EL LIBERTADOR finished third in a seller here on his penultimate start and that's about the best piece of recent form on offer. He gets the token vote ahead of the likes of Filun and Mohair, who both have claims on past form, but arrive out of sorts. Lord Golan and Opus are others with a shout but haven't raced since early in the year while Devon Diva has struggled since winning at Bath back in July.
