Foxy in the Hunt for Honours at Kempton

Article excerpt

FEELIN FOXY can use all of her cunning to pocket a reasonable prize at Kempton tomorrow. James Given's mare is something of a sharp-shooter over the minimum trip, as illustrated by her taking Wolverhampton success in October.

Although unable to double up at Southwell earlier this month, she still turned in a spirited display to take fourth - especially given her unfavourable draw. Feelin Foxy competes off the same mark in the boxingdayraces.co.uk Handicap, and looks the sort who could make hay this winter.

Viper makes an intriguing return to the track in the digibet Casino Handicap.

Reg Hollinshead's hardy stayer was quietly fancied in some quarters for the Cesarewitch, but burst a blood vessel at Newmarket and trailed home last.

Seemingly recovered from that setback, Viper is likely to prove too streetwise for his rivals in this two-mile test.

Whistleinthewind can set the record straight when he returns to Lingfield for the EBF Maiden Stakes.

Gary Moore's juvenile failed to consolidate upon an encouraging debut run at Bath - he was a fast-finishing second to a Godolphin hotpot - when sent to the Surrey track earlier this month.

Despite his short price, Whistleinthewind did not pick up when asked and could only finish third.

He showed traits of greeness that day, however, which could well have been ironed out on his third racecourse foray. Moore's son of Oratorio has a most progressive profile and is clearly better than his most recent disappointment.

Moleskin looks a shoo-in at Chepstow. Victor Dartnall's six-year-old impressed at Exeter earlier this month and can follow up in the Crown At Whitebrook Novices' Hurdle.

Despite idling on the run-in, a solid round of jumping on soft ground ensured he had the decent Watamu Bay well cooked.

And although this assignment looks tougher, Dartnall's lightly-raced gelding has clearly improved from last term.

Given his propensity for soft ground, Moleskin must go close.

Clyffe Hanger can be rewarded for his consistency by taking the Weatherbys Bloodstock Insurance Handicap Hurdle.

The nine-year-old gelding has finished in the money on three starts this term but, incredulously, has not tasted success since November 2005. …
