It's hard to believe that APPOINTEE hasn't built on a promising debut behind the talented Discourse in June. She was especially disappointing at Yarmouth last time but we'll blame the soft ground for that below-par effort and she is given one more chance in the hope that the ground remains on the good side and she can recapture earlier dash. Lovage progressed from her debut run to post a fair performance at Windsor and looks the one if the selection fails to fire. The Cecil and Haggas camps unveil newcomers with Murmur preferred of the pair, whilst Represent has place claims.
