Ideal Pal registered a sixth career winner and a first of the year at Gowran today, landing the Download BoyleSports App Apprentice Handicap for trainer Mick Mulvany and jockey Wesley Joyce.
The son of Mulvaney's high class colt-turned-stallion Tough As Nails won three times in 2019, twice in 2020 and today scored by half a length from Sheila.
Mulvany later stated “the handicapper has dropped him down a few pounds and given him a chance.
“He’s entered at Listowel next week - he won there last year and I’d be hoping to bring him back.
“I was worried that the ground would be a bit on the fast side but the rain helped him.”
