We were thrilled with Surrounding’s success at Galway yesterday.  This is her 3rd listed win to go with her Group 3 success.  She has improved throughout the season and is really on top of her game at the moment.  Owner/breeder the Newells get great enjoyment from her wins and there is nowhere better than Galway.


We have just one runner this evening, Miss Snossyboots in the Guinness Handicap.  She had a great winter, winning three times in Dundalk and added a fourth win on the turf earlier in the season.  Her last 2 runs were disappointing, she has had a little break and we are very pleased with her work at the moment.  This is a competitive race as you would expect for the prize fund.  We are reasonably drawn in seven and we are looking forward to a big run.

Sunday – Galway

3.55        KATIYMANN                      RONAN WHELAN

Katiymann is our only runner on Sunday when he takes his chances in the Ahonoora 7 furlong Handicap.  He is well drawn in stall two and 7 furlongs and good ground look ideal for him.  He is a course and distance winner in the past and on his low draw and given his style of racing, he is going to need to be in luck.  If there is a strong pace I think he will run very well.
