John Geoghegan is looking forward to a summer campaign with Chateau Musar who has progressed really well on the all-weather at Dundalk winning three times this winter.

The Maynooth trainer only has a couple of horses in training at present, and Silk Cravat showed there is still plenty of fire in his belly at the age of eight when scoring at Dundalk on Friday.

Lady Boomerang also won for Geoghegan at Cork in August but it is Chateau Musar that really has him excited having won three of his latest five starts under Chris Hayes, the latest of which came on the Polytrack last Wednesday.

“Every run he’s improving. He was mentally very immature, a bit of a stupid horse really, but the more runs he’s getting the better he’s getting,” said Geoghegan.

“He’s gone up 6lb (to a mark of 69) and I don’t think there is really anything for him in Dundalk but he could be a lovely horse for the grass. He could do with a little break and I’d say nice ground on the grass would be the ideal for him.

“Chris can’t wait to get him on the grass so hopefully we’ll have a good season with him.”
