SENDRENI is the form pick to land the finale with both Whitbarrow and Dawson Creek worth noting. The selection has two career wins from his six starts and is only two pounds higher for the latest of those at Brighton last month. He still looks like an improving individual and has proven form on an all weather surface and for that reason he is difficult to oppose. Whitbarrow has been around a while. He has not won for over a year now but he has been running well in defeat this month and can once again be in the shake up. Dawson Creek enters calculations after catching the eye over course and distance last time out. He generally comes good around this time of the year on the all weather and for that reason he has to be given respect. But for the winner we return to Sendreni.
