Verdict

A tough one to end the card and LIBERTY LADY is only a speculative choice to round-off the meeting on a high; Bossy Kitty is a likeable type that can represent good value for a place in the frame, while Melody In The Mist can be fancied to strip fitter after last month's reappearance and, as she is well-handicapped in comparison to her all-weather rating, a bold effort can be expected. Bossy Kitty is an honest type that could make the frame at fair odds. The handicapper does appear to be in control of her destiny at the moment, though. Others of note include: Lees Anthem, who won a similar race off a 4lb lower mark in April and has a fair chance of defying the assessor. We'll Deal Again was just ahead of Trade Secret and (Bossy Kitty) at Ripon 11 days ago and also merits a second look in the betting. However, Shane Kelly will have no option but to go hell-for-leather aboard Liberty Lady and, as she won with plenty in hand at Lingfield a fortnight ago; the Irishman's mount is well worth a shot at enhancing her profile while her confidence is on a high.
