Verdict

SARGENT LIGHTFOOT is at the top of his game and shaped best of those held up when fourth in a handicap at Limerick a couple of months ago, so he gets the vote in an open contest. Mister Butler is on a very appealing mark if he can replicate his recent chasing efforts, so he goes down as the main threat ahead of Grey Habit.
