Special Token was disqualified after finishing first past the post at Cork but made amends with an easy victory at Limerick. He's probably capable of better but the race in which Carrigeen Lechuga beat DEFINITE CLASS, also at Limerick, looks a stronger event and these two can fight out the finish again. The winner had just over a length to spare but the runner-up made a couple of costly mistakes and, provided she jumps better, should take her revenge. Ballinahow Lady was well beaten that day and the remainder will need to find improvement to figure.
