Lots of weekend action and none more lucrative than Toolmaker Josie with victory in the Kirby Memorial at Limerick. It wasn’t just the winner’s prize of €80K, Robert Gleeson’s pup was the youngest winner on the card and clocked the fastest time of the eight 525s on the night.

Cracked Lady picked up the Puppy Oaks at Shelbourne with Beslow Maximus clocking 18.58 for the sprint, a time bettered just once in all of 2018, by Ardnasool Jet. For the first time ever, there will be a third nomination for Shelbourne. How can you not include the run of 21 month old Wanneroo?

Caltra Rocky gets the Cork nomination on the basis of another fine performance in the Supersprint, but the track gets a second nomination courtesy of an exceptional run by 18 month old Miss Sahara.

Graham Holland was very bullish about the chances of Beaming Paradise in the first round of the Cesarewitch at Mullingar and the 1-2f duly clocked the fastest time of the round.

On the subject of fast times, Forest Kodiak was just eight spots outside the Dundalk 525 yard clock with a 28.25 run. Newinn Lester clocked the FOY for Waterford’s standard distance.
