The Irish Performance of the Week is back after a two week break.

The starting point has to be Friday’s Dublin Coach Juvenile Derby semi finals won by Broadstrand Bono and Droopys Hunch. While Bono gets one nomination, the second we are giving to Ballymac Wisdom, who was beaten a length by Hunch, but was giving away seven months in age.

(Why, why why – to paraphrase Welsh Tom – did IGB feel the need to switch the event from a puppy to a ‘juvenile’ event?).

The third and fourth Shelbourne nominations goes to Puppy Oaks winner Jerusalem plus a return to form for Clonbrien Prince in the €4,000 IGB 600 final.

Meanwhile Cork staged three semi finals of the Laurels and Ballymac Lester clocked the second fastest time of the year with a 27.94 run.

Enniscorthy are staging two high quality events concurrently and there is a nomination from each. There are a batch of exciting youngsters in the unraced stake with Ballymac Kingdom quickest in 29.23 on a very slow track. Cabra Ava set the standard in a race with a long and impressive back catalogue, the Boylesports Wexford Leger.
