Pride of place today must go to the Greyhound Nuts lads who picked up the Reserve Derby Trial Stake in South Clare. Total Nutters, a June pup, out of Adios Alonso and Cillowen Gra, got the syndicate their name in the Clonmel card after getting the better of Frenchfort Pat in the final. Having followed the lads progress over the course of the last two seasons it’s great to see them claim some silverware.
In an important All Age Bitch final Skellig Tivoli claimed the honours from Fives Treasure to all but gaurantee her place in the Grace Bruton All Age Bitch Stake in Clonmel. Her victory today, allied with her victory in Milltown Malbay and final appearance in Kilflynn should she her have enough points now to compete in Clonmel.
The Oaks Trial Stake was claimed by Glowing Ambition, a daughter of Mafi Magic and Fingal Swagger. She had got the better of Woodpark Fever in the final for Padraig Ward and Denis Torpey. This was a second Trial Stake winner of the year for the Fingal Swagger litter, with Fingal Master having already won his Trial Stake in East Donegal.
Sir Harvey didn’t see a field in his puppy season but having shared a Duffer in East Donegal at the beginning of the month he claimed the South Clare Cup from Limerick South today. The son of Bexhill Eoin and Moat Elsa gave the Irish Rover Bar Syndicate plenty to smile about.
