Very well organised race at a goid price with good spread afterwards but not a course for a fast time since they changed the course a few years back.

I don't know I found the course very fair. Last year they had 8 under 68 minutes. Comparing that to Charleville which I think most would consider a fast if not thee fastest course only had 1, 7 this year. Waterford didn't seem to get the same field this year presumably with it being so close to the European cross country and Dublin.
