1/1

Evidently is a filly with plenty of stamina; impossible to oppose if replicating the performance that she gave at Doncaster (1m4f, good to firm) on Saturday when thrashing her rivals by an ever-widening 4½L; escapes a penalty (due an 8lb rise).

Thrives at Pontefract (1,2,1,2) and was a winner over 1m2f on this card last year; 6lb higher than when beating Nelson River by 1L over C&D (good to soft) in October 2018; disappointing in a Doncaster Class 4 latest.

A four-time Flat winner (1m4f-2m); blew away the cobwebs with a fair second to Archive on seasonal reappearance over 1m4f at Beverley (Zihaam fourth, Just Wait eighth); not on her game at Nottingham (1m6f) subsequently; must bounce back.

1lb higher than when winning for Roger Charlton at Wetherby (1m6f, good to firm) in June 2018; well wide of the mark since switching to Rebecca Bastiman for 22,000gns in July 2018.

More prolific on the AW (4-19) than on turf; that said, he did win a 1m2f maiden here at odds of 100/1 way back in April 2014; competes from the same mark as when finishing 1L second to Mr Coco Bean at Redcar (penultimate).

Handicapped to be competitive, often placed from higher marks over this trip in the summer of 2018; dwelt at Hamilton latest so that effort can be potentially excused; has Beverley previous with Flower Power and Just Wait.

Five-race maiden who cost 65,000gns as a yearling; shaped as if needing a greater test of stamina when a staying on fourth over 1m1f at Musselburgh (winner La Sioux has followed up); stable are flying at present.

Prominent-racer; made all when recording a second career win over tonight's trip at Catterick (good) last September; still sits 2lb above that last winning mark, yet is ever so steadily raising her game in 2019; more required.

11-race maiden who arguably deserves to find a small race for a string of consistent efforts; 1lb higher than when finishing a keeping on 1¼L second to Buckland Boy on his first attempt at this 1m4f trip at Thirsk latest.

Hasn't done much winning in recent years (largely fallow since early 2016); placed on his last couple of starts in 2018 (over 1m6f); would come as a surprise winner returning from a 216-day absence.

Hasn't raced on turf for 12 months now (0-2), but does have a couple of 1m4f AW wins on his CV, although one of those was at the height of the prize money disputes in March (in a weak three-runner affair).

Triple course winner (1m-1m2f) in the more distant past; not on his 'a' game in recent years (placed on a couple of occasions); unconsidered tonight returning from a 239-day absence.

Betting

Forecast

Just Wait (1/1), Duke Of Alba (5/1), Sempre Presto (8/1), Zihaam (9/1), Champagne Rules (12/1), Spark of War (12/1), Airplane (22/1), Low Profile (25/1), Flower Power (25/1), Love Rat (25/1), Correggio (40/1), Jan De Heem (50/1)

Verdict

The filly JUST WAIT escapes a penalty for Saturday's 1m4f Doncaster apprentices' handicap romp (due an 8lb rise), so rates as nigh impossible to oppose despite having previously finished behind a couple of tonight's rivals (Flower Power and Zihaam) at Beverley in April. For those seeking an each-way alternative against a horse likely to start at cramped odds, the upped in trip Spark of War is worthy of consideration for the bang in-form master of Belstane Keith Dalgleish.
