Irish racing fans have a full Flat fixture at Fairyhouse to look forward to today and also a National Hunt card at Limerick and it is at the Munster meeting where the most valuable race of the day will take place.

Peter Fahey landed the biggest prize of the week so far with the impressive Peregrine Run claiming the Mayo National and Fahey looks to have the likely winner of the Play The Tote Pick6 For 10 Cent Irish EBF Mares Chase in TIMEFORWEST (7.40, Limerick).

The seven-year-old has only won one of her seven starts since joining the yard, but the conditions of this race should suit the mare with Darragh O'Keeffe taking 7lb off.

Timeforwest is in foal and that can often bring out noted improvement.

Willie Mullins enjoyed a four-timer in Ballinrobe on Tuesday and can keep that early season momentum up with LITTLE NUGGET (5.30, Limerick) in the Tote Free Raceday Tickets Mares Maiden Hurdle.

Patrick Mullins teams up with his cousin, Emmet, in the concluding Tote Supporting Limerick Racecourse Flat Race where SNEAKY GETAWAY (8.45, Limerick) should defy a winner's penalty.

At Fairyhouse, in-form apprentice Andrew Slattery looks to have some decent rides.

The Leaving Cert Student will be getting out of school slightly earlier to get to the Meath venue to ride LAUREL GROVE (5.45, Fairyhouse) for Fozzy Stack and recent winner KHAFAAQ (7.25, Fairyhouse), who is trained by his father and namesake.

Of all the runners on the Fairyhouse card, the most interesting may be in the final race where Dermot Weld sends out newcomer SEARCH FOR A SONG (8.30, Fairyhouse).

This Moyglare runner is a a half-sister to the Group One winner Free Eagle.
