BE ASHORED was denied a good-looking chance at Worcester last week when the weather intervened but this looks another good opportunity for Tim Vaughan's chaser. He stayed on at one pace last time behind the improving Ballybough Gorta and now drops over half a mile in trip, so an aggressive ride is anticipated by Richie Killoran in a contest likely to be run at a cracking gallop with My Condor also engaged. Wait No More has been in good form and conditions will suit but he may just find this trip a little sharp off 11-11. Frith is solid enough in this grade and inhabits an attractive mark on this return from a short break.
