LIBERTY SKY produced her best run so far when just failing to hold the in-form Henpecked over this trip at Ayr and can go one better. Gamesters Lad has gone up 5lb for finishing runner-up on fast going at Bath but Suzi Icon had no chance here last time when hanging to the left throughout. Pencaitland showed her first sign of ability here in June when staying on well from the rear and further improvement can see her in the frame while On A Par is better than he showed at Thirsk last time.
