Verdict

GET IN THERE gained a surprise though well deserved success over this trip at Limerick where she had five lengths to spare over Akadyr. The pair were well clear of the remainder and the form should stand up with the winner taken to confirm the form despite the revised terms. Mr Pernickety showed his first sign of form in a Fairyhouse handicap last time and looks capable of a big run while Glenbane Gent was in the process of running a good race over this C&D in November when brought down and can make his presence felt. Souvenir Royal ran well over fences last time after earlier showing some promise in staying hurdles on testing ground. Martin Scruff was fancied for the 3.45 at Punchestown yesterday where he should have got in as first reserve but would have an even better chance here as he wouldn't be out of the handicap.
