Black Hawkeye (Westmead Hawk-Solent Bargain) took full advantage of the withdrawal of likely favourite Redwood Mick to land the €4,000 Cox Cup at Newbridge. The Jimmy Melia trained black finished strongly to beat Hey Biddie in 30.15 (-20) in the 550yd final. In the first round, Hawkeye had been beaten four and a half lengths by 2014 winner Mick in 29.93 (-20).
