    Info IRISH LINCOLNSHIRE HANDICAP TRENDS 2014

    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Irish Lincolnshire Handicap takes place the Curragh on Sunday 23rd March and it marks the beginning of the flat season in Ireland. Generally run on testing ground, it can be tough to shoulder a high weight to victory and previous winning form on soft ground is a plus.

    No strong trends on prices, with 4 of the last 7 winners going off at 10/1 or shorter and the other 3 going off at 20/1 or bigger.
    Favourites (2-1-10) have won 2 of last 10 runnings, giving a level stakes loss of 0.50.
