Balbriggan based Damien English recorded his third career success when his Cash Or Casualty claimed another notable scalp in the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Handicap at Dundalk this evening < Cash Or Casualty has provided English with each of his wins todate and, having already provided the 27 year old trainer with a win at the Galway Festival, spoiled the party when defeating Champion Trainer's Aidan O'Brien's first runner of 2013, Ahimsa, this evening.

Ridden by good claimer Shane Gray, Cash Or Casualty (14/1) made all to eventually edge out Ahimsa (3/1f) by a nose.

Afterwards English said “he's a very consistent horse – that's three wins and three seconds in 18 months! “He is a mile and a quarter horse who doesn't settle and will come back here at the end of the month for a race over seven furlongs or a mile.”
