Terrific treble for local trainer Kavanagh
It was a very good night for Enniscorthy trainer John Kavanagh on Monday night when recording a fine treble, two of which he is part owner
The track supporters A3/4 Tri Distance got underway and 'Ravens Jester', who I mentioned last week, started the Kavanagh night off well when he raced to a very nice 28.93 win in heat one.
Then 'Ravens Tulip' won race five, the semi-final of the unraced stake, when overcoming trap six to score in 29.65 and 'Our Little Dolly' completed the hat-trick in race seven when also scoring from trap six trap in heat one of the Bitch Stake, time 29.18.
Thomas Byrne saw his promising bitch 'Mulrankin Zip' do it the hard way this week coming from behind to score snugly in the end in the other semi of the unraced stake and she is still my selection to score in this week's final.
This Thursday night will see the start of the Grand Prize AN A1/2 STAKE with a big €4,000 to the winner for first prize.
