DAWN SHADOW (Dot Love) Snug winner of a two and a half miles maiden hurdle, she can prosper at a higher level if kept to mares races, and three miles shouldn’t be a problem.
DE PLOTTING SHED (Gordon Elliott) Had to give best in the end to a superb Presenting Percy but clearly has quite a future over the larger obstacles.
EARLY DOORS (Joseph O’Brien) A competent rather than highly efficient start over hurdles but make no mistake this lad has plenty under the bonnet.
GENIE IN A BOTTLE (Noel Meade) Game and classy winner of a Listed Chase at Wexford. Possibly just didn’t get the trip in the four miler at Cheltenham last March – maybe lost out in the Gigginstown shuffling of the Festival pack – and won’t mind better ground.
JUST JANICE (John Kiely) Has had a very productive week, winning at Galway on Monday and a mares graded race at Down Royal yesterday. Plenty more in the pipeline.
PRESENTING PERCY (Pat Kelly) Represents a trainer who punches way above his weight at Cheltenham, this Pertemps winner had RSA stamped all over him when beating a top class field at Galway. “He was like a balerina” Davy Russell said in admiration. Praise indeed.
SHATTERED LOVE (Gordon Elliott) Not put off by a bad first fence error at Clonmel on Thursday, she settled down to comfortably win a mares chase, beating decent yardstick Miss Eye-catcher.
* Yet another good week for the Declan O’Donoghue Irish Racing Service as winners included Bid Adieu 12/1; Larchmont Lad 10/1 (won 8/1); Flag Of Honour 7/2 (w 2/1); No Pressure Pat 3/1; Without Limites 9/4 (w 4/6) and Twobeelucky 9/4.
