Black Parachute featured in the last IPOTW chart back in late March following a flying 550 run at Shelbourne and Graham Holland’s dog won the most high profile 525 of this week at Shelbourne on Saturday.

The Irish tracks are generally running very fast in the first fortnight with a string of FOY performances including Pestana (Cork) and Mustang Firmino (Clonmel).

Finally – a reminder – the performances highlighted are not necessarily the fastest times of the week, other factors including age and experience are taken into consideration.
