One horse trainer David Geraghty has done a fine job with his Clare Harrier who completed a Dundalk double in the space of 28 days, in the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap.

Ridden by capable claimer Colin Keane, the son of Medecis was produced with his challenge late to eventually record a neck win over Alvar.

Geraghty, based in Garristown, Co Dublin later stated “over a mile he was probably a bit tapped for toe early but he runs to the line every time. He's in good form and we'll keep going if there's a race for him.”
