Lady Marengo If you discounted her last run at Dundalk when she was beaten over 20 lengths and patently didn't take to the place at all she had a chance,. Her run at Tipperary was encouraging and the race has worked out quite well. The third won a nursery at the Curragh. It was a tidy contest and Niall (McCullagh) was happy with her on the day. If we could just trust that she'd get back to her Tipperary form we were giving her a chance. Wayne like her attitude and she seemed to relish the hill. When he gave her a few smacks she really saw the trip out well and I'd say seven furlongs will be no problem to her. She's a clean winded filly with a bit of size and scope so hopefully she has a little bit of a future at a level. A nursery might be next and we'll see what the handicapper makes of it. These Foran series races are great for the likes of her as she was a cheaply bought filly and she received a lot of allowances. We'll see where we are with her before the final of the series as it's a nice pot. I must find out the conditions but if she was entitled to more allowances I'd say why not. We'll see closer to the time. That was only her third start so hopefully there is a bit to come from her.

Implement they went good and hard and it fell into his lap a bit. He had a bit done without having too much done for his first run and it probably wasn't the strongest race in the world but its nice to get a bracket with him. He'll definitely improve from it. I gave him a few thumps when it was there for the winning; usually you wouldn't be that hard on them first time out but when they are there for the taking you have to take them.
