MANDOLIN AND ALDO MOVE WELL IN DUNDALK TRIALS

Ian Fortune

There were a couple of notable trials at Dundalk on Friday evening ahead of the Time Dundalk International and upcoming Bar One Racing Irish Sprint Cup.

Droopys Mandolin had another spin over 525yds ahead of a potential crack at the International and moved well to post 28.41, a single spot faster than seven days earlier.

Reigning Irish Sprint Cup champion Carrick Aldo also moved ell in a trial, clocking 21.09 for the 400yd trip. Clearly, the plan is to attempt a defense of his title. The lightly raced and hugely promising Crokers Sydney also moved well over the sprint trip, posting 21.12.
