Verdict

BEWARE CHALK PIT's run behind Absolute Shambles here in the spring was too bad to be true. The top weight, dropped 3lb since finishing second to Pete The Feat over C&D two weeks ago, is 11lb better off now with Chris Gordon's charge and can turn the tables and get off the mark for the season today. Zepnove is hard to fancy on recent efforts and struggles to stay this far while none of the others have shown enough to suggest they'll be winning any time soon.
