Seanie back in Dundalk action
06 Mar 2015 13:01
David Marnane's Seanie will return to action in the Carragher's XL Castleblaney Race at Dundalk on Friday evening.
-
The one-mile contest is a fast-track qualifier for All-Weather Championship Finals Day and is one of two races of its type at the Irish track.
-
Marnane's six-year-old was in great heart at the end of last season with wins at Listowel and Tipperary and he signed off with a decent run at Listed level.
-
However, Marnane believes the fact some of his rivals have race fitness on their side will make them hard to beat.
-
"Seanie is going to take his chance on Friday. His preparation has gone very well but it is his first start of the season," said Marnane.
-
"We have elected to run him here because it is a qualifier, but I think he will be hard-pressed to beat Glory Awaits and Captain Joy.
-
"Seanie is coming back from a break whereas Captain Joy has been winning well and Glory Awaits is clearly very talented."
-
Gordon Lord Byron holds an entry but trainer Tom Hogan said earlier in the week his globetrotter is an unlikely runner.
