It could pay to stick with SABRATHA here. She followed up a win over C&D when making all at Musselburgh last time and Dale Swift's claim reduces a 5lb rise in the weights. She also has the beating of Music Festival and Benny The Bear and a line through her earlier win gives her the edge over Burnwynd Boy too. The latter still looks a threat having gone close back here on his latest start, but Northern Flyer could prove the biggest danger having slipped down to a tempting mark and posting a better effort at Newcastle last time.
