LIBERTY BEACH improves with every start and gave the impression this extra furlong would suit when landing the Molecomb Stakes over 5f at Goodwood last month. John Quinn’s filly is just preferred to the unbeaten Under The Stars, who finished in front of both Living In The Past and Good Vibes when winning a Group 3 contest over today’s trip at Ascot recently. The latter’s stablemate Nasaiym is only a novice winner and Wejdan is also upped in class having won a maiden at Newbury on her debut. Precious Moments represents last year’s winning yard though the Ballydoyle filly finished behind compatriot and Albany Stakes runner-up Celtic Beauty at Ascot earlier and both need to take a step forward to figure in this.
