ELLA'S DELIGHT has joined a new yard after finishing runner-up at the Curragh last month. The winner has since run well in Group 3 company so the form looks solid enough and she can make a winning start for Martin Todhunter. Royal Connoisseur was below par at Southwell last time though still makes more appeal than Broadway Ranger on his earlier form. But both Serata Di Gala and He's My Boy are less exposed and the former may figure with an apprentice's 5lb claim helping his cause.
