Can Fingal ‘Master’ field in Mooncoin?

Derby semi-finalist Fingal Master will be aiming to make it two consecutive victories as he is set to take to the field in the Jubilee All Age Cup in Mooncoin. With dual cup winners Marshals Mercury and Whiskey Galore also in the field he’s certainly not going to get anything straight forward

Front Runners

There’s a full card in place for Mooncoin as always and there’s a very good All Age Cup to look forward to. Shortest in the betting is Sturdyandstaunch who has been knocking on the door of success throughout the season. The son of Johnny Casanova and Eastwell Blonde produced his best result of the season in Ballyduff losing out to the exciting Needham Work in the final. He meets Blue For Gold who was a duffer winner at Mooncoin last season, but the John Flynn trained hound will be fancied to advance.

He could well meet Patterdale Mario in the second round, the son of Kingsmill Dynamo and Adios Venetia makes his first appearance of the season. A June pup last season he was consistent and perhaps unlucky not to take a Trial Stake. If he has improved he could well be an each way shout here at 8-1.

The second favourite is Fingal Master, a dog coming fresh off an extremely impressive victory in  Johnstown and Urlingford on his last appearance. The Derby semi-finalist accounted for three cup winners Corriga Rebel, Coshair Slane and Skellig Sunlight to take the silverware and is a fair 2-1  to collect here. I wouldn’t put anyone off backing him on the basis of his last effort. Also in his quarter is Amys Lotto a winner on his last appearance in Lixnaw. He accounted for Needham Simple in the final on that occasion but could well find Master just a little to hot to handle.

The bottom quarter sees double Cup winner Marshals Mercury attempt to take the silverware. A winner in Crohane and Carlow (were he beat Blueview Charlie) he’s certainly no mug and a real contender. Bunnow Hulahul and Maughera King are both capable of causing a shock or two on their day and a semi-final appearance for one of the two is certainly not out of the question.

Whiskey Galore is due to reappear here and is set to meet Total Smokey, the artist formerly known as Total Nutters! Whiskey Galore has been one of the stories of the season but following his recent first round defeat in Dungarvan it’ll be interesting to see how he bounces back. The winner could well meet Mungos Rio in the second round if Rio can overcome Fat Pat.
