In recent weeks we have enjoyed a fine run of form with three winners from a very limited numbers of runners. Classic Concorde demolished the field in a sixteen length romp at Kilbeggan, he will have a short break before being aimed at another 3m event at Sligo in August.
Mandarin Monarch has been a stable favourite for a while now, he collected for the fifth time since joining the yard under Dillon Maxwell and will now be aimed at the Galway festival. He is owned by the enthusiastic Red or Black Syndicate who themselves are Galway based and are very keen on Ballybrit. He will have plenty options there, the ideal would be a tilt at the €80,000 2m handiap hurdle on Friday if he gets in.
Dream Point kept the ball rolling providing success for the Boyne Valley Syndicate under a cool ride from Colin Keane in a Claiming event. That was her fifth outing for the yard but will now be under the care of Denis Hogan after being claimed by owner James McCauley.
For anyone looking to get involved in a horse that could provide plenty entertainment the handsome Zoffalee fits that bill. An impressive 9 length hurdle winner at Ballinrobe with plenty more to offer.
A liking for good ground could see him mix it on the flat over the summer, while he has already schooled well with plenty scope over fences and will no doubt succeed there also.

May Peace Prevail has been sold to continue his career in Australia. The beautiful Dragon Pulse colt beat 96 rated filly Hazel Bay when winning his maiden at Dundalk in February. He was very good work horse and stayed 1m2f well, hopefully he will have a bright future for new connections and could just be a name we will hear more about.
Robbie McNamara picked him out at the Tattersalls September Yearling Sale and one is just one of a string of winners he found from a small number of purchases. That string included subsequent Grade 1 Royal Bond winner Quick Grabim.
Here at Andy McNamara Racing we are delighted to announce the launch of our new website. Designed and managed by the team at 'p2p.ie', we are hoping the site will provide a fantastic insight into what we do, the facilities we have at our disposal, the team behind it all and how to get involved. While it will also enable us to keep everybody up to date with the latest news from Andy Mc Racing.
While it was disappointing to get chinned on the line, we were delighted by the performance of Very Excellent on his most recent start at Clonmel. The 3yo son of Casamento had no sooner out battled favorite Elite Trooper Grey when well fancied Kastasa came with a late run for the in-form Weld yard.
This is a very athletic horse who has taken to jumping with relish. He has been sold to stay in the yard and we think he could be very nice to look forward to as a dual-purpose prospect.
