Liberty Ship was all out to win at Yarmouth last week and has a penalty to overcome, while Inde Country's recent victory came in a seller on the Polytrack and she'll find this tougher. Andrasta popped up at Thirsk on Saturday, but she's not the most reliable and will struggle over this shorter trip if making one of her regular slow starts. BLOWN IT only joined his current yard in June but went close at Musselburgh last Friday and looks ready to take advantage of his slide down the weights. Keith Dalgleish's charge gets the vote.
