    She may or may not get the entry but it looks more than likely that Shanning will miss Cheltenham and go to the Irish festivals.

    I believe there's a chance that Salsaretta may go to Cheltenham after all Archie?

    I hadn't seen them, but I guess that confirms that it would still be in their minds. If she performs we could see a market shake up.

    Cut the Mustard in Lauriba's second colours did a Golden Freeze on maria's Benefit .

    The winner was immensely impressive but I do not approve of this race . Laurina should have been in the Supreme.

    Until she takes on the boys, she won't become properly relevant.

    Willie mentioned Fairyhouse G1
    Some people say heís the best since Arkle and thatís certainly true when you look at what heís done

    Happy enough with the 3/1 after the race and happy to go in again now.

    Time to bet like men etc etc

    Apologies for gloating - no one likes it - but this was the quality call. On a high after missing out on the race live.

    Just watch the race. I agree.

    Laurina was handed that race on a plate.

    Nice mare. Crap race.

    Top call from HW.

    Did a Golden Freeze alright but any idea that Maria's Benefit would have worried Laurina is fantasy. Mullins and Walsh haven't been able to hide what they think of Laurina in the run up to the festival. I hope there are doubters. Cap Soleil was rated 136, came from further back in the field, and was beaten by 18l.

    I think Maria’s Benefit did something funny after the last-maybe cocked her jaw or tried to pull up.

    was pulling her head all over the place early as well. i don't even think sending cut the mustard alongside her to ruffle her up is even worth mentioning here. just concentrate on a highly promising winner.

    who will mop up the next 4 mares hurdles to everyone's disgust
