Chilworth Screamer beat Finmerello by 10 lengths at Wincanton in May but the runner-up enjoys a big turnaround in the weights here. On The Off Chance has been raised 5lb since finishing second at Uttoxeter while Detroit Red has gone up 7lb since a narrow second at Newton Abbot. AS I AM's penalty means she's due to a carry welter burden but we still can't see Crazy reversing latest Bangor running. Don Cantillon's mare has an unbeaten record over this trip and, with Conor Shoemark claiming 7lb, another victory could be on the cards.
