Week 4

Once again thankyou to Paddy McGhee for his help



Abbeydorney, Crohane, Edenderry & Loughrea.

This week’s headlines were captured in style by Michael O’Donovan at the Abbeydorney meeting where he completed a treble including both trial stakes and the Horgan Cup, won by last season’s Corn Na Feile winner and Irish Cup semi-finalist, Serene Angel (Adios Alonso/Uptown Angel). This lad was a top performer last year and made a great return to action at the Kerry venue to land the spoils from Bower King, a winner previously at Liscannor.

Both trial stakes were also landed by the Tipperary trainer. Stonepark Rebel (Murtys Blaze/Uptown Rebel) won the Derby Trial Stake to give Murtys Blaze a first winner of the season. The Oaks Trial Stake went to the impressive Melting Pot (Kingsmill Dynamo/Intense Focus). This lady caught the eye of the observers over the weekend and received a quote of 16/1 for the Oaks.

As Michael O’Donovan completed his treble, so too did the “Uptown” prefix of John Browne in the breeding ranks. Uptown Rebel is the dam of Stonepark Rebel, Uptown Angel is the dam of Serene Angel and the treble was completed by Uptown Cailin in the All-Age Bitch Stake, the winner is a litter sister to Serene Angel.

Geordie Casanova (Johnny Casanova/Loyal Leader) was a most impressive winner of the Slievenamon Cup at the Crohane and Killenaule meeting. The winner was a very fast but unlucky customer last season and made amends on his first start of the season beating Blue Beruki and Wallers Lot Matt on the way to victory. A second winner in as many weeks for the Loyal Kennels of Martin Donnelly.

The All-Age Bitch Stake at the meeting was also won by an impressive performer in, Jogon Jeanie (Thomas the Tank/Lady Twinkletoes). This lady was a trial stake winner at Rathdowney last year and a member of a good litter which included Timber House. The winner clocked well throughout and got the better of Gortmelia Daze in the final.

It was a good weekend for sire Johnny Casanova and he completed a double here in the Derby Trial Stake with Amazing King (Johnny Casanova/Wise Lady). The Oaks Trial Stake was won by Juicemelucy (Wallace Green/Intervention), a repeat mating to the litter which produced Timmeys Bin.

Loughrea’s All-Ages were both dominated by the winners. A lot of coursing folk are sceptical about clocks and some totally avoid the times given, but these all-ages are examples of impressive dominance in both clock and course. The Connacht Cup was won by Woodpark Alonso (Adios Alonso/Woodpark Rebel). This fellow impressed last year at the Irish Cup when reaching the quarter-finals and the evidence of the weekend would say he has trained on well for the weeks ahead. Alonso was some 24 spots clear on the first round clocks and this was reflected in the betting as he was a warm order favourite. He got the better of Crafty Resino in the final and the winner may well be one of the top All-Ages for this season.

The second example of this kind was set by Ougham Ellen (Kyle James/Ougham Miss) in the All-Age Bitch Stake at the meeting. This lady was beaten in the third round of the Oaks last season by the eventual winner Vienna Calling and put up a great display here on her seasonal debut. She will be expected to strongly contest the All-Age Bitch category in the coming weeks and could find herself in the line-up for the Grace Bruton in January.

Furey Mills (Adios Alonso/Stop That Ger) won the Derby Trial Stake at the Galway meeting providing a first winner for Stop That Ger as a dam. Herself a very lightly coursed bitch, she won a trial stake in Miltown Malbay in the 12/13 season. The Oaks Trial Stake at Loughrea went to Oakview Banba (Johnny Casanova/Oh Banba). Oakview Banba’s dam is a half-sister to Intacta Banba, the 2013 Irish Cup runner-up. This lady prevented a litter double in the trial stake finals when beating Fivestarger, another from the Stop That Ger litter.

Judiligence (Adios Alonso/Notindispute) landed the competitive All-Age Cup at Edenderry. This lad had failed to raise a flag in four outings since his trial stake win a little over a year ago but got back to winning ways in this event. He got the better of Game Mikey and Crafty Who on the way to victory.

Killimor Matey produced a double by siring both trial stake winners at this meeting. Donovanneighbour (Killimor Matey/Bosca Ceoil) landed the Derby Trial Stake and the Oaks Trial Stake went to Brianna Mark (Killimor Matey/Brianna). This is a second winner for Brianna’s litter to Matey, with Cranorchard landing the Derby qualifier at Regional a week previous.

A double for the John Flynn kennel was the highlight of the weekend, adding to last weekend’s win to bring their tally to three trial stake winners with as many weeks of the season gone. Westmeath, Ballyheigue and Regional were the meetings to be run, while Cashel had to postpone with the hope of running later in the season.

The James Curran Memorial Cup at Regional was won by last year’s Thurles Derby Trial Stake winner Kyle Fionn (Kyle Ranger/Ocean Tolula). Fionn beat Get Into Gear in the final, although, he was due to meet the talented Floating Patriot in the first round before the latter was withdrawn. Kyle Fionn was beaten in the second round of the Derby last year by the winner Feel My Pulse and may well have benefited from his couple of runs in Glin last weekend.

