Kilcohan Park – Saturday April 22nd
Absent local trainer Peter Cronin had a night to remember when all five of his runners were successful.
The previously unraced Arrow 1/1 owned by Liam Walsh and Nicholas Duggan started the ball rolling winning as he liked in 28.77. Grabbing a second bend lead from a hampered Comical Darzy Arrow forged clear down the back running out a clear cut seven and a half lengths winner over Effernogue Mel.
In a two bend dash Ella Mash Mad 5/2 was quickly into his stride and when a prominent Battle Hard ran into early trouble ‘Ella’ skipped clear running out a seven and a half lengths winner over Nans John in a speedy 17.67.
Jetts Eske 5/4 produced a career best performance absolutely sluicing up in a best of weekend 28.63. After a moderate start ‘Jetts’ accelerated into a third bend lead over a prominent Monbeg Sonnybill. Quickly asserting up front ‘Jetts;’ went clean away in the closing stages hitting the winning line all of eight lengths clear of ‘Monbeg’.
Champagne Doll 2/1 returned to winning ways in 29.06. Getting the better of an early exchange with Extra Special ‘Champagne’ scampered into a back stretch lead eventually proving one and a half lengths to good for a running on Skyview Lark.
The Leamybrien Syndicate owned Toker Carley 4/6 completed the five timer leading all the way in a best ever 28.68. Easing his way into an early lead ‘Toker’ was never in any danger of losing out romping to a three and a half lengths success over Coco Blaze.
Race 1, A1 525: In a close run contest the Damien Ryan and Andrea Mulcahy owned and Philip Gough trained Lemon Mark regained winning ways at odds of 5/2 in 28.74. Grabbing a back stretch advantage ‘Lemon’ saw the trip out to the limit proving one and a half lengths to good for a running on Ballyhi Bucko.
Race 2, A6/A7 525: See introduction.
Race 3, A2 525: Ballyhi Lady 5/1 came from last to first to triumph in 28.91. Tagalong Hawkeye, Genuine Hero and Annacurra Sam made it three in a line off the home turn but ‘Ballyhi’ scythed through the pack to hit the line half a length clear of ‘Annacurra’.
Race 4, A3 525: Running Wild and Kellsboro Sara locked horns up front throughout. Sticking to the task really well the Ned Walsh owned ‘Kellsboro’ 3/1 battled on tenaciously for a neck success over a fast finishing Dalcash Mojo in 28.94.
Race 5, S2/S3 325: See introduction.
Race 6, A4 525: See introduction.
Race 7, A4 525: See introduction.
Race 8, A3 525: This contest went all the way to the wire. Kingsmill Rio 2/1 took over in the lead from Alien Jane off the second bend and made the best of her way home from Martha Waits. Missions Luck made sound late headway but failed by a neck to overhaul ‘Kingsmill’ in 29.09.
