After a promising debut at Sandown, LIBERTY RED couldn't quite cope with L'Artiste at Beverley but ran very green and should now be ready to gain his first success. Dullingham proved that he stays this trip with a decent effort behind Notarise at Bath while Calrissian was staying on over a mile last time though is looking exposed. Fun Mac made an encouraging start in what looked a strong maiden at Goodwood and it will be a surprise if he doesn't make the expected progress and take a hand.
