Ronnie McKeown has found the key to success

By Robert Fenton

Trainer Ronnie McKeown holds the key to tonight's A3 final over 525 at Drumbo Park with his pup Ballydoyle Key, owned by wife Marina.

The black son of Kinloch Brae put in a very fetching display in winning his semi-final by an easy nine lengths from Roshure Paul in a brilliant 28.90.

A repeat of that would be more than good enough to account for Memyselfandi, the other semi-final winner.

Darfin Dancer is a top class sprinter when putting it all together and the Daryl McLaughlin Crossgar-based dog can take the measure of some solid opponents, including Lacken Jacksie who was a head in front of Dancer in August.
