Timeform on West Is Best

Gipsy Lee Rose - 14:05 Limerick

Gipsy Lee Rose made a pleasing hurdling debut when runner-up in what's proving to be a strong race at Clonmel on debut, so she's well worth another chance to build on that despite being pulled up in better company on heavy ground subsequently. Golden Glory caught the eye on her initial hurdling effort and looks the biggest danger, ahead of the winning pointer Princess of China.

West Is Best - 15:40 Limerick

West Is Best showed improved form to get off the mark in a C&D handicap 25 days ago, racing prominently and travelling fluently before taking up the running after two out and keeping on well. He remains low mileage, and is fancied to shrug off a subsequent 6 lb rise and follow up. All About Alfie and Taggle Og are next best, in a race that won't take a whole lot of winning.

Whereyouknow - 16:15 Limerick

Whereyouknow found enough improvement to get off the mark after a 3-month break at Cork recently despite once again promising to be even better suited by this sort of test, so further progress and a follow up is well on the cards for this likeable 5-y-o. Leave Your Mark, another who hasn't hit his limit yet, is preferred to Dark Decade in opposition.
