In depth

Verdict

SWEET LIBERTA lost her maiden tag over the C&D a fortnight ago and followed up with 6lb extra in impressive fashion at Lingfield last week. She's penalised a further 6lb here but her young rider's claim is a major plus and a hat-trick beckons. Going Grey was unfortunate not to finish much closer over 1m1f at Wolverhampton last time and this step up in trip should suit but Clapped has run his last two races over 6f and this is a huge jump in trip. Bridge That Gap is just 3lb higher than when scoring here in October and wasn't too far behind the selection last time so should get closer on the revised terms.
