Limerick Racecourse Handicap Hurdle (Rated 80-109) of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 3f. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 10 Declared Soft To Heavy, Soft in places Sunny


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - First-time cheek-pieces swings the vote in favour of THE SNEEZER. T J Nagle's good servant is rated 102 in this sphere, which compares favourably with his chase mark of 133. A bold-showing is now surely in the offing from the six-time winner. Last Time D'Albain or Vic Chic would have been a more obvious way to go, but The Sneezer appeals more on the score of value. Beckwith Star won a decent beginners chase at Tramore last New Year's Day but he hasn't been tried over the larger obstacles since. Maybe Henry de Bromhead feels that there's a hurdle in him and it'll hardly be a surprise if he finds an opening at some point.
