Not Now Blondie was only beaten a length over C&D last time and can make her presence felt again but MARMOT BAY is preferred. She had Archie Stevens back in third when landing a seller over track and trip recently and this looks no tougher. Amirah and World Freight Girl are handicap debutants to note while My Sweet Lord has finished closer in nurseries of late including a second over C&D last week. July's Yarmouth winner Senora Lobo has failed to figure since.
