The veteran Fit The Cove was having his 15th start since the middle of June when beaten a long way at Roscommon and has probably had enough for now though he holds the three-year-old Sruachan on an earlier run at Listowel. ONDEAFEARS, Susiescot and Northern Rocked occupied the first three places in a similar handicap at Listowel where Shane Foley came with a perfectly timed run on the winner to snatch the spoils. There's likely to be little in it again but with Mick Halford's horses in tremendous form the winner is taken to go in again. Footprint has ben raised 8lb for his victory at Sligo in August which appears excessive, a remark that also applies to Hurricane Twister, raised a massive 12lb for his first-ever victory at Roscommon on Monday.
