Ground key to Shipyard fortunes

Shipyard will not run in the Irish Lincolnshire if the ground is very soft

Shipyard, ante-post favourite for the www.thetote.com Irish Lincolnshire at the Curragh on Sunday, could sidestep the race if the ground is very soft.

Andy Oliver's lightly-raced five-year-old also has the option of running in six-furlong handicap on the same card.

Oliver is worried that his stamina will be stretched to the limit if the ground rides testing, but still hopes the weather enables him to run in the first big handicap of the Irish Flat season.

"He's a horse with limited experience," said the County Tyrone handler.

"He handled soft last year but I think he's more a speed horse and soft ground will limit his stamina.

"Last season he was second over a mile in soft ground so he does actually handle it but he'd more more effective on better ground.

"I'd still say it's more than likely that he'll run."
