Separate Ways to join Dandy Boy in Dubai bid

TRAINER David Marnane has planned the trip for Dandy Boy all summer, but has added Separate Ways to his Dubai hand because of his surprising, continued improvement.

Marnane said: "We put Dandy Boy away for Dubai after running him at Sandown. It`s something we have thought would suit him for a while. Separate Ways has proved himself all season and I think he can even improve again. There are races for both at the middle of January and they will hopefully get one of the earlier flights over.

"I don`t know how much time I will get over there, but it will be a great trip for whoever does go with them."

Michael Halford already had bags packed for Invincible Ash and Hujaylea to go to Dubai, but believes his duo may have become a trio.

"We`re hoping to send Invincible Ash, Hujaylea and possibly Banna Boirche. He`s on a waiting list, but after winning at Dundalk again last Friday he`s gone up to a rating of 103. He loves that surface at Dundalk and will hopefully do well in Dubai if he can go."
