Daryl Byrne's claim negates most of the penalty carried by Light From Mars for last week's victory over 7f. Go Far is in a similar position with Tim Clark's allowance reducing a 7lb rise for a recent win at Wolverhampton. But DUTIFUL SON is less exposed and landed the odds over track and trip last time when beating the re-opposing Marjong by a cosy length and a half. Ryan Moore keeps the partnership intact and the Noseda colt can go in again. Mac's Power is inching closer having tumbled down the weights and should be in the mix once more.
