FORTIFY has been runner-up four times since gaining his only success at Cork in March but there's nothing wrong with his resolution and he just keeps bumping into useful opposition. This should be his chance and he should hold too many guns for Hot Bed, who arrives in good form having chased home Royal Blue Star in a similar race to this at Killarney last week. Moran Gra was over 2l behind the selection at the Curragh last time so looks held and Starbright, who would have a chance on her juvenile form, finished tailed off last on her latest start at Gowran in April.
