Verdict

If - and it must be considered an if - INPURSUITOFFREEDOM can translate her recent turf improvement to this surface then she'd look a good thing here. Richard Hughes' mount travelled supremely well on her way to victory at Newmarket on Friday and escapes a penalty for that success, one which saw her and the second horse pull a good way clear. The concern would have to be that she seems to have relished racing on an easy surface on turf but it is difficult to oppose her from a handicapping perspective. In what may prove a Hanagan v Hughes battle, Blue Moon looks the biggest threat having just failed to get up over seven here last time, although a 4lb rise isn't ideal. Spirit Of Love and the visored Capacity need close inspection in the market while the consistent Powerful Pierre probably finds this trip a stretch.
