Limerick Racing Tips: Henning looks a good prospect

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view at Limerick

"This will demand more up against more experienced rivals now but she has a good profile and is fancied to come through the challenge..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Limerick on Tuesday.

NAP

Henning - 13:45 Limerick

Henning is the only runner in this handicap hurdle for mares who has the Timeform 'p' attached to their rating and she looks potentially well treated on her handicap debut. She didn't progress as expected in bumpers last season, but she was much improved when making a winning start over hurdles at Clonmel last month, showing a good attitude to narrowly hold off the well fancied runner-up close home and there should be plenty more to come from her. This will demand more up against more experienced rivals now but she has a good profile and is fancied to come through the challenge.

NEXT BEST

Hand Over Fist - 14:45 Limerick

Hand Over Fist has been brought along gradually but as expected he showed improved form making his handicap debut at Tramore last month, appreciating the step back up in trip and leaving the impression he has even more to offer. He was probably asked to do too much too soon on that occasion, sent into a handy position early on the final circuit and threatened between the final two flights before his effort petered out. That experience won't be lost on him and this time he has a capable claimer taking off 5 lb, so another big run is expected.
