Shares are available in the exciting four-year-old gelding Dungarvan, who has recently joined trainer Micky Hammond in Middleham following his purchase at the Goffs Summer HIT Sale.
A regally-bred son of Dubawi, Dungarvan was previously in training with Godolphin but as yet he remains unraced. He is out of the Galileo mare Dalkova, who won on three occasions including in Listed company.
Dalkova is in turn out of a sibling of the Grp-1 winner and Derby runner-up Daliapour, the Grp-3 Queen's Vase Stakes winner Dalampour and the smart Graded-placed hurdler Dalaram.
The last point is of particular significance as Dungarvan has now joined one of the powerhouse jumping yards in the north. Although he will surely win races on the flat, he has the makings of an extremely high-class novice hurdling prospect.
With that in mind, it is worth remembering that his sire Dubawi is a very capable NH stallion.
His runners under that code include the Champion Chase hero Dodging Bullets, the dual Grade-1 winning juvenile hurdler Hisabaat and the Grade-2 winning and Grade-1 placed hurdler Purple Bay. Throw in the fact that Galileo is a Grade-1 producing NH broodmare sire (think Pentland Hills, Sir Erec), and it is clear that Dungarvan is exceptionally well-qualified for a hurdling career.
The Micky Hammond team enjoyed a stellar 2019/20 jumps campaign, with 31 winners on the board and over £300,000 in prizemoney banked prior to the disruption of racing - including the Grade-1 success of Cornerstone Lad in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle. A track record that also includes well over 200 flat successes ensures that Dungarvan is in the perfect environment to continue his development under either code.
