Take out Guishan and only 4lb separates this field of maidens on official figures. A speculative vote goes the way of LIBERTY JACK after a fourth at Newmarket as he's one of the least exposed and an apprentice's 5lb allowance should give him an edge. Confusing and Knight Owl are others to consider as their recent placed efforts look stronger form than Sky Garden's latest third over 6f, although the likes of North Pole and Mujarrad aren't out of this either in what looks something of a lottery.
