3 For Dundalk Tonight

He was purchased after his first run …

We run Gougane Barra in the mile handicap at 7.30 and it was great see him win 2 weeks ago for his owner Paul Rooney, who has had to be very patient with him. He had to overcome a poor draw to win last time, but he did it well and the handicapper gave him 9lbs for that, so he …
