Former Jim Bolger inmate, WHILE YOU WAIT, has a good strike rate over timber and scored with something to spare when obliging at Towcester last time. He definitely sets the standard despite the conditions of the contest and the Gary Moore yard enjoyed at couple of winners at Huntingdon on Tuesday. Treasure The Ridge, formerly with Dermot Weld, is an interesting sort to be pitched into claiming company first time up over hurdles and should receive a market check whilst Kyles Faith has a right mixed bag of form to his name but was good enough to score over fences here on his penultimate start and is not discounted. It's also worth seeing if there's any money around for Mister Bricolage as he showed definite glimpses of ability in novice hurdles when with Philip Hobbs.
