On rain softened ground by the fifth race at yesterday evening's card, Lisdarragh ran very keenly early on and saw much too much daylight for him to settle, which coupled with the fact that he really did not handle the going conditions at all meant that he weakened quickly as the runners entered the home straight. So his next run will have to await a much sounder surface and he will have to race to ensure he is given plenty of cover - which he has really lacked in both of his last two runs. All connections were delighted with Bobby Kennedy, and after his two second places it was always on the cards that he could go one better and secure his first race win. A pull at the weights and the claim of jockey Laura Pearson enabled Bobby Kennedy to turn things around emphatically with Al Shaqab's Tajdid, who he had chased home at Salisbury last month. This time Bobby really showed he could handle the soft ground and also see out the twelve furlongs strongly as he won readily, stretching clear by a widening margin with Tajdid nine lengths back in fourth this time. Laura Pearson gave a fine, confident ride to bring out the best in the gelding this time, and owner Imelda Coakley and trainer Denis are really looking forward to seeing him go out again soon.
