The hat-trick seeking WATERSMEET has proved a profitable horse to follow on synthetic surfaces and Mark Johnston's charge is fancied to take advantage of another nice opening. The seven-year-old has already qualified for All-Weather Finals day and should prove too strong for Lord George, who got back on track with a course-and-distance success last month. Curbyourenthusiasm has some ground to make up on the selection based on a couple of past meetings.
WATERSMEET sets the standard and is taken to complete the hat-trick. Lord George won with a bit in hand over C&D last month, and he’s got it in him to go well again.
