"His owner, Paul Rooney is from Castlewellan in County Down and he loves having runners here and he's been exceptionally patient with this fellow."
< Alvar (Shane Foley up, also rode the earlier Halford winner, Senyuman) was backed from around 3/1 this morning into 7/4 and despite being a bit keen he had plenty left to offer at the business end, in front well over a furlong out on the way to beating Black N Brew by a length.
Another couple of horses that were lively in the market were The Tally Ho Kid, as big as 9s this morning into 7/2, beat only one home, whilst Baffles Brains (20s into 10s) had to settle for eighth.
Alvar's success meant that one investor scooped the Jackpot pool of nearly twenty one and a half thousand Euros. The dividend was over 16K. (MG & EM)
