JOHN McConnell’s yard continued in great form when the Stamullen trainer recorded his third double at Dundalk in the space of a fortnight when Construct and Aldente both scored to complete a 224/1 brace.

Construct appreciated the step up to two miles in the most valuable race of the evening, the Test Your Tipping Talents At Every Dundalk Meeting Handicap. The dual-purpose gelding was never too far from the pace and travelled well to lead approaching the straight before keeping on well under Gary Carroll to score by a length and three quarters.
