Sandown’s other grade one on the card produced a performance that certainly went into punter’s notebooks, as Dynamite Dollars claimed his maiden top level success.
The race was meant to be about Lalor cementing his position as favourite for the Arkle at Cheltenham. However, the torrential conditions meant that he got stuck in the mud, whereas his counterpart revelled in them.
Dynamite Dollars reversed the form with Lalor from his last start with authority. While he may not be touted in the same calibre as some of the previous winners of this race, he has the profile to keep on improving and cash in in some valuable prizes along the way for trainer Paul Nicholls.
