Dessie Hughes is gunning for glory with Sarteano and Montero in the ladbrokes.com Munster National at Limerick on Sunday.

Both horses have had the benefit of a run already this autumn, Montero being prominent for some way in the Kerry National and Sarteano finishing second at Navan.



"The two of them run on Sunday. Santeano ran well in Navan and the other fellow ran a good race in the Kerry National," said the County Kildare trainer.



"I reckon Roger (Loughran) will be on Sarteano this time and Bryan Cooper will ride the other horse."
