Verdict

Blinkers appeared to have the desired effect on High Class Show at Thurles in November as she produced her best run so far over timber to get close to Rating Queen. She could have done without a 5lb rise but should still get involved. Henrietta's Way was allowed to stride out in front at Limerick and stayed on really strongly for a comfortable success. She's up 7lb but her regular rider can use his claim and another big run is anticipated. Backinthere had MIlestone Miss just behind when landing a Limerick maiden but failed to run up to that form on the same track later. The runner-up has more scope and can turn the tables but it's CASTLEROCK ROSE, who stayed on strongly to beat the fancied Kashline in a Limerick maiden last week, who is handed the vote.
