None of this bunch make much appeal. PISTE finished second over C&D in between her more normal modest efforts and she gets the token vote on that running. Alpha Tauri has a close-up third in soft ground at Hamilton back in July to recommend him while Simple Rhythm finished runner-up to Auntie Kathryn, who runs in the first race, at Yarmouth last time but was still beaten four lengths. Rio Sands also made the frame at Catterick on his latest start, albeit in an amateurs' race, but Invigilator has done all his winning on the all-weather.
