Verdict

Given a weight for age allowance SABOTAGE looks to have a really decent chance on these terms in this listed handicap and Mark Johnston's runner is given our vote ahead of on-form Munsef and Press The Button. Running on well last time the pick was perhaps given too much to do but a Jockey not too familiar with the horse. That came off this mark and he┬┐ll be given more help in the saddle this time by the on form Silvestre De Sousa. Musef is in a bit of a purple patch at present and just got up in the shadow of the post to land a valuable handicap at Ascot last time out. Despite a mark rise he should still be able to give a good account of himself on a course he scored at on his only previous visit. A winner last time out Press The Button is still on a winning mark but has a bit to prove in regards to stamina and talent for this class while Keenes Day might just be a little high in the handicap but nevertheless is in with place claims. A top race this and Sabotage looks good value.
