Irish action today hails from Limerick where the feature race is the Grade Three Kerry Group EBF Mares Novice Hurdle. Racing commences at 2:55 with the Limerick Races Congratulate World Hurdle Winner Solwhit Hurdle.
Solwhit’s trainer Charles Byrnes has two to choose from in the race dedicated to his superstar, the Limerick Races Congratulate World Hurdle Winner Solwhit Hurdle at 2:55.Courage seems to be his best hope but he still has 21 lengths to make up on Willie Mullins Djakadam who has been impressive to date.
Twingline was in the process of running a fine race when crashing out at the last in a Listed hurdle at Sandown last month but, on that form she may be capable of gaining compensation here in the Grade Three Kerry Group EBF Mares Novice Hurdle at 15:25. Missunited gives weight to all her rivals but has the class to make her presence felt on these terms.
The Grade Three I.t.b.a Fillies Scheme E.B.F. Dawn Run Mares Novice Chase takes place at 16:25 where Norahs Fancy aims to add to her recent Grade 2 honours over 2m4f at Thurles last time. She sets the standard on recent form. She has to give weight away all round to her rivals but her class may prevail from Charlie’s Vic.
Fredsmemory showed great improvement last time when finishing a mere four lengths off the progressive Outlander last time. He is a horse that seems to be going the right way and could take all the beating today in the Kevin Frost Memorial at 5:55. Airlite Supreme and Gallant Tip pose the major threat.
