You might be tempted to think that with reduced meetings, there would be little of note running in the first few days of the new year, not so.

Step forward Fiona Scullion’s puppy Diegos Sophia whose 28.20 10 length win at Drumbo Park was faster than any ‘525’ recorded at the track in 2019.

Pick of the rest is probably Good News’ 16 month old half sister Free From Desire with a 28.83 run at Waterford.

Last Sunday night, Paul Davies’ puppy littermates Eskvale Bhoy and Eskvale Sally clocked the two fastest time of the week at Clonmel. Look out too for a very decent run by Mullingar pup Dapper Daisy.
