MISS BLAKENEY is so far clear of the opposition on official ratings, she's impossible to oppose. A frustrating sort, this is easily her best opportunity to date and she'll start at prohibitive odds. Most of the remainder have ran their best races over hurdles including Arbeejay, Irene Kennet and Fluter Phil so Litmus could be the one to chase home the selection as she steps up in distance.
