Carrowkeal Gavin claimed his second Cup of the season as he took the honours in the Deisie Cup run by Dungarvan Coursing Club. The Derby quarter-finalist, owned by Kathleen Murphy got the better of Brownes Kitchen to take the honours. Gavin was picking up his second Cup of the season having won just a fortnight ago in Bandon. The son of Kyle James and Cumbawn Ellen will probably need to pick up another couple of points if he wants to go to Clonmel this year though, as his prizemoney still places him out of the top 10 with the Christmas period still to go.
The Derby Trial Stake ticket went to a Reserve, as Tory Hill Denzel claimed the honours for Paul Reid. The son of Razor Ashmore and Quality And Dash became the fifth member of his litter to book his place in Powerstown Park, when he got the better of Turbo Ashmore this afternoon. It was his first outing of the season.
The vibes about Clodagh River before this weekend’s coursing were strong with a few euros coming for her on the Boylesports site during the week. The daughter of Kingsmill Dynamo and Intense Focus, owned by the Banner Deise Syndicate, got the better of Donegal Tina to claim her Trial Stake. Having run well through the opening two rounds at the Killimer Kilrush meeting she lost out in the third round there but made no mistake today to take the ticket for Clonmel.
