A FLYING 28.79 WINNING RUN FROM ASHVILLE DOLL AROUND YOUGHAL

Barry Drake

ASHVILLE DOLL delivered a magnificent performance at Youghal on Wednesday night, while Unknown Shadow was another to star as he made it three straight wins.

All eyes were on the seventh of the night, an A0-A1, and it certainly didn't disappoint as Ashville Doll put on a masterclass performance for the local kennel of Ger Geary.

A 5-1 outsider, once she broke in front, she was always going to take the world of catching. She normally comes from off the pace to win and it really was a magnificent display. Showing bundles of pace up front, she was always holding a strong field of runners. A career-best display in a wonderful, 28.79. Kerryroad Butch two and a half lengths back in second. 

THREE ON THE TROT

Unknown Shadow, an ultra-consistent greyhound, for the kennel of Tony Hegarty, Carrignavar, recorded a hat trick of straight successes in the fourth.

Flying from trap six, he just made the corner in front, opening at the head of affairs, the leader moved three clear of Cavies Heather to halfway. From there, he was always in control. A most impressive 11th career victory, five lengths clear of Cavies Heather, in the A2 event. A 29.16 winning run.
