Casualty claims Dundalk cash

Rory Cleary

The Damian English-trained Cash Or Casualty (4-1) claimed a fourth career success on the polytrack at Dundalk.

Beaten by the reopposing He's Got Rhythm when attempting to complete a hat-trick at the start of the month, the five-year-old reversed the form with a hard-fought victory under Rory Cleary.

A flood of money before the start saw Indian Landing sent off a warm favourite but he didn't get the smoothest run and was forced to challenge three-wide as front-runner Cash Or Casualty kicked clear on the turn into the straight.

The veteran performer Collingwood came from the pack to narrow the deficit to a neck in the dying strides, but Cleary's mount held on in tenacious fashion.

English said: "I was raging when it was called off on Friday as he was in great form and he is in again here next Wednesday.

"He is so uncomplicated, he jumps and goes and we are not going to change the way we run him now.

"I have six in training at the moment and I like them all, they are nice types."
