Verdict

SPARKLE FACTOR provided Dermot Weld with yet another victory at Limerick and the filly shouldn't have too many problems following up. Michael Halford runs the pair at the top of the weights and Glassatura may come out better than Dundalk winner Slipper Orchid as Shane Foley has chosen him and he won at the first time of asking last season. C'Est Ma Souer could provide a threat as she beat a huge field at the Curragh in October and reappeared with an eye-catching run in a tough handicap there.
