Tipperary plays host to Irish racing action

There’s an eight-race card at Limerick Junction this evening.

The Dermot Weld-trained Massayan won his final two starts in 2016 and he looks sure to be sent off favourite for the feature event – the €20,000 Follow @TipperaryRaces On Twitter Rated Race at 6.40.

Pat Smullen’s mount faces just four rivals and his main danger could be Onlyhuman from the Eddie Lynam stable who was successful on his most recent start at Gowran Park.

There is €16,000 worth of prize-money up for grabs in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Maiden (5.40) where the newcomer Brevard is an intriguing runner for Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen.

The first is off at 5.05
