Guinness Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-116) of £10,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 5f. 1st - £7,245.00 2nd - £1,785.00 3rd - £840.00 4th - £525.00 11 Declared Heavy Raining


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - Last year's winner FAHAMORE could do it again. Eddie Harty and J P McManus are a potent combination and it looks like this fellow may have had the Limerick Christmas Festival on his radar for some time. Of course backing a horse that fell on his previous outing, all of 245 days ago, mightn't be the sanest course of action but Fahamore looks a nice young prospect and hopefully he'll be strong in the market. Four other horses here have triumphed at Greenmount Park in the past and For A Finish, See Double You, Cloughmile and The Lady Granuaile have bits and pieces of chances again. Others come into it as well but a fit and fancied Fahamore will be difficult to upstage.
