Regency Red gets the vote over Le Corvee, with Wait For The Will and Agilete other leading players. Regency Red does not win too often these days but captured an amateurs' selling contest at Wolverhampton nine days ago under today's pilot, and as this is little better, he need not improve much to follow up. Le Corvee won another leg of this series at Newmarket before finishing third over hurdles at Newton Abbot, and is another that should go well despite a rise in the weights. Wait For The Will ran well in defeat at headquarters last time, but it must be pointed out that she has not won on Turf for three years, while Agilete has struggled in this grade of late. Bets should be kept to the bare minimum, with just a small vote of confidence going to Regency Red.
