Timeform pick out their three best bets from Limerick on Sunday...
"...with further progress on the cards, she could be the way to go under Davy Russell..."
Timeform on Classic Theatre
ZAOFU took really well to hurdling when a narrow second at Gowran 15 days ago and should prove a tough nut to crack as he attempts to go one better here, with that experience likely to bring about plenty of improvement. Storm Rising has been knocking on the door in similar company recently and is feared most, ahead of Ayr of Elegance.
CLASSIC THEATRE surpassed her hurdles form at the first attempt over fences when fourth at Clonmel last month, and with further progress on the cards, she could be the way to go under Davy Russell, who can boast a 21% strike rate at Limerick. Ceide Fields took a heavy fall last time but is a player if over that, while Sharps Choice is undoubtedly capable of better.
LADY LORETTO was heavily backed and duly shaped really well when third on her bumper debut at Punchestown in December. That form gives her a bit to find with Melior on ratings, but Margaret Mullins' charge is perhaps open to the more improvement of the pair and is taken to open her account at the second attempt, with Shelcomeonfordrun another to note.
