Shrewdoperator He loves heavy and loves jumping and I was just hoping the meeting would be on. Deep ground, on two miles and over big jumps is what he wants. He might now sneak into a big handicap off a low weight but if the ground isn't heavy he won't run. Mallow has been very lucky for me and all year I've had just ten runners but four winners. I've some very nice four year old horses to run this year and am in a much more fortunate situation than I was 18 months ago.

Definite Doyenne She'll run in another handicap at Naas next weekend and after having a summer break, will eventually go juvenile hurdling as she was well schooled over hurdles as a two year old,.

Shanklys Dawn She eventually got her luck. I thought she was going to win in Down Royal but she sort of got brought down at the second last. I ran her back in Thurles and it just came a bit quick for her. I went to Hereford for niceish ground and I got off the boat and it rained for 48 hours so eventually she got a bit of luck. I think with a bit of confidence she can follow up and win another chase. She's a summer mare and will tip away for the summer. I'm delighted for James Guilfoyle (owner, a Tipperary man) who is the most amazing owner and supporter and Adam (Short) gave her a very good ride, he was very positive on her the whole way.
