Verdict

Guilty and Ho Yam Lay are the odd ones out as they failed to win their latest starts. Mr Shekells is penalised for winning a lower grade handicap at Leicester and it was soft ground when No One Knows scored at Haydock. That leaves Epsom winner Scutum, who should figure again with Frankie taking over the reins, and PANDA SPIRIT. The latter is preferred given she beat a subsequent winner four lengths at Kempton without being asked a serious question and there should be more to come from her.
