One of our favourite competitions, having won it with Vans Viking on 2014, the Insurances Juvenile Classic got underway at Tralee on Friday and we scored a nice double on the evening.

Nitro Notorious (Crash/Riverside Charm) clocked the fastest time of the opening round as he led all the way in Heat 4 , stopping the clock in 28.64. Breaking well he found himself out in front at the opening turn and led by four lengths down the back, around the final turns Our Jacks Lad produced a big finish and was only a length and a half behind crossing the line.

Our other winner was Clonbrien Hero (Razldazl Jayfkay/Trout or Salmon). Leading off the second bend he went on to win by three parts of a length in 28.96. A good run from the youngster, holding some nice types at bay on the run in.

Unfortunately, the trap draw hasn’t been kind and our two heat winners find themselves up against each other in Heat 1 of the Second Round. 1. Nitro Notorious, 2. Toocoolforschool, 3. Wind Spirit, 4. Knockbawn Jasper, 5. Clonbrien Hero, 6. Droopys Giraud
