LOCAL Cork trainer Kieran Lynch enjoyed a great night at Curraheen Park on Tuesday night, sending out no fewer than four winners.
Quickest of those was Inforapenny, who beat a strong field of A0 runners, to win for owners, the In-For-A-Pound-Syndicate. Flying from traps, the winner just got the better of Ballinakil Jet in the race to lead around the opening turns. From there, he quickly took control of the race. Azzabi was chasing hard down the far side, but the in-form winner pulled away late on, winning by five lengths from Azzabi, in a smart 28.51.
MAKES MOST OF THE RAILS PITCH
Lynch had earlier taking races six and seven. First up was Simply Clever, with the Donal Barry-owned runner just getting the better of Dyno Sky, to win the A3 contest.
Making the most of the rails pitch at the opening corners, Simply Clever was soon in front and he battled bravely to land the spoils, in 29.37.
ROCKYBAY IN FRONT LATE ON
In the following race, Rockybay Rusty scored for Lynch and owner, Chrissie Slyne, making it two wins from just three career outings in the A2 event.
He didn't enjoy the clearest of runs at the opening corner and he had five lengths to make up on Riversidechester as they approached the third corner. However, finishing much the stronger, Rockybay Rusty, a son of the great Rockybay Foley, got up to win, by a length, in 28.98.
BIG FINISH FROM BOLT
Bartlemy Bolt made it a night to remember for the Lynch kennel when putting on a strong performance to take the closing race, an A1 550.
Owned by the Chester-Pool-Syndicate, the winner finished with a flourish to make it four wins from just ten career starts. Golden Tiger shot clear to the third turn, but the winner delivered a big finish to land the spoils, in 29.90, a neck clear of the staying-on Brogan Highway.
IN OTHER RACES
In race three, Mucky Harbour made it back to back wins, for trainer, James Kelleher and owners, Don and Gerard Buckley. A smooth victory, she broke well from the outside and she just had enough early gears to clear her inside runners. From here, she really opened up. A superb winning display in the A1 contest, five lengths clear of Churchfield Pat, in 28.52.
Trainer Murt Leahy made the trip to Cork worthwhile when taking the open sprint with Sawdust Pleaser. In what was a highly competitive affair, the Chissel-Syndicate-owner runner impressed with a smart 17.93 winning run.
In other notable races, trainer Rachel Wheeler was on the scoresheet after the ninth, as Onyourway delivered a classy performance to win the A1 550, for owners, the Lost-In-Transit-Syndicate. An impressive front winning display, a length clear of Edencurra Brae, in 29.95.
