Day Of Conquest went close on his reappearance at Goodwood and Cam Hardie's allowance helps his cause in this. Invincible Fresh won a handicap at Doncaster over 7f last time but course and distance winner Dream Spirit may improve past him. Crowdmania looks up against it but should set a decent pace which will suit MAVERICK WAVE. A ready winner of both starts to date including at Lingfield on his return to action, he has yet to be asked a serious question and gets the vote.
