EVERVESCENT scored over 1m2f here last month under today's apprentice. He beat Ferdy easily enough and can go in again. Royal Alcor and Flying Power have both won for apprentices this year so are worth a second look and Highway Code went close at Doncaster in June when partnered by Eoin Walsh. But Charles De Mille is upped in class after a second at Catterick and makes less appeal.
