Dandy Boy

Dandy Boy’s most recent success came at Meydan in January 2011, when he broke the seven-furlong track record and despite some disappointing efforts since, he warmed up for this with a solid second behind Glor Na Mara in a mile handicap at the Curragh on May 26.

Marnane said: “Dandy Boy has always been a horse with plenty of speed and we ran him over a mile last time so he would switch off out the back. He came here in the best form we have had him in for a long long time.

“He broke the track record at Meydan over seven furlongs and then he picked up injury so it has taken a while to get him back again. I’m delighted for the horse and his owner because he is a big supporter of mine.

Dobbs said: “The plan was to drop him in and take my time as he can be a bit keen if you are too far forward, but he settled good and went through the field very well.

“I even got there a little bit too soon but I would have been cut off if I didn’t go when I did. There were plenty of horses on the inside and there would have probably been traffic problems.

“I have been looking forward to having a winner here for a long time and it’s nice to get one.”

Waffle
SECOND AGAIN FOR BERRY AND WAFFLE

Fran Berry, who rode the consistent Waffle into second place for the second year running in the Wokingham Handicap, reflected afterwards: “ It is very unfortunate (to be second again) he’s run a super race, Mr Barron (rainer) said he is in equally as good form this year as last. He travelled strongly all the way, with the plan to come late. We came through and won the race on our side but not the race overall. But what can you do, he’s just unlucky as he is genuine but needs cover through the race.”

Jim Goldie, who trained third home Hawkeyethenoo, said: “I’m delighted with him, it is tough race. I suppose we will come back here with him next month.”

Peter Makin’s charge, Morachee Music, came fourth. The trainer said: “It was a good run and for a second I thought we might get second but it wasn’t to be. He has run twice in a week now but he is a tough cookie and we will see how he comes out of the race.”
