Kano's Ghirl was on a very lowly mark when producing a shock at Navan where she made all over 6f. She's been raised 7lb and may not cope with fifth-placed Shinyhappyjohn, who started favourite after finishing in front of the winner over this trip at Tipperary earlier. SUBURBAN SKY was beaten just over 2l into fourth but that was only her fifth start and with the handicapper easing her slightly she's taken to gain her first success. Little Sweetheart beat Shinyhappyjohn at Cork in May though that was on soft ground and though Ability N Delivery is on his lowest mark for four years he hasn't been running well enough to consider.
