On Saturday we are back in Ireland, for interesting looking 12 furlong listed race at Limerick .
9 runners declared for quality looking 1M 4F listed race at Limerick,on ground described as soft . The three main contenders are Bondi Beach ,Altesse & Toe The Line .
BONDI BEACH : Useful 4-Y-0 colt , winning 2 out 6 ,including winning 1M 6F Curragh Cup in June , though ran his best race ,when finishing close 2ND in group one St Leger at Doncaster in September .Obvious claims with this drop in class .
ALTESSE : Very consistent 5-Y-0 mare (12223221 )Won 1M 4F Listed race at Leopardstown 17 days ago on heavy ground,beating Ballybacka Queen. Has bit to find on official ratings ,though has good record in listed races over 12 furlongs on soft ground.Solid each-way claims .
TOE THE LINE : Won 4 out 18 , including bolting up small 1M 6F conditions race at Gowran Park two weeks ago on heavy ground .Has won in listed company ,though all her best form has been over 1M 6F & 2 miles ,this shorter trip may not suit .
VERDICT : Bondi Beach is clearly the one to beat ,with an official rating of 118,though clearly stays well ,this drop back in trip may not be ideal .Odds around 10/11 look short enough on his seasonal debut .
At the prices ALTESSE looks the each-way bet ,against the short price favourite .Has been model of consistency in Listed races over the last two seasons (122322) and looks to have ideal conditions here (1M 4F on soft ground) .Odds around 6-1 look solid each-way value .
