Happy New Year From Limerick Racecourse Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-116) of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 7 Declared Heavy Fine


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - You'd be surprised given the gruelling nature of the conditions here, if Dazzlers Day or Robbie McMahon were asked to turn out again, after finishing first and third in Friday's 80 to 102 two mile five furlong contest. First-time blinkers did the trick for Dazzlers Day yesterday and if he does make a quick reappearance then maybe the hint should be taken. If that French-bred doesn't line-up we'll plum for the locally-trained dour stayer, DRAWN N DRANK. Another horse with a similar sort of profile is Another Excuse and he can make his presence felt too. It's difficult enough to rule any of them out to be honest, so the likes of Ballinahow Lady, The Shoe Doctor and Another Flutter have their chances as well.
