Knockfierna's Limerick return
Charles Byrnes is looking forward to seeing talented mare Knockfierna return to action in Sunday's PricewaterhouseCoopers Chase at Limerick.
The seven-year-old won four times from seven starts during her first season over fences and with a mark of 141, may have to tackle the big boys this season.
"She's come back in good form. She showed some nice form last season and this is a good race to start her off in," said Byrnes.
"The ground will be all right for her and we'd be hopeful of a good run.
"Sunday's race will tell us a lot about where we're going with her."
The Mags Mullins-trained Down In Neworleans makes his first start in over 400 days, but is three from three over fences.
"It's his first run back after being off a year and it's a good race," said Mullins.
"He'll probably need the run but it's a small field and a nice place to start off. If he gets round in one piece and comes home safe, I'll be happy.
"His work has been good and his schooling has been good. I think I've got him fairly ready but with a big horse like him, you're never sure until they run."
