  • FERGALBIRRANE

    Mayo trainer Fergal Birrane has had a tremendous winter at Dundalk from his base at Killala Bay, and made the four-and-a-half hour journey well worthwhile as the Denis Linehan-partnered Rock On Dandy gave the stable their seventh winner over the winter on the polytrack in the ASM Chartered Accountants Race.

    The son of Rajsaman made light of the step up to 2 miles as he was given a very patient ride by Denis Linehan, made up his ground stylishly to challenge inside the final furlong and quickened up nicely to beat Zaofu by two-and-a-quarter lengths.

    Fergal currently has seven horses in training at their base in Killala.

    He told Midwest Sport last night they knew Rock on Dandy was well able for the mile and a half.
