Dream week continues for Martin

first_img Martin said: “He needs to be ridden with confidence. Shane was very good on him – that was a Ruby Walsh or Paul Carberry job. “That’s the track for him, going up the hill and they are coming back to him. On quicker ground they don’t come back to you. “He’s a chaser in the making.” Slygufftou finished powerfully to land the Galway Shopping Centre Handicap Hurdle in the hands of Luke Dempsey. Michael McCullagh’s charge was turning out just nine days after opening his account under Rules at the 11th attempt at Wexford and was a 16-1 shot for this more competitive heat. The grey was never too far off the speed, but looked booked for minor honours as Harangue and Medinah Gold began to draw clear from the second-last. However, Medinah Gold was slow at the final obstacle and with Harangue beginning to tie up, Slygufftou stuck on admirably to come through and win by a length and three-quarters. McCullagh said: “This horse has given me a hard time at home but I forgive him all now. I was saying beforehand that I should have waited for Roscommon (on Tuesday). “I told young Dempsey to wait and wait and he did exactly as he was told.” Press Association Dollar And Dream provided Tony Martin with another Galway winner in the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Hurdle.center_img Having finished third in similar events at Tipperary and Limerick in the spring, the six-year-old was the 7-2 favourite for the opening contest on the final day of the week-long Festival at Ballybrit. Leading conditional Shane Shortall was happy to play the waiting game and Dollar And Dream remained nearer last than first jumping the second flight from the finish. However, he began to motor before the home bend to move into contention and knuckled down well from the last to beat Afatcat by three and a half lengths. last_img read more
