Pendo was clear of the field when veering right and unseating at Wolverhampton in October. He may prefer this right-handed track and is a leading contender on his return. Sleipnir disappointed when sent off favourite at Lingfield having finished runner-up here on his debut and Sebs Sensei has had plenty of chances without yet winning. JEREMOS is not one of his powerful yard's leading lights on the evidence of last year's form, but may well be good enough to land this, and he gets the nod to open his account with Zain Dream possibly coming out best of the newcomers.
