Precedence has to go to an A1 570 sweepstake simply because the winning semi-remaining occasions in it were being fairly outrageous. The observe document for 570yds up to March of this 12 months (juvenile traditional night time, truly) was 30.62, which was jointly held by Toms Brett and Raparee Molly, and the Liam Dowling-skilled syndicate doggy, Ballymac Bailey bettered it by three spots in the second semi-closing, on 30.59.

Cashen Miska truly clocked 28.27 at the quarter-final stage and she experienced to exhibit substantial grit to pull back and master Michael Cahill’s Samba Bailey by a head in the 1st semi-last past Saturday. Her clash with Michael McEllistrim’s Cape Legend, so remarkable in clocking 28.39 beating a further truly superior just one, Cascade Phantom, by a size in the 2nd semi-closing, makes for a different true cracker this Saturday.
