My earlier report seems to have done a disappearing act.
Amys Lotto proved too good for the field in the O’Carroll O’Connor All Age Cup as he got the better of Needham Simple this afternoon in Lixnaw. Having reached the semi-final of the Champion Stakes in February, Lotto, has had a quiet start to the season by his own high standards. Owned by Amy O’Connor, connections will be hoping this is only the start of his season!
The All Age Bitch Stake was taken by Simtam, her second such success of the season having previously won the Bitch Stake in Thurles. The daughter of Kyle James and Tullamoy Duchess had too much for Knockout Kate in the final. She’s owned by Doris and Liam Liddy.
The vibes were very strong for Tobar Na Molt the winner of the Oaks Trial Stake in Lixnaw. The superbly bred daughter of Mafi Magic and Newinn All In got the better of Cryptic Kerry in the final. Owned by John Best this was her first outing of the season.
In the Derby Trial Stake Tromora Master had too much for Wicked Monk in the final. The son of Mafi Magic and Tromora Babe reached the semi-final of the Milltown Malbay Trial Stake on his first appearance where he was beaten by eventual winner Timmie Trickibow. Master is owned by Kathleen Hogan.
