Verdict

SENDIYM has only shown moderate form over hurdles but it was a different matter over fences at Sedgefield on Tuesday when he won easing down by nine lengths. He can race from the same mark here so is taken to follow up. Mr Mistopheles had shown nothing before attracting a little support and beaten a short-head by Deny at Sedgefield in August when Dynamic Drive unseated his rider three out. He should improve again and can take a hand while Vodka Red produced his best effort to date at Wetherby in May and has the scope to make progress this season.
