Limerick Lane had three runs over fences in the spring and showed potential so it's a surprise to see him over hurdles for the first time. Appletime has shown a bit of promise in testing conditions but may just need the run after a break while Benevolent was a big disappointment on his bumper debut at Downpatrick though he should do better now tackling hurdles. Ontheground went to Kilbeggan last time with what looked a very good chance but ran very poorly and will need to bounce back so this can go to DALE STREET. Dessie Hughes' charge will be tackling testing ground for the first time but has some strong form in bumpers and over timber and has gone well in soft conditions.
