Despite being first up off a seven month break, Lucky Liberty has been the early firmer to take out the Christmas Stakes (1200m) this Boxing Day at Caulfield.

The Henry Dwyer trained galloper hasn’t raced since the Goodwood at Morphettville when finishing down the track behind Vega Magic. Looked to trial well last week at Colac and punters are on, backing him into $4.40 after opening $4.60.

Merriest was the early drifter, out to $5.50 from $4.80, but she’s back into her opening price with punters believing she’ll get a soft time of it on speed, as will Keen Array ($7-$6).
