Liberty To Rock has won four times on Polytrack but only once in 30 starts on Turf while Hoppsan looks high enough in the weights after being easily beaten in a claimer last time. Liberty's Gift appears to do best on ground with some give while New Regalia showed much-improved form on very heavy ground at Galway. DIAMOND DAZE has been unable to get her head in front and is now 0-22. She is rarely beaten far and if she gets in here from her first reserve spot she can finally land that elusive victory but if she doesn't then another maiden with consistent form, Smoke Charger, would get the verdict.
