Verdict

MY BROTHER SYLVEST had slipped down the weights since his win in September last year and took advantage at Exeter last Tuesday. He made all to trounce the opposition and looks to be getting off lightly with a only a 7lb penalty here. Heir To Be scored over C&D recently but the veteran hurdler will do well to follow up raised 9lb, though Great Esteem looks a threat having finished a creditable fourth in better company at Plumpton in September. Parazar will need to step up on his latest run in a Newton Abbot seller and Vicpol also needs to find a bit more despite finishing second over these hurdles on his latest start.
