Sarah hoping Megans Legacy can make her mark at Handicap at Dundalk

By Frank Brownlow

Ulster trainer Sarah Dawson would love to land a knockout blow with Megans Legacy in the Get 10/1 On Conor McGregor To Win At Handicap at Dundalk.

And in a tough contest, Megans Legacy - drawn in six - represents each-way value.

"I hoped she would have a better draw but will be disappointed if she's not in the frame," said Sarah, who is based near Banbridge.

Ross Coakley is in the saddle on board a horse familiar with Dundalk but with a habit of finishing in mid division.

Crazy Tornado, a winner at the venue last month, is the one they all have to beat.

There is a Fast-track qualifier for All-Weather Championships Finals Day at Dundalk, where Mandatario comes back sharply in trip for the Race.

Jim Bolger's five-year-old is fully effective under the floodlights at the Polytrack venue and was recently seen winning over two miles. An extended 10 furlongs is the ask this time and second guessing Bolger is never the way to go, so he is the one to be with.

Taweyla has taken well to obstacles and her jumping can be the key in the BetBright Casino Mares Handicap Hurdle at Doncaster.

Pam Sly's charge is two from three since going hurdling and is expected to handle better ground than she faced when winning in clear-cut fashion at Kempton.

She was returning from a lengthy break having won at Worcester last May before having to settle for third when switched from mares to open company at Huntingdon.

Taweyla should be able to handle a subsequent 8lb hike.

Coologue has run some excellent races at the South Yorkshire track and should win the BetBright Novices Chase.

Star of the show at Newbury is likely to be Hell's Kitchen in the RR Elite Novices Hurdle.
