PUNTERS are predicting a big run for a racehorse owned by Dame Judi Dench and Mystic Meg.
The Oscar winner, 86, and astrologer, 78, are the unlikely partnership behind the James Eustace-trained Amsby.
The four-year-old has a best finish of second in three races – never being shorter than 7-1.

But he could go off at shorter odds than that for the 3.10 at Lingfield with money pouring in for the eye-catching market mover.
Amsby has been backed from 10-1 to 8-1 for the 1m2f Betway Casino Handicap Class 5 contest at the Surrey track.
Backers will be able to watch the race – which boasts a £3,429 first-place prize – live on ITV.
The market move for Amsby means that, at the time of writing, only three horses are fancied more than the unexposed runner.
Stopnsearch is the 7-4 favourite, Convertible the 7-2 second favourite and 11-2 Capla Crusader behind them.
Dame Judi revealed the reason behind Amsby's name when speaking to Sky Sports Racing last year.
The 'M' star from James Bond said: "My grandson is called Sam and he always used to spell his name Ams, the wrong way round.
"I thought for his 21st we should all have an ear! [in ownership]."
Dame Judi is a huge racing fan and has boasted a Group 3 winner in Smokey Oakey.
The late horse bagged Dame Judi a cool £77,900 when winning the William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster in March 2008.
As for her current crop, Dame Judi also co-owns the Paul Nicholls-trained As De Mee, who was a fancy for the 2018 Grand National before being pulled out.
However, Amsby appears to be the only one she co-owns with Mystic Meg and Bryan Agar.
