Three For Dundalk Tonight

Posted on December 6, 2019

The horses remain in very good form and we had another winner during the week with Spelga, which maintains our good strike rate up there and my thoughts on tonight’s runners are below. 5.15  Arcanears (Ronan Whelan) He handles the surface well for a horse that likes an ease in the ground and he won well the last night. He …

Two For Dundalk Today

We have just the two runners at Dundalk today.  I won’t be there as I will be attending the AGM of the Trainers Association. 1.55 SPELGA (Ronan Whelan) Spelga is going for a three timer which can often be difficult to do.  He has gone up a total of 16lbs for his wins but he has been progressing and his …

An easy night tonight in Dundalk with just two runners in the first two races. 5.15 HIEROGLYPHIC (Niall McCullagh) Hieroglyphic ran a lovely race first time out to finish second in a competitive maiden.  She is taking on the colts tonight but she should be up to it and she is well drawn in four.  Our horses usually improve for …

I am expecting an improved performance from her tonight and …

Busy Evening at Dundalk with Seven Runners

Posted on November 8, 2019

Firstly I was delighted to win a race with Spelga for Paul Rooney. I’ve said it many times before about Paul’s patience and once more Spelga is a typical example on his tenth run to win.
