Munster Hurdle of £10,000.00 5-y-o plus

2m. 4f. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 7 Declared Soft To Heavy, Soft In Places Overcast but dry


Formscan By Thomas Weekes - UNIKA LA RECONCE can land this interesting event following a good winning Irish debut at Thurles. The runner-up then, Speckled Wood, has since won well and the selection looks a fair type. There are a few dangers though with Anonis likely to be thereabouts. He fell early on in a Grade 1 latest but has shown good form prior to that. Davy Russell has sided with Gigginstown's giant Rye Martini who looked a horse with a future as a chaser when last seen at Tipperary last October. The long layoff is a concern though while head-strong Rathlin, who reverts to hurdles here, will blaze along in front but needs to recapture his best form to win. %0A
