PERSONAL SHOPPER had shown absolutely nothing over hurdles and fences before making all for a hard-fought victory over timber at Sligo on Sunday. She reverts to fences on a 6lb lower mark than for that success and providing it hasn't taken its toll she can complete a quick double. Dante Anna is hardly the most consistent of performers but she couldn't have been more impressive at Kilbeggan and in that kind of mood would take some beating. Rudigreen scored over fences at Sedgefield last week and was only just touched off on his latest start over timber at this track so has to be considered but Talab seems better over fences these days.
