WAVING has been brilliantly placed by Tony Carroll to complete a four-timer in just 18 days. All six of his career victories have been on Polytrack and he can continue the sequence under Joseph O'Brien. Armed Guard scored here under Chris Hayes from Juara last month and his two subsequent defeats have been with an apprentice in the saddle. The runner-up is better off at the weights and consistent enough to make his presence felt. Boxer Beat is much better known as a chaser these days but hasn't run since Aintree in October and has never won in 24 starts on the Flat. Horsewithnoname went up 14lb for his very easy victory in January but wasn't beaten far in his latest start from his new mark.
