SEARCHLIGHT is the obvious choice. He scored easily over track and trip last week and an apprentice's allowance negates a big chunk of a 6lb penalty. The Dandy Yank has five lengths to make up with the selection on latest running while Captain Ryan finished a couple of lengths ahead of Go Charlie when third here on his latest start. Kodafine has done all her winning on the Polytrack so far and Knockroon needs to improve if he's to figure in the finish.
