Puppy Chespirito, who has featured twice in this column, the first time back in September, lived up to all of his promise when landing the week’s biggest final, the Gold Cup at Shelbourne Park.

The Rural Hawaii Unraced final Clonmel produced a worthy 4-7f winner in Skywalker Tuco.

Elsewhere, yet another exceptional Laughil Blake pup, Droopys Steel won the fastest semi final of the Gain Cup at Cork.

A mention too for Dundalk’s Elsa Blue who clocked the quickest 525 of the week and has five wins and a second in her last six races.

Performance of the week? That surely has to go to Droopys Biker in the Juvenile Classic at Tralee.
