The Tony Martin trained Cheltenham Festival runner-up Edeymi bounced back to form with a win at Dundalk this evening, landing the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Maiden (div 1) under Rory Cleary.

Cleary raced the son of Barathea in mid-division before making progress entering the straight. Edeymi (runner-up in last year's Fred Winter Hurdle at Cheltenham) moved to the front over a furlong out defeating Zip Wire and Manuka.

Martin later stated “he was a bit disappointing the last few times but it was down to the ground. Hopefully the ground will dry out a bit in the next month or so and he can go back hurdling.”

Insurance uncertainty delays racing

Racing was delayed by nearly three-quarters-of-an-hour at Dundalk this evening due to a dispute over insurance cover for stalls’ handlers.
