Metric Minnie continues good run of recent form

The Metric prefix has been winning nicely of late, and Metric Minnie continued her good run when taking the Enniscorthy track A5/6 600 yards final of €1,000 for owner Pauline Byrnes, Enniscothy.

Metric has won all three run in this stake and the extended distance clearly has brought the best out in her.

She and Willies Anto had been very closely matched on their semi-final wins. However, Metric got away well from her trap three box and was never headed after that to score in a good 33.17.

Enniscorthy trainer David Morris recorded a nice double in races six and seven.

Firstly Critical Casie scored over the 575 yards trip in 31.92, and then his own Tyrur Babycakes was fast away in the next to score well in 29.36.

Monday night featured the second round of the Superior Product Unraced Stake and all four hot favourites duly obliged.

The two Station runners were again very impressive and were sold for a large amount of money to English owner John Turner, while Piercestown Nial is the main local hope and was also impressive in winning his heat.

Three of the heat winners are drawn in the first semi and a cracking race is expected on a very good card.

It promises to be another exciting night of greyhound racing action in Enniscorthy this Thursday so why not sample it for yourself?
