Past Winners » Quick Wave


… Quick Wave is a little more risky, but that risk is more than incorporated into her odds.  She was impressive in winning at Ludlow in January 2022, her first run back after a long break and, off the track again until last December, she was impressive again in winning the London Gold Cup at Sandown.

She was made favourite for the Welsh National on the back of that win, and, while she disappointed there, you can always forgive a horse a poor run in the Welsh National, on soft ground at Chepstow.  It is a specialist’s discipline.

She is 8lb higher today than she was when she won the London Gold Cup, but she won with so much in hand that day that a repeat of that performance, even off her new mark, should take her close.  She relishes a test of stamina, and she shouldn’t be as big a price as she is.

QUICK WAVE WON (ADV 20/1, SP 18/1)
