Newinn Wonder got his first Cup of the season as he overcame Offshore Eoin in the final of the Cup in Mooncoin. The litter brother of Thomas The Tank, had been the fastest dog in the opening round of last year’s Derby but just couldn’t see to string the rounds together. Could he appear in Sevenhouses or Templetuohy to try and gain entry to the Champion Stakes?
It’s been a good couple of days for Central City as Smokey Millie claimed the All Age Bitch Stake beating Dependable in the final. A beaten finalist on her last outing she makes it two wins in two days for this litter with Smokey Symbol successful yesterday in Borrisoleigh.
The puppy stake was claimed by Roll Over Magic as the Gorey Derby Trial Stake winner got the better of Somelittlething in the final of the puppy stake. A son of Mafi Magic and Moat Elsa, Magic is unbeaten this season and can expect his price to shorten for Clonmel now. I’m also led to believe that the beaten finalist will also be cut for the Oaks with her opening round yesterday on a par with many of the All Age dogs.
Ashmore King lost out in his second final of the season as Garbally Sam just got the better of him. Ashmore had lost in the Enniscorthy Trial Stake final and it was a case of deja vu for connections as he lost out at the same field. Garbally Sam, a son of Adios Alonso and Garbally Glory, had only one previous outing losing to Farewell Martin in Newcastlewest.
Another losing in their second Trial Stake final of the season was Late Drama, previously the Trial Stake runner up in Lifford. She lost out here to Simtam, making her first outing of the season for Doris Liddy, out of Kyle James and Tullamoy Duchess.
