In depth

Verdict

Plenty with claims in this but SWEET LIBERTA was the most impressive recent winner and gets the nod. She won by over four lengths at Lingfield last week and a penalty is negated by an apprentice's 7lb allowance. Langham Lily won over today's trip at Wolverhampton in November and Refreshestheparts has the more recent form with a victory at at the same track albeit over a shorter distance. Nolecce scored in lesser company over C&D a week ago but Shalambar makes more appeal off his current mark and McBirney is another to consider.
