Verdict

FEDERICI warmed to his task as the race unfolded at Limerick on Sunday and looked a progressive hurdler. He arrives here with a 6lb penalty which doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up. Billybuster won here and at Wexford in October before beaten on his hat-trick attempt when 7lb higher and faces another stiff task. Kalaroa won a maiden here in October but has run poorly since and though Pleased As Punch makes a quick reappearance after her placed effort at Limerick on Friday she was beaten almost 14l and is still a maiden.
