7 up for Maynooth jockey Davis

Maynooth jockey Sean Davis claimed his 7th career win when he partnered Repare Mon to victory for the second successive week at Dundalk tonight, April 7th.

Repare Mon (4/1) was one to follow tonight after overcoming trouble in running to triumph at the same venue last Friday and she duly followed up in the Kingbet Handicap this evening.

Davis explained afterwards: “She travelled a lot better tonight over the further trip (two miles as opposed to a mile and a half) and I was confident enough coming into the race.

“They went steady and then up the back we started to pick up a bit.

“Turning in I thought they might sprint away from me but she was good. I got a gap down the rail and she picked up. She won well.”

Trained by Tom Mullins and owned by Joseph Fitzpatrick, the Big Bad Bob filly eventually got up to beat Marino Marvel by 2 & 3/4 lengths, with favourite My Manekineko back in 3rd.


7th Winner

Meanwhile Sean Davis further explained: “That’s my seventh winner and third around here.

“My agent Kevin O’Ryan is doing a great job for me and getting me plenty of good rides.”
