Mullarkey gained hiss second course and distance victory when battling on three weeks ago and though 3lb higher has won from higher marks. Miss Blondell has never run over a trip this far but wasn't stopping over 1m2f at Bath and looks well enough handicapped to make her presence felt. Fair Power completed a double at Chelmsford but looked a few pounds high from his new mark on his hat-trick bid. CONTRAST stayed on strongly to lead close home in both recent starts over 1m2f so the longer trip looks sure to suit and he can complete a hat-trick from 3lb higher.
