Last week we increased the number of Shelbourne nominations from one. For this week at least, it is impossible to nominate less than three and even that excludes the Puppy Oaks winner Monrose.
The first of the trio is clearly Boylesports Champion Stakes winner Jaytee Yankee. Then how could you leave out the dog who went 28 spots quicker in the fastest 550 of the year, Clares Rocket? But then what of Lisacaha Brett, who recently ran third behind Airmount Tess in the Corn Cuchulainn but on Saturday won by 12 lengths in a 750 time only bettered once in the last five years?
Elsewhere, College Jade won the Waterford Guineas. New record holder Heisman continued his sparkling form with a 21.17 run in the Sprint Cup at Dundalk. Form students know that any runner breaking 19.00 for the Enniscorthy sprint is worth noting, even more so when it is a pup like Reckingball, who is actually the fastest over c&d in over two years.
Perhaps the performance of the week though goes to Laughil Fred who was just one spot outside Minnies Pavlova’s eight year old sprint clock at Thurles.
