Greyhound racing round-up

The semi-finals of The Ballagh Boxing Club Unraced Stake featured on Monday, and Ballinclare Solo continued his unbeaten run when scoring a very impressive win in the first semi, recording a best in the stake time of a very fast 28.73.

He has drawn trap five in this week's final and is sure to start favourite to lift the first prize.

Willmount Pearl followed up her win of the previous week by recording a good 29.01 in the second semi and has again drawn trap four for the final.

It's never easy to win a final, and with five of the six runners having broken the 29-second barrier, a good race is in prospect.

A nice double was recorded by Brendan and Michael McDonald, taking race one on Monday with Treetops Impact while Ballymurn Royal scored on Thursday in race three.

Wexford town owner Brendan Frayne was also on the double when his Sheepskin Wonder took race seven on Monday, while Babbie Helen did the business in race six on Thursday.

Gorey man Cecil Willoughby enjoyed another good win with his Aoifes Prinskie in race eight on Thursday, and has won three and finished second in his last five starts. He is in top form of late for sure.
