None of these have been exactly prolific lately, though the mare Overnight Fame did win at Southwell in February. The handicapper has given Cruchain a chance while Iheardu and Roses Legend have the past form to figure. AMUSE ME has tumbled down the weights and may have benefited for a recent break. He gets fast ground for the first time over fences since winning at Wetherby last May and is only a pound higher today. He can defy top weight as Roybuoy will almost certainly find at least one too good again.
