While You Wait only won a seller at Exeter last month but still looks the best of his trainer's two runners. He had Al Amaan behind at Fontwell subsequently but has a bit to find with both Hermosa Vaquera and JUICY LEGEND on that latter run. The latter is tried in a visor today and may just come out on top this time and open his account. Walter De La Mare is consistent enough at this level but gets no respite from the handicapper. Poetic Power is inconsistent but has the past form to figure if in the mood.
