Both Simsir and Massif Central arrived home safely from Dubai during the week.  They will both have a short break now before resuming training.  They both look terrific and I am sure they will benefit from their visit to Dubai.

Surrounding meanwhile is still there and she takes her chance tomorrow in the Jebel Hatta (Group 1) at Meydan.  This looks a very competitive race as you would expect.  We have been pleased with the way Surrounding has been training and she is coming forward well in herself since her last run.  It would be a great effort if she could manage to finish in the first four.  She is due to return to Ireland next week.

It is a quiet night in Dundalk tonight with only one runner.

7.15 KERANDI (Ronan Whelan)

He is a lovely colt be Champs Elysees and a half-brother to Karasi who was a course and distance winner.  He is a colt we like and he should run a good race.  He will be benefit for the run.
