Timeform on Likable Chancer

Timeform identify three bets from Limerick on Friday...

Future Proof - 13:05 Limerick

Future Proof has run a number of solid races in defeat over hurdles and looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark in this sphere. He was in good form on the Flat last month, twice finishing placed at Leopardstown, and he took a step forward on his previous hurdles efforts when third on his handicap debut at Punchestown this month. That form is the best on offer and blinkers have been applied in a bid to conjure further improvement. Poseidon also produced his best performance over hurdles on his most recent outing and he appeals as the biggest danger.

Likable Chancer - 14:10 Limerick

Likable Chancer was unable to take advantage of a lenient-looking mark on his handicap debut at Gowran Park last month but he got back on the right track when finishing third in a Wexford maiden hurdle last time. He has gone up 5 lb in the ratings but still looks to be well treated and is entitled to build on that encouraging effort at Wexford. Father Ailbe ran his best race over hurdles when fourth at Navan last time and he is the biggest danger.

Moyode Lady - 15:20 Limerick

Moyode Lady showed improved form when finishing runner-up in a maiden hurdle at Newcastle two weeks ago and appears to be on a good mark. She stayed on strongly towards the finish, seemingly relishing the step up to two and a half miles and proving her effectiveness on extremely testing ground. The step up to three miles will provide an even sterner test of stamina but Moyode Lady is up to the challenge.
