THE Dennison Commercials Ltd four-year-old geldings’ maiden at Loughanmore on Saturday produced an impressive performance from the Stuart Crawford-trained newcomer Malone Road (4/1-9/4 favourite). Ridden by Ben Crawford, the Kalanisi gelding travelled strongly in the 11-runner event and held the advantage at the last when running green giving the initiative back to the Warren Ewing-trained newcomer Soldier At War. However, Crawford’s mount quickly asserted on the run in to win easily by three and a half lengths.
