After watching Full Noise win by three quarters in length, Dunne said: “He’s still a big baby. He ran really well at Wexford and I thought he almost would have won if he had jumped better. lots of mistakes that day. and that’s why we put it back on the hurdles today. “
Asked about the money for the horse on this occasion, he replied: “He was run over at the Racing Post on the last day and in a few other places. When the money starts coming in, the public hangs on.”
Always placed at striking distance on this occasion, Full Noise still had three lengths to find on the leader Esthers Marvel who approached the last but continued strongly under Sean Flanagan to lead in the last furlong.
Owned by the coach, Full Noise had set a career record in his previous round but was still eighth of ten finishers beaten at 17½ lengths over the fencing at Wexford in October.
Previously, he had never finished within 55 lengths of the winner in seven starts at odds between 50-1 and 300-1.
The stewards inquired about the improvement in form, but could not come to a definitive conclusion. The matter was referred to the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board’s Reference Committee.
The victory comes after the All Class coached by Dunne landed a bet in a flat handicap at Navan in March, which is currently the subject of an IHRB investigation.
Harty in flying form
Having made history by becoming Ireland’s first co-trainer earlier this month, the father-son combination of Eddie and Patrick Harty launched into a flyer with just their second runner as Whatucallher was promoted to first place in the 3m2f handicap obstacle.
Robin Des Champs’s daughter had been hit by Walking On Glass, but the latter was considered by the Stewards to have improved her ranking by bringing Whatucallher across the track in the last 50 meters and the race was awarded to the last.
“It’s obviously not a perfect way to get our first winner, but it’s a dream start. It’s more and more from here and I hope there will be a lot more.” , said Eddie Harty.
The mare was a winning first race in Ireland for French amateur Nicolas Terrassin, who had finished second on her at Wexford two weeks earlier.
