Verdict

Only four runners in this but the outcome is far from cut and dried. Letter O Credit beat the odds-on Make A Track by half-a-length over 3m here at the end of November but the runner-up is 4lb better off now and has won a Limerick handicaps in good style since. RUPERT LAMB beat the consistent Toner D'Oudairies in a beginners' chase at Leopardstown a year ago. Willie Mullins' charge made a winning reappearance at Naas and, as he meets Gordon Elliott's seven-year-old on identical terms today, can come out on top again as he loves heavy ground.
