Agreed with other commenters that in general the strong hand should be leading the relays, but I think it's going to be a bit tough to sort out every possible major suit shape in the weaker hand. Furthermore, the damage is already done in terms of right siding by the time the 1NT bid comes in. From the standpoint of the weak 5-5 hand, having decided to drive to game in whichever suit we have a fit, the question is only what is better when we have a fit in both.

That's sort of what I was hoping to hear – but I didn't want to give away the real problem which is how much disparity would there have to be between the majors before we chose ? E.g. if were QTxxx? QJxxx? KJxxx with no card?

Here (New Zealand) you have to have started bidding the final board by the time the clock reaches 0. There's then an undetermined period of time which you have to finish and score up (though these days most of the results are being entered electronically anyhow so scoring up is moot). So typically for a seven board match the clock would be set to something like 50 minutes.
