HE'S GOT RHYTHM was quite highly regarded in his younger days but this is his level now and he certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Down Royal 11 days ago. David Marnane's charge has the beating of Solent Ridge on that run and can make a successful switch back to handicap company. Pencil Hill should improve on his fourth at Naas in April but has yet to win over this trip while the three-year-old Gleadhradh hasn't been able to build on his win at Dundalk in March, though probably still has some scope. Good To Follow came back to form when second over this trip at Cork earlier in the month and looks best of the rest.
