Richard Hannon has four entries and with Richard Hughes on board ANTICIPATED, he's likely to come out best of the quartet, especially after his tremendous victory over Justice Day over the course and distance last month. He's given the nod in an incredibly difficult renewal in which the USA raider Ogermeister, who represents Wesley Ward, successful with Strike A Tiger in 2009, has to be of interest. The progressive Wilshire Boulevard makes a quick reappearance after his victory at Navan on Friday and wouldn't be here unless thought capable of winning while Fine 'n Dandy won a Chester maiden by 8l and with further progress likely can go well at a fair price. My Catch ran a cracking race on his debut at Beverley where Supplicant was just behind and it would be no surprise to see the pair involved in the finish.
