In depth

Verdict

LIBERTY SHIP needed only to be shaken-up to score over C&D last week with previous winner Hab Reeh behind. He has a penalty to contend with but had earlier finished ahead of M J Woodward and Wreningham when third at this track and is expected to reverse form with runner-up Ryedale Dancer. The latter looks the biggest threat having gone close again since but Dazzlin Bluebell's only win to date came on the Fibresand at Southwell.
