Verdict

While You Wait only won a novices' seller at Exeter last month and has been raised 3lb for his troubles. Al Amaan carries a penalty after ending an 18-race barren spell over hurdles at Plumpton while Mighty Mambo's early-season promise has evaporated. Windpfeil won over track and trip last May but there has been little encouragement in more recent efforts. NICKY NUTJOB looks a decent option back in this grade as he was racing off a 10lb higher mark when second over a longer trip here in the autumn. Juicy Legend has been a bit more consistent lately and is probably the pick of the remainder.
