- Limerick Racecourse Welcomes The 95 Stop Tour Inter-Firm Charity Raceday Fundraising For Limerick Children Maiden Hurdle
- 2m 3f, Soft to Heavy
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Well beaten in two maiden hurdles at Galway in September and October; difficult to see where the improvement will come from to be a leading contender here.
Unfancied and well beaten on latest three hurdle starts on various types of going; unlikely to be good enough.
Runner up in point-to-point on debut but poor form in three runs over hurdles and plenty to prove at present.
Showed little in bumpers last season but two promising runs in hurdle races at Wexford and Punchestown in October suggest he is going the right way and looks one for the shortlist.
Generally disappointing in bumpers and it was a similar story on hurdles debut at Cork earlier this month; too early to write off but signs don't look good.
Has at least finished his last two races but was never a danger in either and needs to improve his jumping to get competitive.
Showed precious little in two bumpers before being sent over hurdles at Gowran Park recently; not disgraced in that contest and would not need to improve too much to get involved in this weak contest.
Made steady progress last season and looked all over the winner when falling at the last at Limerick in March; never a danger on reappearance run at Naas recently; should be fitter here and one to consider.
Blinkered fitted here in the hope of a change of fortune; finished 21 of 22 last time out at Punchestown and had shown negligible ability previously; easily passed over.
Glimpses of ability in bumpers but no real show on his hurdling debut recently at Cork; entitled to improve but there look to be better options in this contest.
Well beaten on all his racecourse appearances; did finish 4th last time out but was beaten a long way and not really one to consider at present.
Looks up against it on all known form but has at least completed both her hurdle starts and while fanciful to believe she is capable of winning, a place finish would not be a total surprise.
Fair effort in recent run in a handicap at Galway (2m2f, soft) which is arguably the pick of the form in this contest; would not need to improve too much to be a leading contender.
Bumper winner (albeit subsequently disqualified) who is still to get to grip with hurdling and tends to be let down by her jumping; fair chance if problems have been ironed out.
