Verdict

While You Wait had appeared on the upgrade prior to blotting his copy-book at Kempton so it's a bit of a surprise to see him in a claimer. He must have a chance despite meeting Baccalaureate and course and distance winner Edlomond on worse terms than he would were this a handicap. The latter arrives off the back of a recent win in a Fakenham seller but Jacks Grey hasn't raced since last July. LION ON THE PROWL fell in a hunter chase at Fakenham back under Rules last month but that should have blown away a few cobwebs. Once rated 134 over hurdles, it's interesting that A P McCoy takes over the reins here and he could outstay these if there is a decent pace.
