 from 26 ,including winning three listed races and group three ,however hasn't looked as good this season,though did finish second in class 2 handicap at Leicester off mark 105 last time .Lightly raced on poly track ,though has never convinced in four starts,  finishing well  beaten third in this race in 2012 .

RAWAKI :Steady improvement this season in group and listed company ,including finishing third in G3 John Porter stakes at Newbury & finishing close second in Listed handicap at Musselburgh off mark 103 .Won 14 furlong conditions race at Salisbury in September  beating Aussie Reigns in good style .Ran well on both starts on poly track back 2011/12 

KALAATAH :Unbeaten filly winning both starts on poly track ,including winning maiden over C&D on debut .Won 12 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton last time off mark 81 .Looks open to plenty improvement after 2 starts ,though takes big step up in class .

VERDICT :The lightly raced 3-Y-0 filly Kalaatah is not easy to assess ,receiving plenty of weight of her main rivals ,though has been put in very short here for horse that only won class 4 handicap .Will need to improve around 15LB too take this listed contest and makes little appeal at 15-8 .

Course specialist GRENDISAR looks the one to beat here ,after winning similar race last time over course and distance .Should come on for that run ,first run since April .Has excellent record here at Kempton and can concede weight all round .Odds around 9-2 look very decent each-way value . 

Of the others Rawaki has each-way claims on the pick of his turf form this season in group company,though is not easiest horse to win with .
