The incredible Fit The Cove returns for another season, bidding to add to his dozen victories at the age of fourteen. Mordanmijobsworth was in top form at this time a year ago but hasn't been running well recently and He's Got Rhythm is another who hasn't been in the best of form. Truly Delightful won handicaps at Gowran and Killarney in May and hasn't performed badly from her new mark subsequently. She should go well but it's the three-year-old QUE SERA SERA who looks the one to be with. David Wachman's filly cost 135,000gns as a yearling and though it's unlikely she'll repay that outlay she's shown enough promise in her last two starts to gain her first success. Pretty Angel struggled at the weights after her Dundalk victory but stayed on strongly over 7f last time and this trip is likely to suit.
