Michael Hourigan's Whats Happening looks a chaser going places

The Limerick GAA Supporters' Chase is the richest race on the card at Limerick and sees a couple of recent winners lock horns in Luna Runner and Whats Happening.

The former stayed on with intent to score at Downpatrick last time, but Michael Hourigan's Whats Happening looked a chaser going places when bolting up over two and a half miles here.

Character Actor adds further spice if getting back to the form of his Tramore second, while a return to his best for Crash would also put him in the mix.

Roscommon second Jamsie Hall heads the weights for the thetote.com Galway Plate Trial Handicap Chase, but he may find giving weight to Annie Other too tough, providing the Bob Back mare is as effective over this longer trip as when successful at Wexford.

The At The Races Rated Hurdle looks very tight on official figures, but the manner of Knockcroghery's recent wins on the Flat suggest she could be improving past her current rating.

John Nicholson's charge won at Bellewstown on Friday and if that race has left any scars, then Catch Me, Pires and Uncle Tom Cobley could all have a say in the outcome.

The meeting gets under way with the €20,000 Tote Placepot Guarantee Maiden Hurdle, which looks an ideal opportunity for Bob Le Beau.

Jessica Harrington's charge was a really classy type on the Flat, rated 110 at his best, and at Down Royal showed that although he may not be as much of a force over timber, there are races to be won in this sphere with him.

Clonmel second Soteira and bumper winner Sizing India could be on hand if Bob Le Beau fails to live up to expectations.

Coolmill bids to follow up a Killarney win in the Nathan Carter Play Live 25 July Handicap Hurdle.
