Not too many in good form of late so an appealing opportunity for WAIT NO MORE to follow up an easy Ffos Las success last Sunday and defy a 7lb penalty. He was clear from some way out that day and looks the one to beat providing the ground doesn't turn worse than the good to soft forecast conditions. Charles would be one to note at his best but he's been strangely muted on both starts this year and Musical Wedge makes greater appeal as the prime danger off topweight. He's a genuine and consistent handicapper for Claire Dyson and would not be inconvenienced by any further deterioration in the ground.
