Monday double for Barry O’Neill

By Dan Walsh

Point-to-point action yesterday (Monday) took place at Toomebridge in Mid-Antrim where champion rider Barry O’Neill recorded a double and Donnchadh Doyle saddled the only Wexford winner on the six-race card.


Davidoc in the Monbeg Syndicate colours was an easy 19 lengths winner for handler Donnchadh Doyle and rider Rob James in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings. Seasonal success number 24 for the season and an impressive 35% success-rate for Doyle, while James has ridden 31 winners this season and has a 36% strike-rate.

Barry O’Neill was aboard Bold Enough, winning his seventh race in succession for David Christie by 22 lengths in the Open Race while Tech Talk, handled by Tom Dreaper was a five lengths winner of the maiden race for six-year-old geldings to clinch the double success. O’Neill is well on his way to another National Point-to-Point riders’ Championship and a well-earned and deserved seventh title.
