Poitin popular at Dundalk again

Poitin was all the rage again at Dundalk tonight for Meath trainer Keith Clarke when winning an apprentice ahndicap for jockey Robbie Downey.

Formerly trained in England, this was Poitin's fourth win at Dundalk for Clarke and Downey for the Phoenix Bloodstock Syndicate - Poitin won this race 12 months ago also.

"I've put her into a two-mile amateur handicap next Friday. I got an amateur licence recently and may ride her myself," the trainer commented in an interview with irishracing.com.

Gordon Elliott's Don Cossack will be a major attraction at the post-racing traditional pre-Cheltenham gallops at Leopardstown on Sunday.

Elliott has confirmed Don Cossack will appear along with RSA Chase entry, No More Heroes.
