Hello Diego set the standard in the opening round of the Billy & Mary Ramsbottom Memorial ON2 at Kilkenny on Friday evening. Representing the Paul Hennessy/ Paul Hynes combination, the son of Jaytee Yankee and Darver Bridie was prominent before taking charge before the third turn. He would go on to win by an ever-increasing five and a half lengths over Jackeen Chick in 29.09. 

Lemon Ted and Pookies Lothbrok also won. Pookies Lothbrok made all to win the final heat in 29.72, while Lemon Ted stayed on strongly to come through to win the opening heat in 29.63. Sadly, the remaining heat had to be declared void with the hare malfunctioning of the final turn.
