Letters hits right note at Dundalk
30 Jan 2015 22:10
Letters Of Note looks a filly of some potential after cruising home in the Elusive Pimpernel Fillies Maiden at Dundalk. Maira took the field along and had built up a clear lead, but Emmet McNamara was still motionless as the Michael O'Callaghan-trained 4-6 favourite breezed alongside her and pushed clear, eventually recording a five-length verdict over the running-on Period Piece. Michael Hussey's rail-hugging ride on Indian Landing paid dividends as he repelled all challengers in the Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Handicap. Tracy Collins' 7-2 chance tracked the leaders early on and shot into the lead after the turn for home, before holding Togoville half a length at bay. Hussey made it a double when driving Charles O'Brien's Mount Flora (12-1) home in the Winter Racing At Dundalk Handicap. Sheeba finished with a flourish to land the Follow Dundalk On Facebook Handicap. David Marnane's 11-8 favourite was slow out of the gates, but he was anything but slow in the final stages, coming with a withering late run under Connor King to defeat Rest Assured by a head. Sar Oiche showed plenty of tenacity to get off the mark in the Mary Bourke 70th Birthday Maiden. Jim Bolger's filly recovered from getting a smack on the nose by a rival's whip to get on terms with fellow 11-4 joint-favourite Viaduct Joey, before finding more than that rival to prevail by a head under Kevin Manning. Gary Carroll found the line coming just in time on Boughtforasong in the Handicap, the 4-1 chance just managing to hold off the late surge of Acroleina by a short-head. Donnacha O'Brien found every door closed on favourite Bishan Bedi in the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey And Trainer Championship Handicap, meaning he could only finish fourth behind John Geoghegan's The Dancing Lord (8-1), who edged the verdict under Dylan Hogan. Corker Hill (17-2) ran out a convincing winner of the Fundraising Made Easy At Dundalk Stadium Rated Race for trainer Noel Lawlor and jockey Derek McCormack.
