El Libertador is usually in the mix at this level and today should be no exception. But he does have a few lengths to find with RODRIGO DE FREITAS on latest running over track and trip. The latter finished a close-up fourth to Irene Kennet on that occasion and can reverse running with the third Petersboden, who has been well beaten since. Recent Kempton runner-up Highly Likely has claims and Irons On Fire could get involved but Notabadgirl is proving inconsistent with a third at this track separating a couple of woeful efforts.
