1.45 RED MILLS EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle 2m

Conditions are going to be very testing today at Fairyhouse which could make things tricky for punters. This opening race isn’t an easy start and only a tentative vote goes to Liz Doyle’s Silk Worm, who will receive weight from all 12 of her rivals. She showed she can get through this ground when second to Fully Charged at Limerick over Christmas. She was no match for that runner on the day but there was no shame given he ran well in fourth in a Grade 3 race earlier this week and Silk Worm was showing improved form from her previous sixth to Dolcita at Tramore. She can progress again and her light weight could be a big asset today.
