Put faith in War­rior

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT -

THE Michael Hal­ford­trained Plat­inum War­rior, pipped by The Kid Bobby B at Dun­dalk on his se­cond start, looks the banker bet in tonight’s one-mile maiden for two-year-olds in Dun­dalk.

That near miss five weeks ago fol­lowed a pleas­ing de­but ef­fort in a hot Cur­ragh maiden, won by sub­se­quent listed win­ner Gobi Desert. And the fact the Galileo colt was found to be lame after his more re­cent run sug­gests there’s more to come.

Suc­cess­ful three times here last win­ter, with a ca­reer high win­ning-mark 17lb higher than his cur­rent rat­ing, the Damien English­trained Red Avenger ap­peals in tonight’s 7.00.

He didn’t en­joy the best of luck when a close fourth be­hind two of tonight’s ri­vals, Se­cret Wizard and Tonk­i­nese, he must have a big each-way shout tonight.
