LIBERATION DAY, a half-brother to three winners, made a very promising start at Leicester and it will take a good performance to prevent him going one better. Lahessar, a 120,000gns yearling, ran very well in what looked a good race at Newbury and will have come on plenty for the experience while Hafeet Alain caught the eye when staying on late at Thirsk and is another who will improve. Absolute Dream has a nice pedigree and missed the break at Haydock while Mister Dependable has a speedy pedigree and Karl Burke's yard is going well.
