Glynn joy at Fallon coup

KIEREN FALLON will have only his second ride in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper next month on the Noel Glynn-trained Old McDonald.

The six-time British champion jockey rode Jonjo O'Neill's Refinement to finish fourth behind Missed That at the Cheltenham Festival in 2005.

Old McDonald opened his account at the third attempt at Ludlow in December and Glynn is delighted to have secured Fallon's services. "We are from the same parish in Co Clare and Kieren was a neighbour of mine, so I decided to get him booked and I couldn't have got much better," said the trainer.

"This is a good horse and he won nicely at Ludlow last time. The time before he was second to Tavern Times at Fairyhouse and was maybe a bit unlucky."
