Have faith in Angel

Rose Angel, in the care of Peter Casey, best known as the trainer of Flemenstar and for a colourful RTÉ interview with Tracy Piggott, can land the bookings@dundalkstadium.com Median Auction Maiden on the all-weather tonight.

She only hinted at having ability when 8th of 14 at Dundalk in November, before reappearing back here a week ago.

The daughter of Dark Angel performed well enough to indicate a little contest such as this was within her compass.

Soon in front, it was only in the closing stages she gave best to finish a close fourth behind Calissa. Dropping back a furlong in trip now should work in the selection’s favour.

Eddie Lynam’s Akasaka can provide the solution to the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey And Trainer Championship Race.

He was a bit disappointing when only third to Steps To Freedom and Ozeta here two weeks ago, but ran with the choke out for far too much of the journey.

Gordon Elliott’s Silverlord, fifth behind Salam Alaykum at Dundalk last time, gets the nod in the Rory O’Connor Apprentice Handicap.
