Rocky Dreams was the subsequent of a friendly claim by Denis Hogan today, having provided the trainer with a third winner in two days in Dundalk's opening Irishinjuredjockeys.com Claiming Race.
Hogan recorded a Clonmel national hunt double yesterday, Wild Hunt being ridden by himself, and followed up with Rocky Dreams, who scored readily by three and a half lengths under jockey Daniel King.
King, whose older jockey brother Connor King has recently returned to jumps action, later said "he ran up here last week and was a bit disappointing, so it was good to get him back to form and get his head in front there today.
"He won going away - he was impressive, he put the race to bed fairly lively in the straight.
"All the horses are in good form so it is nice to get another winner on board and Denis was confident."
Rocky Dreams was valued at €10,000 and was later claimed back by his same connections, while Hogan added another horse to his string, with the purchase of James McAuley's sixth-placed Cedar Rapids for owner Raymond Treacy, at €15,000.
