Elevenerife progressed to The Best Car Parks Gold Cup Final next week at Shelbourne after producing a battling display on Saturday evening. Leading everywhere except the line, he had run a foot perfect race; flying from traps, pacing up well, taking the ground at the 3rd turn before finally being collared on the line by the persistent Fiery Splendour. He goes into next week’s final as a live contender following 2 huge runs in recent weeks. In the other Semi Final, Clares Wonder produced the worst start possible in a field of this quality and was never able to get in contention during the race.
Coran Sky made it a second win on the bounce when scoring in the Dandelion Bar & Nightclub Open 525. Tracking the leader early, he then showed his great back straight pace to lead at the 3rd turn, going on to win the race by a length in 28.80.
