8 runners at Limerick today;
HARDEN is up first in the Maiden Hurdle, he’s been slightly disappointing so far but is in good order at home and we hope he can start to show some improvement today under Bryan Cooper.
MORGAN (pictured) is next in the Rated Novice Hurdle, he held on well to win at Naas last time out and goes here with a great chance under Bryan Cooper.
2 in the Handicap Hurdle; JEANNOT DE NONANT – Cian Collins and LANDAU – Jack Kennedy. The former hasn’t set the world alight since joining us from France but will benefit from Cians 7lb claim today which should help things along. The latter ran really well last time out after a long break and goes here today with a nice little chance.
Also 2 in the Mares Hurdle; STRIKE IS BACK – Jack Kennedy and newcomer TEARSOFCLEWBAY – Bryan Cooper. Strike Is Back won comfortably at Clonmel last time out and has been improving with every run, she came out of the race well and is in great order at home. Tearsofclewbay makes her stable debut, she has some very good form in England and looks a really nice mare.
GENERAL PRINCIPLE represents us in the next, a 3m Novice Chase of just 6 runners, he won easily on his last outing and prior to that has run some decent races. Bryan Cooper rides.
Last but not least we have ISODON in the Bumper, he’s yet to get his head in front but the improvement in the ground should suit him today. Jamie Codd rides.
