AS I AM didn't stay 2m7f at Worcester last month but had won easily over 2m4f at the same track earlier and gave Hopstrings an 18-length beating at Southwell 10 days ago over 2m5f. Despite the double penalty, it will take a decent effort to lower her colours here. Crazy is the least exposed of these and can only improve on a debut success over timber while Bahira will be all the better for her run behind Crazy at Worcester and makes more appeal than winning pointer Duchess Theatre. Nell's Nan has been placed twice at Downpatrick and shapes as though she'll be suited by the longer trip.
