We have a few more of the Winter horses out today in Limerick.
We start things off with two in the second race, the Patrickswell Maiden Hurdle over 2m. FRONTAL ASSAULT never scored in bumpers last season but should find improvement for a hurdle this year, he will be partnered by Jack Kennedy. O CONNELL STREET didn’t get into his race on Friday when he was 1st reserve but comes here in good form, this will be his first start for the yard and we wish him and Davy Russell the very best of luck.
Next up is the Listed Irish EBF Cailin Alainn Mares Hurdle over 2m6f where we have two smart fillies. SURIN will sit as top weight under a penalty for winning a Graded race, this will be a very competitive place to start her season but she’s well able, Davy Russell rides. FELICIDAD takes a step up in class for this event which we hope she can take in her stride, Jack Kennedy will take the ride.
DALLAS DES PICTONS faces only 3 other rivals in the Limerick Rated Chase over 2m3f. This horse has good form in novice chases from last season and goes here in good form, he will be ridden by Davy Russell.
It’s the big race of the day next and we have just the horse for the event, ROARING BULL now famous for his exploits at Leopardstown last season takes his chance in the Munster National with Jack Kennedy in the saddle. AFOREMENTIONED has quickly established himself as a nice 3m chaser in the yard, he will be carrying a lighter weight and a further 7lbs has been taken off by Gavin Brouder.
Finally we have two in the last, an exciting beginners chase over 2m6f. PRESENT IN COURT hasn’t had the best time of it in chases so far but should be stronger this season and probably needed the run last time out, Davy Russell has been booked to ride. Impressive point to point winner and Graded hurdle winner RUN WILD FRED moves up to chasing. This horse was built to chase and should appreciate every bit of the trip, Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
