It's difficult to know what to make of The Bosses Cousin, who won a bumper and a maiden hurdle before well beaten in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham on his final start. He'll be tuned up for this reappearance and has to be a threat but HE'S A DELIGHT is given the nod. Noel Meade's charge wasn't beaten far behind two useful performers in Terminal and Tofino Bay in a Grade 2 at Navan last week and will take some beating on that form. Caheronaun was very disappointing at Tramore after a bright start over fences over this track and trip and is capable of better but the remainder will need to find some improvement to get involved.
