Verdict

Absolute Shambles arrives in the best form with a recent victory over track and trip to his credit. But today's ground is a big worry as he's done all his winning on a faster surface. BRUNETTE'SONLY makes more appeal on that score as she won in soft ground at Exeter in March and is only 4lb higher today. Seamus Mullins' mare gets the vote despite Changing Lanes having slipped down the weights and finishing closer at Ffos Las last month. Spanish Fork is another on the slide but the testing going doesn't bode well for his chances.
