Plenty of value available in Charleville All Age Cup

The All Age Cup in Charleville at the weekend looks a wide open affair with connections of plenty of dogs optimistic about their dogs chances. While there are no star names a couple do stand out from the pack and given the way this has been priced there’s probably a bit of value to be had!

Front Runners

I was a little surprised to see Lochbo Benny as short as 2-1 to win this Cup at the weekend. A third season dog, Benny’s only success came in the Duffer in Clonakilty a couple of weeks ago. While that might show that he’s in some sort of form he’ll have to improve to beat some of the dogs in this field. That his opening round opponent is as big as 8-1 probably doesn’t reflect his ability. A Trial Stake winner as a pup, Cuine Sam reached semi-finals in Johnstown and Urlingford and then Roscommon last season. He’ll give Lochbo Benny, who admittedly comes from an inform kennel, something to think about.

The pick of the buckles on the card is the first round clash of last season’s Trial Stake finalists with Knockrour Jazz and Leanandkeen set to go head-to-head on Saturday. A third round appearance in Ballyheigue will have set second favourite Knockrour Jazz up well for the meeting. Also in that quarter Siena Supreme makes his first appearance in a year. He has saved his best work for Charleville in the past and he could well do the same at the weekend.

In the top quarter Killeagh Jingles is probably the standout name but his first round opponent Glanmore Nial showed that he shouldn’t be overlooked. On the basis of his past form and most recent outing in Regional then Killeagh Jingles is probably a fair price to win out at 4-1. In the second quarter Killimor Dash is the bookies favourite to advance. However he hasn’t produced any real fireworks since winning his Trial Stake over a year ago, apart from one fast effort in the opening round of the TA Morris stake. Worldwide Swank has been in with some super dogs over the last year and could go well here if he can get motoring.
