Great White Shark leads home double for Townend and Mullins

Great White Shark . . . a winner at Galway

Paul Townend guided the Willie Mullins trained Great White Shark to victory in the Guinness Handicap Hurdle at Galway this evening.

The six-year-old, owned by Malcolm Denmark, looked in control in her first run over jumps since the Cheltenham Festival. She won with odds of 5-1 by two lengths, defeating another Mullins trained horse My Sister Sarah (8-1).

Great White Shark won the amateur race in Galway last year - obviously a happy hunting crowd for the mare.
