A bid for a third 64 Derby Trial Stake in three weekends came up just short for the Flynns of Tarbert as Eshwary Leader obliged for owners Gary Anderson and Michael Keenan. Leader had been a short priced favourite over night and was priced at 1/4 entering the final with This And That.
Man of War made the journey to Kerry from Lifford worthwhile for the McGhees as their superfast son of Adios Alonso and Moonlit Harbour got the better of Lochbo Bob in the final. Man of War beat Offshore Town in the semi-final but was the outsider entering the final with Lochbo Bob, a champion stakes qualifier last year priced at 1-2.
Stonepark Dynamo won the Oaks Trial Stake giving Kingsmill Dynamo yet another qualifier for the Clonmel Classic. The Michael O’Dwyer owned lady got the better of Camarillo Diva in the final.
Dependable, a daugher of Bexhill Eoin and Wee Beauty won the Bitch Stake from Mountain Maeve.
