ONE FINE MORNING was well supported at Limerick a couple of weeks ago and his supporters rarely had an anxious moment. Ronnie O'Leary's charge won by 20l and the assessor took note with a 12lb rise but that shouldn't prevent a follow up. Whosaidso is up 5lb for his victory at Sligo earlier this month where he appeared to need every yard of that 3m trip on testing ground. Kennoway was a progressive chaser when last seen in the spring, scoring at Roscommon and Cork, so if he's ready after a break he can get into the action. Old Supporter ran very well behind the fancied Pat Garrett at Downpatrick and though the winner let the form down on Sunday that wasn't his day.
