    Verdict

    This looks an open contest though Copper And Five is raised 6lb for winning at Doncaster and Six Strings failed to land the hat-trick when beaten at Carlisle earlier this week and again carries a penalty. Forest Falcon is preferred to Ilza'eem dropping back down in class while Star Shield found only one too good at Leicester and new stablemate Safran is a winner in France. LIBERATED LADY found life tough in the Fred Darling at Newbury on her reappearance but this should prove more her level and improvement is expected from Hugo Palmer’s filly now handicapping.
