Come back and race again.

That was the case with Great White Shark who finished 7th on Monday and came back to win the Galway Guiness Handicap Hurdle on Friday.  Willie Mullins put Paul Townend on (although he was not shown as the original jockey) and they won ahead of stablemate My Sister Sarah who was partnered by Rachael Blackmore.  Flooring Porter was third and Diamond Hill fourth.

Saturday sees another repeater but a winner already in Princess Zoe who is returning after winning the Connacht Hotel on Monday, the race Great White Shark was 7th in.  She's on 11/2 with Mick Halford's War Diary on the same quote.  Emperor of the Sun and Memorabilis are both on 10/1.
