Verdict

Absolute Shambles could probably run around here blindfold and has been in decent form lately at a lowly level. But he has little in hand on Brunette'Sonly on past form, though did finish ahead of Sea Cadet at Fontwell last month. SUDDEN LIGHT was second in this 12 months ago and the booking of Choc Thornton catches the eye as she returns from a break. Jim Best's mare gets the nod though Marble Walk, a close-up third last year, has claims again and Night Of Passion's latest second at Exeter is the best recent form on offer, though he has a longer trip and a 4lb higher mark to overcome now.
