Wicklow (Rosehill Race 2 No. 4)
This three-year-old gelding trained by Chris Waller has two wins and two places from five starts. On resuming from a 29 week spell he chased hard to find the front at the 300m and kept going for a 0.97 length win over 1600m at Newcastle on 18 May, then he ran on strongly to find the front at the 150m and raced away for an impressive 1.78 length win over 1800m at Rosehill on 5 May, where he had the best last 800m race sectional of the day at distance. Is going really well and should win again.
