63 Hospitality Packages At Limerick Racecourse Handicap Hurdle (80-95)
3m 100y | Heavy | 13 Runners | Turf
Off time: 16:05 | Winning time: 7m 13.9s
Won Wexford 2m4f h'cap hurdle off 4lb lower mark at Wexford in September. Failed to shine in three starts since and uncertain if step up in trip will suit.
Still a maiden but put up a good effort when runner-up at Clonmel last time. 3lb higher now but should go close if in similar form.
Stayed on when sixth of 16 over half a mile less last time hinting that this longer trip could suit. Regular conditional rider on board again and is not without a chance.
Four runs so far have hinted at a little ability and steps up a mile after being outpaced over 2m last time at Naas. Still has plenty to prove.
Won four point-to-points but hasn't yet shone in this sphere. Too early to write him off so better show at this lowly level is not out of the question on handicap bow.
Third over 2m5f at Tramore in August but not shown much in three starts since. Eased 2lb since last start but not showing much at present.
Won Clonmel handicap hurdle in January 2018 and has been out of luck and run moderately so far this term over fences. Switches back to timber and good jockey booked but needs to raise his game by some way.
Third on penultimate start here last April. Only start since came in December when finished midfield. Should be straighter now and has place prospects.
Has won here over fences in the past but didn't show a huge amount last time on first start since November. May have needed the run though so wouldn't be a major surprise should he show improvement.
11-race maidens whose best efforts have come when placed over shorter trips. Jury still out on whether she stays 3m after her latest effort so others make more appeal.
Struggled on both starts in handicaps so far of late and hard to see him improving enough for step up in trip to trouble the judge this time.
Wears first-time blinkers and fell when behind last time at Punchestown over this trip. Very little to recommend him on overall profile.
Has the potential to run into a place if on a going day but is only modest and a win would come as a big surprise.
