Dianne Sayer has her team in good nick at present and SENDIYM can post another success for the yard, supplementing a recent Sedgefield success when the subject of strong market support. The six-year-old is raised 7lb for that battling victory but this looks an ordinary contest on paper and he can follow up, especially as he was a dual winner on ground with cut when trained in France by Jean-Claude Rouget. Mount Welcome has gone well enough the last twice over fences and is a possible here if displaying a similar level over timber, whilst First Morning landed his sole career success here last August for Noel Kelly. He's shown little or nothing since joining Michael Blake but a return to that form would bring him into the equation. Ravi River is a possible outsider from the foot of the weights.
