We’ll be heading to Shelbourne on Saturday evening with three runners in the Easter Cup Final following some good performances last weekend.
Clonbrien Prince produced a determined display to grab a qualifying spot in the opening Semi Final when he finished third after trouble at the opening turn. The second Semi Final produced a fantastic race between kennel mates Clona Blaze and Lenson Blinder. It was Blaze who displayed his customary early pace to lead Blinder into the opening turn. Along the far side Blinder was producing a big run to eat into Blaze’s early advantage, continuing to close around the final turns it looked like Blinder might reel him in but turning for home Blaze straightened up and resisted the challenge as he dug deep to take the honors by a head. A superb buckle by both dogs.
The trap draw for the Final is : 1. Gurteen Feather, 2. Clonbrien Prince, 3. Braveheart Bobby, 4. Lenson Blinder, 5. Droopys Davy (W), 6. Clona Blaze (W)
