Rhal made all over track and trip under today's apprentice on her latest start and should confirm running with both Hypnosis and Boundless Spirit. However, SELECT COMMITTEE makes more appeal. He scored on fast ground at Beverley earlier this month with Forever's Girl behind and ran well again in better company at Ripon on his latest start. Igoyougo won off a higher mark last season and showed a bit more at Musselburgh last time, but Silvanus looks in need of some respite from the handicapper judged on his recent placed efforts.
