Freedom's Light didn't run as a juvenile and only three times last year where she ended landing a Lingfield maiden. She'll probably do better over further but the trip looks right for Raskova, who scored at Newbury last summer on the only time Frankie Dettori was in the saddle. BARWICK has gained both victories to date on this track and though he hasn't won for some time he looked on the way back at Windsor a fortnight ago and is at the right end of the handicap to get back on the winning trail. Red Shuttle and Chain Of Events have been going well on the all-weather and Silver Alliance is just 4lb higher than when successful here last June.
