Verdict

House Limit is in fine form and his dead-heat at Downpatrick has meant a 4lb rise, which just gets him into this handicap - Conor Maxwell is good value for his claim. City Line continues to run well without winning and he's now had 31 unsuccessful starts over hurdles. QUARTON has returned to Ireland after a spell in the UK and was having his first start since August when runner-up on fast ground at Down Royal last month. Paul Carberry again takes the ride and Gordon Elliott's charge looks the one to be on. Hurricane Sky, a dual winner on the Flat, has yet to score over timber and would be better suited by some ease in the ground. Mydor attracted strong support at Tipperary in May and duly obliged though that was over 2m4f on ground with plenty of give.
