CRISTY'S CALL can't be fancied with any confidence given he's been raised 10lb for winning over track and trip last time. But he won by over three lengths and today's opposition is pretty woeful. Gavin Cromwell's charge gets the nod ahead of Clare Harrier, a runner-up here on her latest start but still beaten eight lengths by Horsewithnoname. The latter was raised 14lb for that success so it was no surprise to see him beaten last time. Muck 'N' Brass has plummeted down the weights without showing nay sign of benefiting and Lord Kenmare attempts a longer trip having looked in the handicapper's grip of late.
