Verdict

THE ABSENT MARE came in for some support at Lingfield last time but wasn't quite good enough when fourth to Nashville. The C&D winner is given another chance today ahead of the in-form Six of Clubs. The latter has won two of his last three starts and should be in the firing-line again while Vimiero is another with a shout after his latest second over a shorter trip here to Thecornishcockney, who has won again since.
