WE USED TO WAIT has improved with every start and further progress is expected on her handicap bow. A close-up fourth at Wolverhampton last time, her breeding suggests she'll relish today's extra distance and the competition is modest to say the least. Taqaat looked to have slipped to a decent mark before running a shocker last time and Rodrigo De Freitas has failed to figure off higher marks since scoring at Folkestone in June. Bramshill Lass has bits of form over 1m2f that could see her figure but it's difficult to make a case for any of the remainder.
