Marshals Mercury got the better of Jesslikethat to win the Slievenamon Cup in Crohane today for owner William Roche. The son of Musical Time and Marshals Pearl went one step further than last year when he ran up the Derby Trial Stake and collected the silverware.
Droopys Newman was one of the few dogs who had seen his price shorten with Boyles during the week and he obliged beating Chubbys Rock. Newman provides yet another Trial Stake winner for Kingsmill Dynamo this season.
Kingsmill couldn’t add to his Oaks Trial Stake total as Kilara Quevega owned by Brian Kennedy ran up to Chubbys Vanilla. The daughter of Bexhill Eoin and Chubbys Accord is obviously bred for Clonmel and it will be interesting to see at what price she is introduced to the Oaks betting.
In the All Age Bitch Stake, Moat Missy, a Trial Stake winner in Knockgraffon last year, saw off Bermuda Magic to claim the honours. The daughter of Bar Time and Moat Belle provides a welcome winner for Fieldings.
