Verdict

He's Got Rhythm has already won three times this year so it was a surprise to see him in a claimer at Dundalk a couple of weeks ago. He's probably on a high enough mark at present and the concession of 11lb to MORDANMIJOBSWORTH looks beyond him. Ger Lyons' charge scored here a month ago and though twice beaten subsequently off his new mark he's proved himself more than capable of scoring again. One True Love is very consistent and her latest run at the Curragh is best ignored as she didn't get the best of runs. She'll be difficult to beat and none of the remainder can be dismissed with the lightly-raced Mouteab possibly the best of them.
