It will be interesting to see if there's any money in this for the returning Dancing Teasel, who has been quite highly tried in a light career to date. Taunton second Lady Bridget must have a chance but Star Of Massini ran a shocker back up in trip here last month and Exeter runner-up Present Accepted is 7lb out of the handicap. Chilworth Screamer has been dropped a pound since finishing second over course and distance last week and will probably start favourite. But FINMERELLO has shown enough to suggest she can win a race like this and she should strip fitter for her run at Huntingdon so gets the nod.
