13:55 Limerick Lace

Several nice unraced fillies on paper, with narrow preference for the Walk In The Park filly LIMERICK LACE, with another by the same sire, Jenny Flex, also making plenty of appeal.

14:25 Ernest Gray

A chance is taken on ERNEST GRAY scoring for leading point-to-point handler Colin Bowe, just getting the nod ahead of Mythical Hero and Present Fair.

14:55 Grand Jury

Some top yards involved, and it could boil down to a match between the two point-to-point winners in the field, with GRAND JURY getting the nod over Fameaftertheglory.

15:25 Last Quarter

All newcomers so pure guesswork, with LAST QUARTER a token selection, ahead of General Medrano and All The Ammunition.

15:55 Jet Of Magic

Another guessing game, but it looks best to follow the top point-to-point trainers and riders. The market can play a big part in sorting them out.

However, JET OF MAGIC catches the eye, hailing from a top yard and by a promising young sire, with Jamie Codd in the saddle a major plus. Masked Crusader, Sholsang and Your Own Story look likely dangers.

16:30 Big Shanghai

The performance of Fameaftertheglory in the 14:55 should give a good indication here to the chances of BIG SHANGHAI, who finished second to that horse at Mainstown in December and that looks the best piece of points’ form on offer. Midnight It Is was in front when a faller two from home at Borris House the previous month and, now with Gavin Cromwell, could prove the main danger.

17:00 Choice Of Words

Martin Brassil has his team in good order and, in a race with little form to go on, can land another win here with CHOICE OF WORDS. She had some better-fancied rivals behind when chasing home a runaway winner at Gowran Park last time. Of those making their racecourse debuts, Endless Escape and Luck Of The Duck appeal most.

17:30 Wall Of Fame

Very little racecourse form to go on and the level shown by WALL OF FAME (NAP) when third in a decent-looking Thurles maiden hurdle stands out. Isle Of Oir is the most interesting of the newcomers, while the Colin Bowe-trained Fame Valley should be noted too.
