There has been sustained support for Takashi Kodama's two runners at Dundalk this evening.

Hanamizuki (7.30), a newcomer by Motivator, has been backed from 12/1 into 8/1 to make a winning debut under Declan McDonagh while Aaronkayzo (8.30) has tumbled in price from 20/1 into 7/1 for the second division of the Irish Stablestaff Handicap.

< Aaronkayzo is making his handicap debut after 425 days off the track.

Thebarberkelly (8.00) is another to attract strong support at Dundalk this evening. The Peter McCreery trained 5-y-o has not run on the flat since October last year and has shown little in two recent outings over hurdles, but is now as short as 7/1 from opening quotes of 33/1 this morning.
