LIBER, fourth in a valuable sales race at York last month and already a winner here, should be good enough to defy top weight in this company as Marchwood has been struggling to get his head in front, though may not have been suited by the Fibresand last time. King Of Kudos is probably open to improvement while Ron Harris runs both Kodatish and Windforpower with the former preferred after getting off the mark over 5f here 11 day ago.
