Updates: review: Pennyforpound holds a 100% record having returned unbeaten following both of his ventures into competitive action in the point-to-point fields – each have which have come at Castletown-Geoghegan. Having picked up strongly in the closing stages, he won his four-year-old maiden at the first time of asking, when getting the better of 12 rivals to prevail by four lengths in October 2018. Returning to the Co. Westmeath course 12 months later, he was arguably even more impressive with the ease at which he dismissed a notable maiden winner from the spring in Tareeshar. The son of Winged Love jumped much more assured than the Oldtown winner, and that more fluent fencing allowed him to take control of the race with half-a-mile to race before winning again, this time by six lengths. It was also notable how well he handled significantly different ground conditions, having initially scored on Good to Firm, before returning successful on Soft ground.
