The biggest event in Ireland in the last week was the final of the Race of Champions at Tralee which went to the impressive Slippy Cian.
After some quieter weeks at Shelbourne, Red Mills Champion Unraced winner Ballymac Cooper produced a stunning 29.29 run for the 550 yard trip and must immediately come into Champion Stakes and Irish Derby contention.
At Cork, Oaks winner Killmacdonagh clocked the fastest 550 yard run in two years.
Meanwhile at Limerick, Blame The Game, who recently clocked the fastest 350 yard performance in five years, continues to dominate the open sprint competition. Another sprint run well worth a mention is the fastest 350 for a couple of years at Enniscorthy for Monbeg Me Daddy.
One way to guarantee a slot of the table is by clocking the fastest time over the standard distance AND being the youngest winner of the week. Step forward the exciting Kilkenny winner Good Force.
Finally, inseparable littermates. On the night that their half sister Geelo Blissful clocked the fastest 480 of the year over the water at Nottingham, Jet Stream Venus equaled Newinn Lester’s best 525 at Waterford, while brother Missing Postman recorded the year’s fastest 730.
