13:20 – COPPER NATION

A competitive contest. Cases can be made for Tramore runner-up Hors Piste and the promising Moon Eagle. Cork bumper winner Fons Vivus is a very interesting runner, but the one to beat is likely to be COPPER NATION who will be very hard to stop if reproducing last month’s narrow defeat at Punchestown.

13:55 – GRACCHUS DE BALME 

A drop to 2m may work for GRACCHUS DE BALME after two placed efforts over 2m4f at Navan. He is likely to be tested by Itwasfate and Whowonthetoss who also bring solid placed credentials to this race. Bumper form gives Noble Birth a chance.

14:30 – MR FRED ROGERS

This looks like a match. If MR FRED ROGERS can jump more fluently than on his last two starts he should be able to uphold previous Punchestown form with Shantreusse. The mares are up against it at these weights, and Eye Van could be booked for third place.

15:05 – BEECHMOUNT MAISIE

Not many of these make a huge amount of appeal. Derridae can confirm Limerick placings with Danegeld , but if BEECHMOUNT MAISIE can run to the level she showed at Tramore last month she can take the beating with trip and ground in her favour.

15:40 – FEYAN

Plenty of these come in with chances. Bonnie Kellie and Dancing Jeremy both come here in decent form, as does another recent winner in Donnrua Dream. Mamaslittlestar will relish the conditions and could be well handicapped, while The Chapel Field has an exploitable hurdles mark. The one to be on could be FEYAN, wide margin winner of a Punchestown handicap chase before running very well in a Limerick handicap hurdle.

16:15 – CAVALLINO

If course maiden hurdle winner CAVALLINO can avoid the mistakes he made at Navan this should be a good opportunity. Duchess Ravenwaves is probably his most dangerous opponent. Clonbury Bridge and Krabat could challenge for a share of the money.

16:50 – LESSOFDNEGATIVITY (NAP)

Mark McDonagh got off the mark over fences in style at Leopardstown and his 7lb claim could be decisive here on LESSOFDNEGATIVITY (nap). Seangoell should be suited by this step up in trip and can be fancied to reverse 2m course form with the much more exposed Bitview Colin. Another to consider is Be My Dream.

13:55 GRACCHUS DE BALME
14:30 MR FRED ROGERS
