Review dundalk 17th Feb

< Togoville gave an excellent exhibition of sustained speed to land another Dundalk success in the GAIN Handicap.

Georgios Pakidis' gallant grey had been largely out of sorts this winter but had six previous victories at this venue and was bustled into the lead from his wide draw by Declan McDonogh.

He looked a sitting duck halfway down the straight but was in no mood to be passed and sprung a 20-1 surprise by a length and a quarter, with Shepherd's Purse second and Oneoveryou third.

Oisin Orr rode Sheisdiesel with supreme confidence to claim top honours in the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa Handicap.

The 4-1 shot turned in still anchored in rear but made rapid headway on the bridle before Orr switched her inside horses, and she picked off Sweetasever and Hailstone to beat the latter by three-quarters of a length.< Remember The Days made a successful start to his career in the Print Express Maiden.

The Joseph O'Brien-trained 14-1 chance was brought with his challenge down the centre of the track by Donnacha O'Brien and although Allography wouldn't go down without a fight, Remember The Days had just enough up his sleeve to prevail by half a length.

Joseph O'Brien followed up when Ligeti (5-2) landed division two of the Contract Floor Coverings Handicap, with division one going to War Room (13-2) for Shane Duffy, giving Jonathan Burke his first success on the level.

O'Brien completed a treble thanks to Song Of Love s triumph in the Racing Post Handicap.

The 5-1 chance has been so consistent during a busy winter campaign but showed no sign of that catching up with him as he wore down Duchessofflorence in the closing stages.< Palavicini Run (10-1) finished strongly to run down Strategic Heights in the Fast Shipping Ireland Ltd. Handicap, while Tony Martin's newcomer Share The Honour (9-2) took the Elusive Pimpernel Maiden.
