Hamilton to double up on the Downpatrick Dynamic


Backed: Gordon Elliott is taken to maintain strike rate at Downpatrick
Backed: Gordon Elliott is taken to maintain strike rate at Downpatrick

By Ron McKnight

Dynamic Allen, trained beside the track, is taken to record back-to-back victories in the Downpatrick handicap hurdle tonight.

Trained by Brian Hamilton, the selection travelled with ease prior to scoring earlier this month and the penalty is nullified by rider Declan Lavery's claim.

The McManus owned pair, Aa Bee See and Everlastingpromise, warrant consideration. However, Monition, a runner-up at the course last time, can provide the biggest danger, while the locally trained British Art has place claims.

The opening maiden hurdle supplies one of the best bets tonight with the Gordon Elliott trained Batts Rock, runner up in a superior Punchestown race, the choice with Davy Russell on board, and Ificudiwud the danger.

Thatbeatsbanagher, Classic Concorde and Manomine look the trio to focus on in the Adare Manor Hurdle for claiming riders and the first named, trained by Enda Bolger, is preferred while Bracka Lily could fare best of Draperstown trainer Noel Kelly's duo of runners.

Pegase Amour, Pat's Pearl, Thisonesforollie, along with the Gavin Cromwell pair Top Of The Charts and Le Braye, make most appeal in the beginners chase, with Thisonesforollie taken to deny Le Braye.

The Enda Bolger trained Blue Templar, following dual victories in hunter chases at Punchestown, can readily step up to handicap company with success here. Canadian Steel can complete the forecast.

The hunter chase, in memory of the late, legendary Downpatrick rider Frankie Fitzsimmons, can provide a local winner with Hi Murphy. The selection represents Cabra trainer Sean McParland and has been progressive in points. Krisquin and Pyrios, a winner last weekend at Templepatrick, supply the threats.

Global Society, Tecumseh, Belper Rose and the Joseph O'Brien trained pair, Centaur and Measured, form the short list in the concluding bumper.

Global Society and Centaur filled second and fourth at Down Royal - however the former is taken to reserve placings.

√ WITH Caution catches the eye on her turf debut in Haydock's Joanne Kelly 50th Birthday Handicap.

James Tate's filly began her career in winning style at Lingfield in January, and duly followed up over this same six-furlong trip at Wolverhampton a month later.

She was backed to bring up the hat-trick back at Dunstall Park in March, but found one too good in Pass The Vino. Neither winner nor second has run since. But, after her break, With Caution has shown enough already to suggest she should be effective on her first step into handicap company.

Show Me Show Me can return to winning ways in the EBF Stallions VW Centre (Leeds) Ltd Youngsters Conditions Stakes at Pontefract after disappointing at Chester.

Richard Fahey's two-year-old had looked promising to say the least when landing the Brocklesby Stakes on his debut at Doncaster.

However, ground conditions did not appear to suit at Chester when he reappeared in the Lily Agnes Stakes - although he was still a fair fifth behind Great Dame, beaten a length and three-quarters. Trying six furlongs could bring out further improvement.

The lightly-raced Spark Of War may prove well-treated at a decent price for in-form trainer Keith Dalgleish in the Constant Security Services Handicap at Pontefract.
