RAZLDAZL MONARCH ON TOP ONCE AGAIN

Barry Drake

RAZLDAZL MONARCH (Makeshift-Razldazl Pru) put in the kind of performance that would delight any owner or trainer when taking home the €3,000 John & Mary Killeacle Dowling Memorial at Tralee track on Friday night.

Trained by Neilus O'Connell for owners the Kildare-Kilcolgan-Syndicate, the 6-4 joint-favourite proving yet again he was the quickest in the event with another magnificent winning performance. He wasn't the quickest from traps but he had the early pace to lead soon after the opening corner. Running up to his best, he went on a record a length victory from Rockburst Mike, in quickest of the competition, a brilliant, 30.92. They were seven lengths clear of Ardfert Rooster who was back in third.
