Mulboy King and the McCalls made the long journey south from Dungannon worthwhile as they claimed the Desmond Cup and the prize-money in Glin. Mulboy was a 16-1 outsider at the outset of coursing but got the better of everything in his way to claim the title. He was very unlucky last season, suffering heavy courses at Dundalk and New Ross, while he lost out to Blades of Hope at Castletowngeoghegan. Mulboy got the better of Arcade Maximus in the final.
Bated Breath proved herself too strong for Churchill Queen in the final of the All Age Bitch Stake at Glin. The daughter of Adios Alonso and Exact Science had been well fancied before coursing and proved herself a deserved winner, having entered Sunday as an Even money favourite. Her owners, the Dead Poet Society Syndicate will be hopeful she can claim more silverware before the year is out.
In the Oaks Trial Stake, John Flynn maintained his amazing record at the Glin meeting claiming the stake with Graceandglamour, a daughter of Razor Ashmore and Quality and Dash. This April pup will certainly improve with a little more time and could be worth keeping an eye on later in the season. She got the better of Barrack Roisin in the final.
Litter brother of Barrack Roisin, Ballyregan Bobby also lost out in the final of a Trial Stake this weekend as Isnt He Class claimed an impressive win in the 64 dog Derby Trial Stake. Owned by Robert Green and Mark Mulholland, this son of Wallace Green and Leigh Smokey was well fancied from Friday morning and ran out a good winner for connections.
