INPURSUITOFFREEDOM is unexposed on ground with cut and is taken to defy a penalty gained for winning at Yarmouth. Julie Burke has advertised her ability in the saddle of late so her booking aboard this progressive filly, who gets in off a lovely racing weight and looks to have conditions to suit, is a big plus. Sharakti ran well enough at Pontefract without suggesting he's ready to defy this mark so with Mr Harmoosh and Lutine Charlie appearing to have landed in the handicapper's pocket of late pick of the others may be Norman Orpen, who has done little wrong so far but does have to show he can reproduce his best on this ground. Take It To The Max and Ostentation are both well-treated on their best with the former most likely to reproduce that under a talented rider while Tilsworth Glenboy is another with each-way claims.
