Lisdarragh and Bobby Kennedy had been working well and took their chances over longer trips at Salisbury yesterday. Lisdarragh ran very well from his wide draw in a ten furlong race under Ray Dawson, jumping the road crossing about 3 furlongs from home which probably cost him half a length when prior to this he had been travelling very well on the outside of the field. Nevertheless, being beaten under five lengths by a 57 rated horse represents a real step forward and hopefully Lisdarragh will keep improving and will be winning soon for Una Loughrey. Bobby Kennedy ran a very good race upped in trip, to go over a mile and a half for Charlie Bishop. He saw out the distance very well indeed and probably just bumped into a well handicapped and fast improving opponent in Al Shaqab's Tajdid. After two consecutive seconds Bobby will be hoping to go one better next time for the Coakleys at what could be his optimum trip.
