We headed to Shelbourne on Saturday evening looking to follow up on recent weeks successes, and the team produced another fine performance, this time scoring a six timer!
The main event of the evening was the 2019 Ladbrokes Easter Cup Final, where we were represented by no fewer than three runners. Clona Blaze completed an unbeaten run through the competition as he produced an electric break and superb display of early pace to land the spoils. Clonbrien Prince gave chase throughout but couldn’t reel in the long time leader, eventually going down by a neck in 29.37, completing a memorable 1-2 for the kennels.
Fantasy Ben had given the team our first winner of the evening when he the produced a powerful performance to land the Ladbrokes Acca Boosty Ten Up AO 525 in 2847 (video above). Avoiding trouble at the opening turn, he steered a wide course, pulling away to a five length success. We didn’t have to wait long for the next winner as Good Karma following up immediately in the next race, the Ladbrokes Multiples Guaranteed All Day on The Grid 750. Sitting second throughout he produced one final charge on the run in to grab victory by a head in 41.95 Riverside Leo landed a very hot Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Trial Stake. Showing good early pace to move to the front on the opening bend he opened up a decisive advantage. Travelling well throughout he showed great determination to land the contest by a length and half in a very fast 28.25.
The penultimate race of the evening went the way of Toto’s Park as he ran out a two and a half length of victor of the Ladbrokes Odds Boost Open 550. Edging into the lead at the first turn he put space between himself and the chasing pack along the far side. Turning for home he was in full control crossing the line in 29.58. The final race of the evening saw Beaming Paradise produce a hugely impressive performance to claim the Ladbrokes #GETAPRICE to Request a Price Open 575. Hitting the opening turn into second place he railed beautifully to take up the lead. Producing a relentless gallop throughout he was in full control of the contest crossing the line two and a half lengths in front in a superb 30.69, just half a length outside the track record.
The next few weeks promises to be busy as we see the start of the Cork Oaks, the, and Con & Annie Kirby and we start to plan our English Derby team to try to land glory at Nottingham.
