SIMON SHERWOOD will work Suny Bay at a secret location within the next 48 hours before deciding whether the grey will run in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury a week tomorrow.

Suny Bay, who took the race in 1997, is a 12-1 shot with Coral to join a short and illustrious list of dual winners, which currently consists of just Mandarin and Arkle.

"He is going to work in secret in the next 48 hours - I am not going to say where - and if he worked badly, he wouldn't run," Sherwood said. "He has won first time out four times in the last five seasons, so I don't think that is going to be a problem for him."

Francois Doumen's Djeddah is now 8-1 from 10-1 with William Hill for the Hennessy and 10-1 from 14-1 with Coral after sustained support.
