Two For Dundalk Tonight

Posted on February 14, 2020

While both horses ran well in Meydan last night, Surrounding ran really well and saw out the trip really well when fourth in the Gr2 Balanchine.  She may have one more run before she returns home. Unfortunately the draw came against Massif Central and he just got shunted back through the field.  He was a long way back turning in …

Two for Meydan Tonight

Posted on February 13, 2020

I arrived out to Dubai on Tuesday and I am delighted to see the horses in such good order – Robbie and Adam are both doing a great job.  The owners both have travelled out also and we are enjoying a couple of days in the sun, which is in sharp contrast to the weather at home.  We just have …

Two For Dundalk Tonight

Posted on February 7, 2020

We had no runners this week in Dubai.  We will run Massif Central in a handicap and Surrounding in a Gr2 Fillies & Mares next week.  I intend to travel to see them.  The report on them from the lads are positive and Tadgh O’Shea is due to sit on them on Sunday morning.  Unfortunately Ronan is suspended so he …

Two For Dundalk This Evening

We are back with a couple of runners at Dundalk tonight and my thoughts on them are below. Both Surrounding and Simsir ran well in Dubai last night.

Ronan and I travelled over to Dubai last night – we arrived here this morning, as we run both Surrounding and Simsir later today. The horses look fantastic and the lads over here have done a fantastic job and the horses are thriving over here. Massif Central has come out of his run last week in great shape and we’ll …

Six for Dundalk Tonight

Posted on January 24, 2020

We are back at Dundalk tonight with six runners and my thoughts on them are below, but beforehand, I was thrilled with Massif Central who finished second last night on his first start at The Carnival in Dubai. He hit the line well and apart from Surrounding who was found to be in season after she ran last week, both …

Dubai Carnival tonight Massif Central

Posted on January 23, 2020

We are back racing at the Carnival in Dubai tonight when Massif Central takes his chance in a valuable handicap and my thoughts on him are below. In the meantime, reflecting back on this day last week, we were disappointed with Surrounding in the Cape Verdi. I sensed beforehand when I was saddling her, that was a bit quiet in …
