Verdict

Violetgrace and Tornado Battle look outclassed and this rates a shoot-out between Liberty Jack and ICON DANCE. Both house similar profiles and there's little between the pair. Liberty Jack looked the likely winner last time at Leicester but was just run out of things by Lovesome who has since finished fourth in a Leicester handicap. He looks a likely future winner but Ben De Haan's charge receives the narrowest of votes in a race in which both principals give the impression of needing further. Tactics may determine the outcome but the De Haan filly has shown up nicely in handicap company the past twice and her 5lb sex allowance may just tilt matters in her favour.
