Limiti De Greccio

Limiti Di Greccio was impressive in winning the seven-furlong juvenile fillies’ maiden at Leopardstown last Thursday. Smartly away from her wide draw, she travelled well up on the outside of her field just behind the leaders. Three or four wide around the home turn, she made nice progress for Billy Lee to move into third place as they straightened up, and she picked up well from there, she joined Kerkiyra and Voice Of Angels on the run to the furlong marker and she kept on strongly to get up and win by just over a length.

This was just Limiti Di Greccio’s third run ever, and it was her first since she joined Paddy Twomey. She had shaped well on her second and final run for John Kinsella, when she finished second behind Corviglia at Leopardstown three weeks earlier, and this was a nice step forward from that. She had to go wider than ideal for most of the way from her wide draw, but she still appeared to win with more than the bare winning margin in hand. Her trainer mentioned the Ingabelle Stakes as a potential next target, the Listed juvenile fillies’ race over Thursday’s course and distance that opens proceedings on Irish Champions’ Weekend, and that would be a good target for her. She also holds entries in the Rockfel Stakes at Newmarket over seven furlongs and in the Cheveley Park over six, and that gives an indication of the regard in which she is held by connections.
