If Mick Winters' popular mare For Bill fulfils her engagement in the Grade Three mares' chase at Clonmel on Thursday, she could well leave behind a couple of recent disappointments.

Third behind Blazing Tempo on her reappearance in the race in 2010, the Donie Sheahan-owned mare again needed her first outing when second at Listowel this time around.

She subsequently ran poorly in the Munster National but for whatever reason, Limerick has never suited her. Back on a track where she has won twice previously, For Bill ought to take plenty beating at Clonmel.
