JAMES CURREN ALL AGE CUP
A bit of a surprise to see this chap lift this Cup but he did so on merrit. The breeding is there....Bexhill Eoin out of Windfarm Lady ......means hes related to some of the fastest up the field. And his performance so far cannot be faulted. A first round bye let him in under the radar......a 10 euro bet on him at that point would have gone down well!
His next round run with tough performer Gingerbread Lad was a good performance

NED QUINN BITCH STAKE
This stake was mared slightly by the withdrawl of Helens Diva.....she was in great form but took a heavy tumble at the top of the field after a spectaular run. I understand she is unlikely to run again this season.....but nothing is broken so lets hope for a brighter outcome.....a highly talented bitch
