All this week’s plaudits go to Philip Buckley, the small owner trainer who beat off the might of the Holland kennel to land the Irish St. Leger with Blastoff Jet in a career best 29.65 (550) at Limerick on Saturday. Meanwhile at Waterford, Crossfield Will produced a sparkling run for Peter Cronin in the semi finals of the Select Stakes.

Elsewhere, the Munster Juvenile got underway at Clonmel. Fastest on the clock was Bitcoin Cian (28.70), though the nomination goes to Murts Boher who was only eight spots slower but giving away four months in age. At the other end of the scale, five year old Jackies Flyer was only 10 spots behind the fastest of the night at Longford.
