BLUEBELL is out of a middle-distance mare so did well to score over 7f at Limerick where she got on top close home. She wasn't suited by dropping back to 6f in a Curragh Group 3 subsequently and this should play to her strengths. Princess Aloof is another bred for further and she needed every yard of the Sligo 7f when catching Captain Moonlite on the line so she'll also appreciate this trip. Main Straits hasn't been able to quicken on both starts over 7f and Mansion House, who beat him and Prince Art comfortably at Limerick, has disappointed since. Bleeding Hearts showed promise at Fairyhouse where he would have finished closer but for being impeded.
