SOME OFFICER was racing on quick ground for the first time when chasing home King Shabra at Listowel and the improving six-year-old looks set to gain his first victory. Sunsetstorise was pulled out of a race at Gowran because the ground was deemed too fast so a drop of rain would aid his cause as he'd run well on testing ground here earlier. Our Maimie showed improved form at Ffos Las last month but may do better over further while Flanagans Field didn't appreciate the quick going at Wexford after a fair debut on much softer ground.
