WAVING landed a maiden over the course and distance a year ago then completed a double in a Wolverhampton handicap off a mark of 70. He was down to 50 when scoring on a return visit to the midlands on Monday and, as that was an apprentice race, goes unpenalised. A quick double looks on the cards though Lisahane Bog, who was also in action on Monday when just failing to catch Graylyn Ruby at Kempton, is another who has dropped dramatically in the weights and can provide a threat. The veteran Salient loves this track but this is as far as he wants to go while Amber Moon is plating class and hasn't won for almost five years.
