Dundalk Fri, 29th Nov, 2019
Dash D'or She just got it on the nod. I thought we were beaten again as we were second here last week (with Polly Douglas). She had been off form but was working well leading up to this race. She had a few issues and it just took a while to get them ironed out. She was sixth in this race last year off 6lb higher and beaten three lengths so we thought she would go very close. Nathan gave her a great ride as she is not straightforward.

Strong Johnson We're delighted with that. We thought he had improved a nice bit from Down Royal, he's just a big raw backward horse,. We felt he had improved sufficiently enough to win this. I know the other horse (Son And Sannie) was fancied, and had a good run in the Curragh, but this lad is smart enough. Hopefully he'll be able to compete in some of the better handicaps next year. Colin thinks he'll still improve more and hopefully we'll have a good bit of fun with him. His full-sister runs in the next and hopefully we can do the double, we're half way there!. Colin seems to think he'd handle Dundalk so we'll have a look at the calendar. He's had a very easy year.
