CHEERO THE STAR AT SHELBOURNE

CHEERO THE STAR AT SHELBOURNE

Ian Fortune

It’s clear Cheero could potentially follow in the footsteps of his brilliant older half-brother, Beach Avenue, if his display at Shelbourne Park on Tuesday is any indication.

The even money favourite in the final of the Barking Buzz App A4 525, the son of Droopys Jet and Cats Belle said goodbye to graded company in some style, racing prominently before racing right away from his rivals from halfway.

The Mathew Harte trained youngster won’t be two years of age until next month but he clearly has a massive engine. He eventually crossed the line eleven length clear in a fastest of the night 28.33. It seems the Commons Seven Syndicate might be fielding some phone calls in the coming days.

SOX BEN DIGS IN

Elsewhere on the card, Ger Bradley’s Moyola Sox Ban landed the final of the €1,500 Retired Greyhound Trust ON2/ON3 525.

Fastest into stride, the son of Droopys Jet and Moyola Inion was joined and headed into the third turn by the hot favourite Droopys Nestegg but he came roaring back as they turned for home. Staying on well, Moyola Sox Ban emerge a deserving half a length scorer in 28.84.
