Verdict

Liberty Ship is back for another crack having landed last year's inaugural running but will need to step up on his recent efforts if he's to repeat. BELINSKY makes more appeal as he's been running well in higher grade sprints of late and a reproduction of his latest fourth at Beverley would see him bang there at the finish. Another Citizen picked up a claimer at Ripon last month and went close again at Wolverhampton last week while Errigal Lad makes a quick reappearance after failing to figure at Beverley on Tuesday and has yet to score over the minimum trip. Mecca's Team could prove best of the remainder.
