Gurteen Time claimed the top prize in Bandon and Careys Cross as he got the better of Here Comes Mafi in the final of the All Age Cup. A son of Wilton Time and Lochbo Katie, this was only Gurteen’s fourth outing. Could Tom Spillane’s hound be an outsider for a Clonmel place. Another win at Christmas time and he’d certainly be in the mix. Here Comes Mafi for his part move onto 6 Champion Stakes points.
Lineroad Amigo claims the only full Derby Trial Stake on offer this weekend and further enhances the reputation of the Castleisland Trial Stake having been beaten in the second round at the Kerry venue. Collete O’Regan’s hound is a son of 2012 Champion Bitch Stake winner Portinard Nine.
In the Reserve Oaks Trial Stake, Take That Now emerged triumphant for Batty Heaphy. Take That Now has had 6 outing’s already this season performing best at Listowel were she was beaten in the semi-final of the reserve Trial Stake there.
