There was success for two of the leading figures at the 2014 National Meeting as Oaks winner Somelittlething and Derby semi-finalist Fingal Master claimed All Age Cup success today.
In the Jubilee All Age Cup, Fingal Master, recently a Cup winner at Johnstown and Urlingford, got the better of Mungos Rio in the final to claim the victory and move himself onto 8 Champion Stake points. Master will now be an interesting competitor should he make it back to Clonmel for the Champion Stakes. He’s owned by Pat Savage.

The Jel Syndicate and the KKY-Jel Syndicate enjoyed a fine double as Oaks winner Somelittlething claimed the All Age Bitch Stake and Somelittlelady the Champion Puppy Stake. It was Somelittlething’s second victory of the season and she could well make a return to Powerstown Park at the beginning of February. Somelittlelady’s yet to win a Trial Stake this season but the absence of Lochbo Pearl means she is set to run in the Oaks. She showed that she shouldn’t be underestimated either getting the better of Jeffys Twinkle and Arcade Maximus to take Champion Puppy honours.
In the Derby Trial Stake Chubbys Charmer, a son of Razor Ashmore and Chubbys Princess, making his first appearance of the season, claimed the ticket to Powerstown. Charmer, a 6-4 overnight favourite, got the better of Dungill Adio in the final and will send owner Laura O’Meara to Powerstown Park with a Derby runner.
The Oaks Trial Stake, saw Kingtone Jessie, a runner-up at both Thurles and Kilsheelan earlier in the season, claim her ticket to Clonmel. Also a 6-4 overnight favourite, the daughter of Adios Alonso and Ballyina Lady, got the better of Dungill Blondie, a litter sister of Derby runner-up Dungill Adio. Kingtone is owned by Kieran King.
