A five dog affair with the absence of Senahel Butch in trap one, Serene Graduate was fastest into stride and had the whole inside to pace up well to the opening corner. Newinn Session meanwhile, shipped a bump early doors from Gymstar Elusive but this didn’t prevent the striking black from showing brilliant early dash and equally impressive track craft to sweep the opening corner a marginal second. The superstar quickly took control off the second turn and proceeded to open a three length advantage down the back straight.
The result was never in doubt approaching the penultimate bend as Simon Taylor’s charge flew around the Suirside circuit and the only factor left to decide was who would take the minor placings. Gymstar Elusive was running an excellent race and he maneuvered his way into second place rounding the final bend but it was all about Newinn Session who stayed on strongly close home to account for a four and a half length win. The time, given the fact he shipped a bump at trap rise, was a super 28.61 and expect this greyhound to make many more headlines throughout 2020.
