Ballymac Deirdre (Droopys Scolari-Ballymac Razl, Mar 14) produced the night’s most lucrative performance at SHEFFIELD on Tuesday when landing the £500 Ladies Final over 500m.
Barrie Draper’s red jacketed 2-1jf came from last to first to get home by half a length in 28.75. Swift Burn ran on for second
Deirdre’s litter brother, the 2016 Racing Post Juvenile winner Ballymac Ramsey, was made an 8-11f favourite to complete a family double 15 minutes later but found one to good in Boomtown Actor (Tullymurry Act-Boomtown Exile, Mar 15) who made all (T4 11-4) in the fastest time of the night – 28.65 (N).
At TOWCESTER, Queen Borneo (Leamaneigh Turbo-Shirocco Star, Jan 16) landed a trialstake of the ECC Timber Puppy Derby. For the second week in a row, the favourite, in this case Brinkleys Twirl (6-4), led but was reeled in on the run-in to be beaten a length.
Meanwhile in a cracking D1 competition, Shlowdown Sally (Confident Sally-Roll On Rover, Mar 14) cemented her reputation as the track’s two-bender with a 15.28 win for the 260m. It was her fifth win in her last six outings. In total she has tackled the trip 23 times for 10 wins and 9 seconds.
