Tony O'Hehir: Dunlop stable has all the fax at its finger tips.

Byline: Tony O'Hehir

IF YOUreceived a blank page through your fax machine, would you know where it came from? If you did know, would you contact the sender? If you did not know, how could you know where the page came from?

Not that it matters hugely in the overall scheme of things, but that mix-up over John Dunlop's three horses appearing in the list of final acceptors for the Irish Derby when forfeit was made for them last month was a bit strange.

More than any other training operation in these islands, the Dunlop stable has a long and meticulous record in dealing with international racing and all it involves.

They have proof their fax was sent. HRI claims to have received only a blank page, but accepts that forfeit was declared. Game, set and match to Arundel.


John Dunlop Meticulous
