For the second time this season the McCall family have the long trip home to Tyrone having claimed the honours in an All Age Cup. Today’s victory will have been particularly sweet for the family given that both their All Age dogs, Mulboy Branan and Mulboy King made the final. Branan, a Trial Stake winner in Old Kilcullen last season was declared the winner, with Desmond Cup winner Mulboy King withdrawn from the final. The two points as runner-up have all but assured King of a Champion Stakes spot, having gained 6 points and €4,000 in Glin. Both dogs are sons of Adios Alonso and Mulboy Girl.
Another giving themselves a great chance of a date in Powerstown in February was Ballyverry Baby who claimed the All Age Bitch Stake. The classicly bred daughter of Kyle James and Oaks winner Mountain Guest, Ballyverry Baby had won at Kilflynn on the opening weekend of the season. Owned By Gearoid Cashman, Ballyverry Baby saw off Tuscan Flavour to take the silverware and points.
Oaks Trial stake winner Laurdella Dani has gone right in near the top of the Oaks betting following her success today. A daughter of Adios Alonos and Jamaica Jane, she’s a half sister of Oaks runner-up Tynwald Ash, and her mother is a litter sister of Derby winner Central City. The Declan Kells owned bitch got the better of Im Shining a well bred daughter of Adios Alonso and Bossa Nova Babe.
Also claiming a ticket to Clonmel was Jet Stream for Emily Kearney. This son of Thomas The Tank and Call Posie won the Derby Trial Stake getting the better of Kingsmill Jasper. This was a first appearance of the season for Jet Stream who had been a 6-4 chance overnight. He has entered the Derby betting at 25-1.
