Ryan's Dragon can burn off the opposition

Published 08/02/2013 | 04:00

Sacred Dragon is napped to prevail for Jim Ryan's select Newbridge-based operation at Dundalk tonight.

One of Aidan O'Brien's chief patrons when the Ballydoyle maestro started out at his Owning base in Co Kilkenny 20 years ago, Ryan has saddled just 32 runners since 2009. However, five of those have won, the last three doing so on the all-weather.

When Sacred Dragon, a $170,000 Keeneland purchase as a yearling in 2011, debuted for the stable at the Louth facility last month, he was backed into 9/4 from a morning show of 11/2. Although the gamble was foiled, the three-year-old should have little difficulty making amends.

Veteran jockey John Egan could saddle his first winner as a trainer courtesy of Salam Alaykum in the 10-furlong handicap. During spells with Halford and Reggie Roberts, Salam Alaykum carried Egan to his sole wins in each of 2011 and 2012.

Suehail is fancied to oblige for David Marnane and Fergal Lynch in the preceding mile handicap.

The same partnership might also collect with Sword Of Light, while Aidan and Joseph O'Brien have prospects of a brace courtesy of Ahimsa in the rated race and El Salvador in the 12-furlong maiden.
