While You Wait has been threatening to get his head in front of late and drops back in trip after a second at Lingfield. NO SUCH NUMBER has also been thereabouts recently including a third under today's rider at Windsor and he gets a speculative vote. Swift Blade has a shout on his earlier placed effort at the same track while Saint Helena may also figure. Nordic Quest has slipped down the weights and gets one of the leading amateurs on board for this.
