How does one make a script default to "(R)etry"

When prompted with the following,

(A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip, Ski(p) all

Re: Automatic Retry in Script

I suppose that you open the session via command line parameter, so before the "option batch on" takes effect. Use command "open" instead and place it after the "option batch on".

Automatic Retry in Script

I am using a combination of a saved session and a script to upload a file.

Here's my script:

# Automatically answer all prompts negatively not to stall
# the script on errors
option batch on
# Disable overwrite confirmations that conflict with the previous
option confirm off
lcd c:\winnt
# Upload the file to current working directory
put test.txt
# Disconnect
# Exit WinSCP

Now, when I connect to the server, it's always slow, so it asks me: "Wait for another 15 seconds?"

Once I hit "R" to retry, it connects successfully. How can I incorporate this into my script, so I don't always have to be the one pressing "R"?

Thanks for your help!
