The following is the draw for the Irish Cup meeting to be hosted by Co Limerick CC next weekend. Ballymac Zena and Busy Man were two late withdrawals but the pairing of the two recent Champion Stakes winners Express Razor and Excelerate in the first round will justify the entrance fee alone on Day 1. Drive On Lesley is another very interesting runner in that second quarter.

Leading fancy Go Home Ourthat was first out of the hat and will wear the red collar six times if he claims this time-honoured classic. 2021 Derby runner up Carrowkeal Shane, recent Champion Stakes runner-up Aghadown Wonder and triple Cup winner Dresden Dingo will make life difficult though for him in that opening quarter.

Clocks from Clonmel would suggest that the pups Cool Spirit and Jeru Hope will have a great buckle in the third quarter where Benny Treanor was unlucky to have his two ‘Rossmore‘ dogs drawn against each other and where Champion Stakes runners Hermes and Derby Wonder should have a big say.

Liam Dowling’s two runners Boylesports Team & Ballymac General and Kyle Honour look the ones to beat in the fourth quarter although Charlie Chip could be a dangerous opponent early and Montpelier Hulk is another pup to be seriously considered if back to himself.
