BLACK TRUFFLE beat El Mirage and Foie Gras easily enough when scoring at Kempton last week under today's apprentice. He gets the vote to go in again given today's modest opposition. Catalinas Diamond has struggled to make an impact since winning at Lingfield in March while Encapsulated never figured off a 6lb higher mark last time having won at Bath earlier. Pharoh Jake is usually thereabouts in this grade and Magical Rose has a shout off her current mark.
