Verdict

Sablazo's recent second at Lingfield was his best run for a while but there's no guarantee he'll repeat it here from 2lb out of the handicap. ZEN FACTOR has won off a higher mark over hurdles and is slowly getting his act together over fences, finishing third in a better race at Stratford last month. He could be worth risking against more exposed rivals though Full Ov Beans won at Worcester, easily beating Guns Of Love, and Fakenham in October before falling behind Roc De Guye at Stratford. The latter has gone close again since at Fakenham but that was a poor contest while Sawago has been well below his best lately.
