Dazzling Susie is unlikely to run at Galway Festival

DAZZLING Susie is unlikely to run at the Galway Festival after her second wide-margin success over fences at Kilbeggan on Monday.

John Phelan's mare routed a decent field which included Cheltenham Festival winner Carlito Brigante.

The switch to fences appears to have brought about masses of improvement in the seven-year-old, who only won one of her nine starts over hurdles.

"She's come out of the race great and she's in top form but I don't know where we'll go now, we'll have to have a think," said Phelan.

"She was very impressive - she's improved so much for the switch to fences.

"I think she'll have a month off. I'm not sure if Galway would be the place for her, she likes big galloping tracks and Galway might be a bit sharp.

"She's very, very good and I've no doubt come the winter everyone will get to see just how good she is."
