4.45 Shamiyan (Paul Townend)
Looking forward to our first runner of the week in Galway today. This is our first runner over jumps in Galway for a long time. I was very pleased with Shamiyan’s first run over hurdles in Roscommon recently. It was a big ask first time out to follow around experienced handicappers. I thought he jumped well and finished out his race nicely to finish 3rd. He was given a lovely ride by Simon Torrens. He stepped forward in his work since and I expect him to show the benefit of that run. I’m looking forward to a good run from him.
