Amazing Oscar got the better of Fleetwood James to win the Fran Mangan All Age Cup in Cappoquin today. Owned by James Carroll and Helen Murphy, the son of Chelsea Speed and Chubbys Melody, had won a duffer last season but ran into Needham Work on his debut this year. After a couple of runs to get up to speed he took the honours today to give him the chance to get a run at the Irish Cup.
Alva Lil scored an emotional victory today in Cappoquin for the Lillis family from Co. Clare. The Dungarvan Oaks Trial Stake winner last season, she would reach the quarter final of the Oaks in Powerstown. A family tragedy over the summer makes this win all the more poignant, for the lady owned by Deirdre Lillis. Lil, is a daughter of Kyle James and Coffee In Currow.
The Oaks Trial Stake saw Kilty Sadie take what was a deserved victory after two semi-final appearances already this season. The daughter of March Is On and Lochbo Zola got the better of Isherselfdown in the final. Owned by John and Noel Hallissey, Kilty’s consistency could make her an awkward prospect in Powerstown.
The Reserve Derby Trial Stake saw Yippee Razor claim the fourth spot in the Reserve pecking order for owner John Martin. A son of Razor Ashmore and Miss Candy Floss, Razor got the better of Mad Jingles in the final. Yippee Razor will be hoping to follow in the paw prints of half-brother Yippee Kiyay who won a reserve Trial Stake before winning a full trial stake to qualify for Clonmel.