The All-Age Bitch Stake at Regional went to Pauna Pronto (Captain Dru/Have We Six). A lady not seen since her victory last season in Limerick City, she prevented Lochbo Vicky from completing her double at the venue.

Trial Stake action at the Limerick venue saw Cranorchard (Killimor Matey/Brianna) book his place in the Boylesports Derby. The Oaks Trial Stake went to Free and Easy (Kingsmill Dynamo/Blades of Glory), a winner for the in-form John Flynn kennels and a second litter member to win this season.

District Twelve (Adios Alonso/Dale Roisin) was a good performer last year, landing a trial stake and reaching the final of the Puppy Stake at Old Kilcullen before winning two rounds of the Irish Cup at Patrickswell. District Twelve got his season of to the best possible start on home soil in Westmeath last weekend landing the Belsize Cup. Impressing on the clock in each round, District Twelve collected the honours from Blueview Sanual. Needham Simple was a notable non-runner on day one, added to the list was Dealbhna Mor who was withdrawn from the second days action.

The Clonmel tickets at Westmeath were collected by Loyal Lar (Kyle James/Loyal Leader), in the Derby Trial Stake for the Donnelly’s, while Killucan Rose (Johnny Casanova/Your Symbolic) landed the Oaks Trial Stake and sealed another local winner for Declan Carr.

The White Sands Cup at Ballyheigue provided a valuable six Champion Stakes points to the winner, Blackpool Kyle (Kyle James/Dusty Track). The winner got the better of Cloudy Dawn in the final. Both runners had previously done battle in the 3-course duffer at Kilflynn although the result was reversed on this occasion.

Leavesinthewind (Kyle James/Madtogoagain) was a beaten finalist at Tralee last year but got off the mark with victory in the All-Age Bitch Stake here. A sister to last year’s Derby winner, Feel My Pulse, got the better of Kilcastle Lady, a runner having the first start of her third season.

For the Flynn kennels of Kerry another winner, this time in the Derby Trial Stake at Ballyheigue. Rhythm and Rhyme (Razor Ashmore/Quality and Dash) took honours here and joined his sister, Grace and Glamour in the Classic ranks for January 2016. It is safe to say the Flynn runners have “hit the ground running” this year with three trial stake winners in the last two weeks action. The Reserve Oaks Trial Stake at the meeting was won by Pumpkin Judicial (Judicial Affai/Pumpkin Aviva) for another in form kennel, this time for Jody Thompson, having had both runners in the final of the Derby Trial Stake in Liscannor on the opening days of the season.

Week 2 – Glin & Ennis/Clarecastle

The new field in Glin was a huge talking point last season and the positive vibes continue after last weekend’s meeting. The standard of coursing has been reported as second to none once again.

Mulboy King (Adios Alonso/Mulboy Girl) took the honours in the prestigious Desmond Cup. This runner was held in high regard last season but had an unfortunate campaign. King made amends this weekend and collected the honours, beating Arcade Maximus in the final. Sturdyandstaunch collected his first points in his third campaign, reaching the semi-finals, while Living Next Door can build on his semi-final performance for the remainder of the season.

There was a high quality All-Age Bitch contest at Glin also with a number of trial stake winners from last year involved including Kitty Butler winner Blue Abella. Churchill Queen and Bated Breath reached the final with Bated Breath (Adios Alonso/Exact Science) getting the better of the contest on the day but both runners could meet again in this category throughout the season.

bated breath

The Murphy & Ryan Memorial Cup at the Ennis & Clarecastle meeting went to last year’s Lixnaw Derby Trial Stake winner Tromora Master (Mafi Magic/Tromora Babe). Taur Road was withdrawn from the final while Master’s semi-final saw him renew acquaintances with Wicked Monk, the other finalist in Lixnaw last year. Tromora Master was declared winner and was the first of a double on the day for connections with Tromora Mafi (Mafi Magic/Tromora Darkie) collecting the second Reserve Derby Trial Stake of the season.

isnt he class

Leigh Smokey is turning out to be a top dam and produced another impressive winner this weekend. Isn’t He Class is a striking looking dog by Wallace Green and Leigh Smokey and collected his Derby ticket at Glin. With Kyle Leigh and Leigh Snowie already performing with distinction in Powerstown Park, this half-brother will look to go a few courses better come the last weekend in January.

The Oaks Trial Stake at Glin went to Graceandglamour (Razor Ashmore/Quality and Dash). This runner is also well related, with Bold and Brazen, Hi Black Jack and Kilfergus Belle members of the dams’ previous litters. In winning this stake Graceandglamour ensured John Flynn has trained a trial stake winner at the last five Glin meetings. Quite a remarkable achievement for all involved.

Tromora Mafi

Finally, the Ennis/Clarecastle Oaks Trial Stake was won by Manley Girl (Wallace Green/Class Attraction). Another runner who ticks all the boxes in terms of breeding. Class Attraction’s exploits on the field are well documented, while her first litter also produced the likes of Manntan Maple, Foot Solution and Isn’t She Magic.
