No question who the star of the week is in Ireland: Russian Glory (again) with the fastest win in the Irish St.Leger semi finals as he completed a five-timer for Graham Holland.

As for Shelbourne Park, some cutting and pasting with Twoinarow winning again (!) in the semi finals of the National Puppy Stake. That’s six wins and a second in seven career races for trainer Pat Kiely.

Auxerre narrowly prevailed a real ‘top of the 600 table’ clash with Beach Avenue while beaten Champion Stakes finalist Deadly Destroyer reminded racegoers that he remains one of the fastest hounds in the country over the Derby course
