Clares Rocket made it look very easy against a top class field as he ran out a comfortable winner of the Doire Construction Champion Stakes at Shelbourne on Saturday evening.

Picking up where he left off 7 days ago, he broke smartly and showed the brute early pace we’ve become accustom to seeing. Leading into the opening turn he soon opened up a 3 to 4 length lead along the far side. Although chased hard by Droopys Awesome the outcome never looked in danger and he crossed the line two and half lengths in front, stopping the clock in another blistering time, 29.29.
