Star of the week is Graham Holland’s Part Blake with a 29.24 in the Irish Leger, the fastest time in over two years and his seventh win in ten races.
There were some flying runs at Shelbourne on Saturday headed by Twoinarow who made it five wins from six races in the first round of the National Puppy Stake.
Mallogs Marley produced a career best 29.40 over the 550 course and Beach Avenue produced a FOY over the 575 course.
Clonmel’s Munster Juvenile was won by Sawdust Hondo in 28.84, but we’ve nominated the six months younger and slightly quicker Three Of Use for a 28.70 run last Sunday. There was a particularly impressive sprint by Skylight Blake at Curraheen Park. Not only was it the quickest run of the year, it was recoded on a track when the fastest 525 was won in an ordinary 28.52.
Last week, we were unable to separate two identical times at Thurles. This week they went one better with a triple dead heat.
