Verdict

Fine Lace would have a chance here on her best form but recent efforts don't inspire confidence. Amuse Me is only a pound higher than his last win but is another largely out of form and he usually prefers more give in the ground. Grams And Ounces has won three times on the Flat but been well beaten in a couple of recent starts under NH Rules so it's probably best to stick with EDGEBURY, who hasn't been easy to train but won on good to firm ground at Towcester in April and didn't do a lot wrong when third on his reappearance at Warwick - this looks less competitive.
